  • 250g trimmed green beans
  • 3 tablespoons room-temperature unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons miso
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons minced shallot
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup of sake
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth (or water)
  • Sesame seeds (optional)



  1. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the green beans until crisp-tender then drain and transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool. Once cool, drain and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the butter and miso in a small bowl. In a large pan, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat then add beans. Season them with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Stir in the shallots and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add sake then cook until almost evaporated. Add vegetable broth or water, then cook until sauce thickens and reduces by half.
  3. Lower the heat to medium then add the whipped miso butter. Stir through the beans until a creamy sauce forms. Garnish with sesame seeds, then serve and enjoy!
