Sambal Green Beans
I haven't done much in the way of creative cooking in the kitchen for a really long time. Mostly, it's been tried and true dishes that I found to be easy to throw together and quick to cook. This was thrown together in about 10 minutes from inception to table.
1/2 lb green beans, cut in half
2 T extra virgin olive oil
1/2 t salt
2 t sambal
1 t honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4-1/2 t sesame oil
Heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in green beans and salt. Cook for a few minutes, or until tender-crisp. Add in the sambal and honey and stir until it evenly coats the green beans. Add in garlic and stir until fragrant. Remove from heat and drizzle with sesame oil.
You can increase the amount of sambal to taste, depending on how hot you like your beans.
