Simple and delicious miso sesame green beans - lightly boiled green beans tossed with a simple sesame miso dressing and sprinkled with sesame seeds.
**Look for white sesame paste and seafood stock in Asian grocery stores. The white sesame paste is called shiro neri goma, or smooth white sesame paste.
I used tahini (Middle Eastern sesame paste) in place of the Asian white sesame paste, since it's what I had in the pantry and water in place of the seafood stock with great results. The next time I'm at an Asian market, I will check out the real thing.
You can keep the sauce in a tightly closed glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
You can also make the sesame paste from scratch by grinding toasted sesame seeds. For more complete details you will want to check out Elizabeth's book.
