Japanese style string beans

We recently were invited for lunch by my good friend Catherine and her lovely family. She made a delicious vegan feast just for us and one of the dishes was japanese style beans.

It is really good and makes a great addition to any meal.

Here is her recipe. It turned out just a tasty as I remembered.

"You need to go to a TOKO and in the Japanese section buy some toasted sesame seeds. They come in thin packets approximately 12cm x 8cm.  About 2 heaped desert spoons are needed - place in pestle & mortar and crush a bit until there is some powder, some large chunks and some whole ones. Then add about a teaspoon of toasted sesame oil, a level teaspoon of sugar and 2 tablespoons (30ml) of soy sauce, and the same of water. Cook the beans as required (I boil for 4-5 minutes), drain, cool...then add dressing. Voila!"

This dish can be served hot or cold - versatile and delicious!
