Stir Fried Green Beans and Tomato



This was a quick vegetable side dish my husband came up with. It was insanely delicious!
He used black bean sauce and it was an instant hit with me! If I had thought of it at the time, I would have sprinkled toasted sesame seeds on top.

Fresh green beans, ends trimmed
cherry or pear tomato's cut into half
1 tbl olive oil
1 tbl black bean sauce
sesame seeds
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp minced garlic

Place your olive oil into a pan and heat until shimmering

Add your beans and garlic and saute until the beans become a bit tender

Add your tomatoes, black bean sauce and salt and pepper

Continue sauteing until the beans are your desired tenderness

Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve
