French Bean with Black Sesame Seed

Rich in vitamins and minerals, sesame seeds are crunchy and delicious. Black sesame seeds have a slightly stronger flavour than the white and yellow sesame and visually provide a delightful contrast to the French beans. This is a lovely little recipe that will make your tummy happy, whether on its own as starter or as an accompaniment to a main course.
