About this Recipe
By: HempNut Cookbook
Crisp and bright green, with the satisfying, nutty taste of hempseed!
- 4 cups fresh string beans, tips trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces
- extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 small red onion, sliced into thin half-moons
- 1 to 2 cloves fresh garlic, thinly sliced
- Sea salt
- 2 teaspoons mirin
- 1/4 cup shelled hempseed
- Juice of 1 fresh lemon (about 3 tablespoons)
Step by Step Instructions
Steam the green beans until bright green and crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
Place a small amount of olive oil in a skillet. Add the onion and garlic and place over medium heat.
When the onion begins to sizzle, add a pinch of salt and sauté until the onion is limp, about 2 minutes.
Season with salt to taste and add the mirin.
Reduce the heat to low and cook, uncovered, until any liquid has evaporated.
Remove from the heat and stir in the hempseed and lemon juice.
To serve, arrange the steamed green beans on a platter and spoon the onion mixture over them. Serve immediately.
