Green Beans with Sesame-Soy Sauce

Dec 27, 2020 2:26:28 PM Carly Hanellin

One of our favorite sides was influenced by Food Network's recipe, Green Beans with Magic Sauce. Chef Maggie would often make this for her own family, so she created a her own version to share with the F&F community.

The sauce completely makes the entire dish, and the Aleppo pepper gives it the perfect hint of heat.

We love this recipe and think you will too - find the full recipe below!
