Start to Finish: 15 minutes

Servings: 8


  • 1/3 cup tahini

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)

  • 1/2 tsp. brown sugar

  • 2 lb. green beans, trimmed

  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, roughly chopped

  • Freshly cracked pepper


1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the green beans.

2. In a blender, puree the tahini, lemon juice, brown sugar, and 2 to 4 tbsp. water; season the dressing with salt.

3. Salt the boiling water generously and add the beans. Cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain the green beans and spread out on a baking sheet. Let cool slightly for 3 to 4 minutes. In a large bowl, toss the green beans with the dressing. Serve warm and top with the parsley and pepper.
