Beans, Beans and More Beans!

Our garden is blowing us away this year.  Especially the beans.  I planted 3 different kinds of green beans, my favorite wax beans, and purple pole beans.

I’m picking a colander a day.  We’re eating beans, freezing beans, giving away beans.  Unreal.

So we don’t get sick of them, I’ve been spending a lot of time on Pinterest and Allrecipes.

These were delicious:


green beans, parboiled
2 tablespoons butter
½ cup finely minced onion
3 cloves minced garlic or garlic scapes
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Miracle Whip (or mayo)
2 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; cook onion and garlic for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add sesame seeds; cook and stir until sesame seeds are golden brown,

Mix soy sauce, Miracle Whip, and sriracha hot sauce, into onion mixture. Add green beans and toss to coat; season with salt and pepper.
