    This is a great side dish to make as part of a larger Japanese feast because it can be made quickly and set aside until needed while you work on more complex dishes. Green beans are parboiled and mixed with a simple sesame miso dressing.

    Serves: 2 

    • 1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
    • 250g green beans, stringed
    • 2 tablespoons red miso
    • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
    • 1/2 tablespoon mirin

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

    1. Toast the white sesame seeds in a dry saucepan over medium heat for a few minutes or until they are beginning to brown. Don't let them burn. Transfer to a mortar and pestle or spice grinder and roughly grind them.
    2. Cut the beans in half, and blanch them in salted boiling water for a couple of minutes until they are just tender. Drain and rinse with cold water.
    3. Add the miso to the sesame seeds and mix into a paste. Add the sugar and mirin and mix.
    4. In a mixing bowl combine the beans and miso dressing and mix until the beans are well coated. Serve at room temperature in individual bowls.
