Crank up your oven to 500°F and get ready for rich nutty-flavored green beans in no time. These are great served with an Asian themed dinner or leave out the sesame seeds and sesame oil and stick with salt and pepper seasoning for a more straightforward version.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Very tasty - just like the ones served at Asian hot food bars - but it tastes great cold as well. "
