Sesame Garlic Green Beans for T & C

When we used to dine out during our stay in the orient,stir fried green beans was on almost every menu. I used to order it and then I got so bored of eating that. Then I ventured out to try other vegetarian options and the green beans were forgotten.That was until I saw it in Tamy's Blog - 3 sides of Crazy. For the month of November, I am paired with Tamy for Taste and Create . We have been paired earlier and I prepared this Cream of Tomato Soup earlier.

I wonder how I missed this recipe the last time we were paired!The moment I saw the green beans recipe this time, I decided that this was the one that I was going to cook for Taste and Create.I followed her recipe and added a garnish of toasted sesame seeds, the same way it is served in the orient
