Sesame Beans

My love of oriental flavours (I grew up in Vancouver in the '60's) led to this one, a favorite now of my family and friends. Thought I'd share it!

10 oz fresh or frozen cut green beans (thaw first, and drain)
6 mushrooms, sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp root ginger, minced
1 onion, sliced

1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp 5 spice
1/4 cup white sesame seeds

1 tbsp canola, or plain olive or plain sesame oil
splash sherry
splash soy sauce

Mix toasted sesame oil, tahini, and soy sauce. Put aside.

Fire up wok or large cast-iron frying pan on high, and put in canola. Fry onions, garlic and ginger until beginning to brown. Add mushrooms and stir until partially cooked. Add 1/2 of the sesame seeds and 5 spice, stir. Add splash of sherry and soy sauce. Turn heat to medium. Add beans, stir to combine and cover. If you wish to season with salt or add a bit of heat, do so at this stage. Let cook for 5 or six minutes.

Add tahini/soy sauce mixture, combine, and cook with lid off for another two minutes. Put into serving bowl, garnish with remaining sesame seeds, and serve.

Makes an excellent side dish for chicken.
