- 2 Tbsp. sesame oil
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 shallot
- 2 Tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)

Trim ends off green beans. Mince garlic, and chop shallot.
Add sesame oil to a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Let heat for a couple minutes until hot.
Carefully add shallot and garlic. Heat for 20-30 seconds.
Add green beans and stir well to coat.
Saute until just tender, about 5-6 minutes, stirring often so garlic doesn’t burn.
Add tamari. Toss to combine and cook 1-2 minutes.
When serving, don’t forget the garlic/shallot pieces on the bottom of the pan – huge flavor!
For gluten-free, use tamari.
