This Beans & Black Sesame Paste calls for blanched beans covered with seasoned sesame seed paste, this preparation is what the Japanese called it “Goma-ae”. It’s so delicious and so filled with umami, it brings out the flavour of the vegetable and the sweet and salty combination just works fine.




  1. Blanch beans in boiling water for around 90 seconds. Drain then rinse with running cold water until there’s no more steam coming out from the vegetables. Set it aside.
  2. In a bowl combine black sesame seed powder, brown sugar and soy sauce then add this mixture to the beans.
  3. Serve garnished with toasted sesame seeds.
