Teriyaki Green Beans: A Quick Side Dish for Busy Nights
I don’t know about you, but when I’m planning a meal, the side dish is always the last thing on mind. I’ll carefully plan out the main course and dessert, but usually settle for throwing a salad together or quickly steaming some veggies for the side. It’s an afterthought at best.
Even when I do make a side dish, I tend to go back to my tried and true favorites- Balsamic Green Beans and Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower. Honestly, I could eat those two every day and never tire of them. There’s nothing better than vegetables roasted until soft, sweet, and just slightly charred on the ends. Still, I realized I was in a bit of a side dish rut and decided it was time to branch out.
These Roasted Teriyaki Green Beans are really more of a twig than a branch, but it’s a step in the right direction.
I took my favorite Balsamic Green Beans and simply replaced the balsamic with teriyaki and tossed the roasted vegetables with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.
Despite the minimal differences in ingredients, the flavor profile is a complete change. These are sweet and garlicky, with a definite Asian flair. Best of all, they only require 5 ingredients and about 2 minutes of prep time. It’s the kind of side dish I need when my hands are wrapped up preparing the main course.
Today we’re celebrating Heart Month by sharing a heart healthy recipe that will make your taste buds and your body happy. It’s a good reminder for me that those oft-neglected veggies deserve a lot more respect.
Investing just a few minutes in these teriyaki green beans and mushrooms makes them the star of the meal, instead of that stuff you have to eat just because it’s green.
