Roasted Green Beans with Spicy Tahini Sauce is the perfect side dish for any occasion. It goes well with fish, chicken and meat. (Low-carb, Paleo, Whole30, Gluten-free)
Although green beans are available all year long and you can find it in everywhere grocery store and supermarket, it’s always better to eat them on the peak season, which is from May to September. They are much fresher and crunchy during these months and they’re always a great side dish for any kind of meat and BBQ. Besides that, this veggie is low in calories, in sugar and it’s full of fiber, vitamin K, C and A.
You can cook it in so many ways like sauté, steam, roasted or even in boiled water for only few minutes. I normally like them tender so I roast them for only 10 minutes in the oven with salt, pepper and olive oil or sauté for 7 minutes. Done! Few days ago I was preparing again my roasted green beans when I thought about adding some sauce on top of it because I wanted to innovate a lit bit. I looked inside of my pantry and the saw my tahini paste jar waiting to be used. So I made this quick sauce using a Whole30 approved hot sauce, garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper and olive oil. I blended everything in my awesome blender for 1 minute and done. In 1-minute I have a delicious sauce to enjoy along my roasted green beans.
