Garlic-Parmesan Sesame Stir Fry Green Beans

I spent 10 minutes trying to think of what to name this and I came up with Garlic-Parmesan Sesame Stir Fry Green Beans. It was either that or How To Love Green Beans because that’s exactly what ended up happening here. You know this recipe is amazing if it made me, International Hater of Green Beans, not only eat it but enjoy it.

I’m not sure if it’s the sautéing process, or the parmesan cheese, or a combination of both plus the bright green appearance, but I was very impressed. The flavour is much more enhanced this way than just plain green beans, and your kitchen is left smelling extremely fragrant, as if it were butter cookies being baked instead. This would make a delicious side dish for your holiday spread and is pretty easy calorie wise! I would go as far to say, I now understand why mom always told me to eat my vegetables.

Cook Time:
Total Time:
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 lb green beans
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Instructions
  • Set a pot of water to boil. When boiling, blanch the green beans for about 1-2 minutes to brighten the beans.
  • Remove from the hot water and immerse in cold water immediately to stop the cooking process (you still want the beans to be crispy). Pat dry with a paper towel.
  • In a pan over medium high heat, heat the oil. Sauté the green beans in the oil and add the seasonings plus the parmesan cheese. Sauté for 3 minutes.
  • Add the sesame seeds and toss in pan then remove from heat. Serve immediately.

      Thanks Rachel! The garlic and parmesan elevates it in a way I didn’t think possible!!

  2. Recipe names give me so much trouble too! I like green beans, but I very rarely LOOOOVE them. I’m betting I would love these though!

      Thanks Kiersten! I think you’d love these too! Before this I wouldn’t dare put one in my mouth – what a difference!

  3. I’m already a big fan of green beans so I definitely need to try this lovely version! I adore the parmesan addition 😉

      Thanks Consuelo! I think I’m also headed down that big fan part after these too!

  4. These sound amazing!! My boyfriend isn’t too fond of green beans, but that just means more for me 🙂 Parmesan sounds like the perfect addition!
