Sesame Green Beans

Well….HAPPY Friday! I hope everyone had a wonderful week!  I had a great week working with many FODMAPers!  I am so grateful that I chose a career that allows me to work with people and help them feel better so they can get on with their productive and happy lives. 🙂

I am quite happy its Friday! I love taking it down a notch, relaxing and sleeping in!  I found out today that I will be heading to NYC  in a couple weeks again for work.  I am so excited to spend some more time with my daughter!

This week, I bought some green beans and made this yummy little sesame green bean dish.  So, I thought I would share it with you.  This recipe features some black and white sesame seeds. sesame seeds

A nice combination of green beans + sesame oil + sesame seeds + soy sauce.

First, I sautéed some green beans in sesame oil and some sliced garlic pieces (remove garlic after infusing flavor FODMAPers)  Add a splash of soy sauce and cover to steam for a few minutes over low beans on the stove

Then dress the beans up with some toasted black and white sesame seeds.

That’s beans done

Sesame Green Beans


  • 4 cups green beans, ends trimmed and washed
  • 1 garlic clove sliced to infuse in oil (FODMAPers remove after infused the flavor)

  • 1 Tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1-2 teaspoons of sesame seeds, toasted (I used black and white)


  1. In medium to large skillet, add sesame oil and garlic over medium heat.
  2. Saute to infuse garlic flavor for about 1 minute--(FODMAPers remove garlic after oil is infused with flavor)
  3. Add green beans and stir while cooking about 3 minutes.
  4. Drizzle with soy sauce.
  5. Reduce heat to low and cover pan.
  6. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. Let simmer until green beans are fork tender.
