Today's recipe is a side dish! It's made with basic ingredients that blend together perfectly to create an exciting twist on green beans. In the midst of college applications and school work, it's nice to know that it doesn't take too much effort to make a delicious meal.

2 tablespoons of olive oil
5 cloves of chopped garlic
5 cups of green beans
Chopped parsley
1 teaspoon sesame seeds (optional)
1 lemon
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 medium sized chopped tomatoes

1. Add the green beans to a pot and cover them with water.
2. Boil for about 10-15 minutes with the lid on or until they become tender (but be careful to not overcook them).
3. Drain the beans.
4. In a wok pan, add the two tablespoons of olive oil.
5. Add the garlic and let it sit for about 30 seconds on medium heat before you add the green beans.
6. Stir the green beans into the garlic.
7. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice of the halves into your mixture.
