spicy asian green beans
i love ordering this at restaurants, but i found the following recipe and it is such a quick and easy thing to make. for those of you who don't know, i'm currently on this diet, so i've had to search for things to eat both at home and out that are "allowed". hopefully i will be able to create a section like noel soon...

here it is:

1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 tablespoon dark seasame oil
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
3/4 lb green beans
kosher salt or sea salt

1. boil some water.
2. drop green beans in for 2 minutes.
3. drain and blanch (run cold water over them or shock them in an ice bath).
4. heat oil and pepper flakes in a pan until oil starts to smoke.
5. add beans and stir fry for 2 min.
6. turn off heat, toss in sesame seeds, seasame oil, season with salt, and serve.
