String bean salad with sesame seeds
It's the simple things that end up being the best, right? That's almost always true, well, at least that's true with this phenomenal, easy, dairy free, glute free, vegan (gotta mention them all :P) string bean salad with sesame seeds. We added both the regular, "beige" sesame seeds and black ones as well, just to play with some texture, contrast and color. It's dishes like this that are highly welcome in summer. Made in about 15 minutes from start to finish (using cooked beans), this salad can be eaten both warm or cold, which makes it perfect for both picnics or quick midweek / weekend starters, light dinners. Easy, affordable and delish.

Lets get cooking!

ONLY A FEW MOMENTS SPENT IN THE KITCHEN AND YOU WILL HAVE THIS FANTASTIC DISH IN FRONT OF YOU.

METHOD

  • Shallots

    Peel and thinly slice the shallots (or onions). Add about a tablespoon of olive oil to a hot pan, add shallots and cook for about 5 minutes over low heat.

  • String beans

    Add cooked string beans to the pan and cook over low heat for about 5 minutes.

  • Toast seeds and Serve

    Toast sesame seeds in a hot pan (no need for oil). You can use a mixture of black and white sesame seeds to add some contrast. Add toasted sesame seeds to your string beans and shallots. Stir to combine, add lemon zest, season to taste with salt and pepper and serve. Optionally add shredded parmesan cheese or tofu or serve this salad with fish. Serve cold or warm. Enjoy.
