Glorious Green Beans

The low FODMAP diet has meant that we’ve tried things we’d probably wouldn’t have tried otherwise. It has honestly been very enlightening for us rather then restrictive as it’s opened our minds to other food, veg and ways to cook them
An example of this is green beans.

Green beans were never our favourite but we have re-discovered this vegetable and realised it can be used in all sorts of ways like in salads, chargrilled or in stews. A new favourite dish are these pan grilled beans with toasted sesame seeds and parmesan cheese. It is simply a divine way of eating green beans – yum!

We simply blanched a handful of green beans in some boiling water for about 3 minutes and drained them well. Next, we put them into the griddle pan with a tiny bit of oil for about 5 minutes. In the meantime, we toasted the sesame seeds in a dry small frying pan, for about 2-3 mins on medium-low heat.  All you then need to do is sprinkle your toasted seeds over your beans and add some grated Parmesan on top – so easy, yet so good!

A fabulous side dish to accompany our BBQ menu that you can download from our homepage today!
