About this recipe: This is my interpretation of the green beans from my favourite Japanese restaurant. Serve with a grilled steak! You can omit the miso paste if you choose.


Serves: 4 

  • 230g fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) low sodium soya sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon miso paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli flakes
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Place the green beans into a steamer insert and set in a pot over 2cm of water. Bring to a boil, cover and steam for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer beans to a serving bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the soya sauce, miso paste, red chili flakes, garlic and ginger. Pour over the green beans and toss to coat. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.

Heat a dry skillet over medium heat. Add sesame seeds and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly toasted.
