Italian green beans sesame

12 oz Italian green beans
3/4 tbsp salad oil
3/4 tbsp lemon juice
3/4 tbsp soy sauce
3 tsp sugar
3/4 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Cook green beans as you would prefer; drain. In a small saucepan, combine remaining ingredients; heat to boiling. Pour sauce over hot green beans and serve at once. Makes 5 to 6 servings.

Toasted Sesame Seeds: Spread sesame seeds in shallow pan and place in moderate oven (350°). Remove pan when seeds are a pale brown. It will take about 20 minutes, but watch them to prevent over browning, which destroys the seeds’ finest flavors.
