Chili Oil Green Bean Recipe

Mr. Juice needs his vegetables, and I found a way to make green beans that he will devour. I say devour because after I made this dish, I only got to eat 2 bites because he hoovered the rest of it. An easy, peasy side dish to make, definitely try it for yourself, it’s fantastic for people who love a bit of heat.


1/2 LB green beans (washed and make sure the stem end it snapped or cut off)

2-3 TBS of Chinese chili oil (depending on how much heat you like)

2 TBS soy sauce or Tamari sauce (Tamari is a Japanese version of soy sauce that is deeper, richer and earthier)

1 TBS sesame oil

Now What?

Heat the oven up to 450 degrees.

Mix together the soy sauce, chili oil and sesame oil.

Put your green beans in a big bowl and toss with the sauce mixture.

Pour out into a baking tray, pop in the oven and cook for 20 minutes. Once in a while you can go in an toss the green beans around to avoid the bottom layer burning, but I HEART burnt string beans, so I don’t.

You’re done. Finito. That’s it. Didn’t I tell you it was easy?
