Here's another very simple Thanksgiving side dish. And you don't need to add a can of mushroom soup concentrate like I got when growing up. I steamed the beans rather than boiling them to help retain nutrients.
1 clove garlic mashed with 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut however they look nice to you
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
Mix the garlic, vinegar, and sesame oil.
Steam the green beans in your steamer over a scant inch of water until crunchy tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Toss with the dressing, season, and serve hot, cold, or at room temperature.
