Green Beans with Red Pepper and Garlic

Green beans, also known as string beans or snap beans, are available year-round. To preserve their fresh flavor and texture, parboil the beans, immerse them in ice water to set their color, then saute briefly.  Serves 6

1 lb organic green beans, stems trimmed

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 organic red bell pepper, seeded and cut into julienne

1/2 teaspoon chile paste or red pepper flakes

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Cut the beans into 2-inch pieces. Bring to a saucepan three-fourths full of water to a boil. Add the beans and cook until they turn bright green and are tender-crisp. 1-3 minutes. Drain the beans, then plunge them into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Drain again and set aside.

In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the bell pepper and toss and stir for about 1 minute. Add the beans and saute for 1 minute longer. Add the chile paste and garlic and toss and stir for 1 minute longer. The beans will be tender and bright green. Drizzle with the sesame oil and season with salt and black pepper. Serve immediately.
