Green Beans with Tahini

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

Tahini is a brilliant pantry ingredient to keep on hand for a creamy yet no-cook sauce. Here it brings a touch of Mediterranean flavor to simple steamed green beans. Serve with grilled lamb or shrimp.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 lb. green beans, ends trimmed
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. tahini
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 Tbs. coarsely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • Pinch of Aleppo pepper or crushed red pepper flakes

Preparation

  • In a pot fit with a steamer insert, bring an inch of water to a boil over high heat. Put the green beans in the steamer, sprinkle with kosher salt, cover tightly, and steam until just tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the oil, tahini, lemon juice and zest, 1 tsp. salt, and 2 Tbs. water until combined. Add the green beans and toss well to coat. Toss with the mint and Aleppo pepper. Season to taste with salt.

    This was delicious. It didn't hurt that I used garden fresh haricot verts with the tahini dressing. Simple and amazing. I will make this again.
