Veggies don’t have to be boring! These crispy green beans are tossed in a tangy sauce that will have your family licking the bowl clean and asking for more.


  • 1 ½ teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 12 ounces of fresh green beans, cleaned and trimmed (defrosted frozen green beans would also work)
  • 1 tablespoon orange-ginger stir fry sauce, like the La Choy brand
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water (omit if using frozen green beans)
  • Red pepper flakes to taste, optional
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Over medium heat, add olive oil and shallot to a large skillet. Pan fry the shallots until golden brown and fragrant.
  2. Add green beans, red pepper flakes, pepper and toss to coat. Sauté green beans for approximately 5 minutes.
  3. While green beans cook, whisk together orange-ginger stir fry, low sodium soy, and Worcestershire sauces in a small bowl.
  4. Add one tablespoon of water to green beans. Once water evaporates, drizzle sauce over green beans and toss to coat. Reduce heat to medium-low heat and sauté for 1 minute longer or until heated through.
  5. Spoon green beans into dish and sprinkle sesame seeds for garnish.
