It seams like the part of dinner I struggle with the most is coming up with tasty, economical sides. The same couple seem to get trotted out over and over. I'm in need of creativity here.
What are your go-to side dishes?
Here's a great way to dress up some canned green beans. Even my non-green bean eaters will go for this on. I'm sure that it would taste even better with fresh beans. Have to try that this summer!
Sesame Green Beans
3/4 pound fresh green beans,steamed or 2-16 oz. cans, drained
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted
Warm green beans in a skillet. Add the butter, soy sauce and sesame seeds; toss to coat. Yield: 6 servings.
