  • cast iron skillet
  • small bowl
  • whisk
  • measuring spoons
  • silicone spatula or wooden spoon


Green Beans

  • 1 lb green beans
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil (Or other neutral oil)

Sesame Miso Dressing


  • Wash and trim the green beans. Peel and mince the garlic cloves.
  • Add half the neutral oil to a cast-iron skillet and simmer the garlic for 2-3 minutes on low heat. Add the rest of the green beans and the rest of the oil and cook for 15 additional minutes until the green beans are somewhat blistered. If the garlic starts to char, move the pieces to the edge of the skillet to prevent burning. It is important to keep the heat on low. Don't rush the process!
  • Meanwhile, add the water, miso, rice vinegar, and toasted sesame oil to a small bowl and whisk to combine. If the miso doesn't break apart very well, microwave the mix for 15 seconds and try again. Taste the dressing and add a splash of tamari if you want more salt.
  • Once the green beans are somewhat blistered, add the sesame miso dressing to the skillet. Simmer until the dressing has thickened and sticks to the green beans.
  • Add the green beans to a small casserole dish or a plate and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
