Happy Green Beans

Jazz up your traditional green beans with this Happy Green Bean Recipe that uses natural flavors of seeds and spices to bring out the wonderful flavor.  

Ingredients:
• 2 cups chopped green beans
• 2 TBS olive oil
• 2 tsp brown or black mustard seeds
• A few red pepper flakes
• 2 tsp lemon juice
• 1/2 tsp tumeric
• 1 tsp minced ginger
• 1 tsp black pepper
• sea salt to taste
• 2 TBS sesame seeds
• 4 TBS fresh grated coconut (or unsweetened coconut flakes)
• 2 TBS chopped cilantro

Steam the beans for 10 minute. In a non-stick pan, heat the olive oil. Add the mustard seeds. As the seeds start popping, add the beans, turmeric, minced ginger, lemon juice, salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes and sauté for a few minutes. Beans should be tender but not mushy. Reduce heat to low. In another pan, toast the sesame seeds for a few minutes until they turn light brown. Transfer beans to a serving dish. Top with the sesame seeds, grated coconut and cilantro.
