  • 200 g fine green beans (approximately 1.5-2 cups)

For the dressing

  • 2 tbsp tamari (soy) sauce
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sriracha - or to taste
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 3-4 tsp white or black sesame seeds, or a mix


  • Trim the beans. Blanch in boiling water or cook in a microwave for 1-2 minutes until crisp-tender. Plunge into cold water.
  • Whisk together all the dressing ingredients except the sesame seeds, and pour over the beans. Add the seeds and gently mix everything together.
  • Serve cold, with any excess dressing on the side.
