Green Bean and Mushroom Sesame Salad.

Last weekend, we visited one of my favorite weekend spots in Seattle – the Ballard farmer’s market.  Among the overflowing baskets of cherries and fresh peaches, I also stumbled across an impressive display of fresh beans.

IMG_1519 (640x427)

I hadn’t planned on buying any produce, but something about those dark purple beans was too intriguing to pass up.  I ended up filling a bag with the solid purple beans, as well as another variety that was purple and green speckled.  I wish I could remember the names of these varieties!

IMG_1610 (640x427)

Back at home, I had an idea for a green bean salad I had been wanting to make ever since I had tried something similar at a restaurant a few nights prior.  The beans mysteriously turned from purple to green when they were cooked, but it sure didn’t affect the freshness or the flavor.

Green Bean and Mushroom Sesame Salad

Print this recipe!

Ingredients: (serves 4)

  • 2 lbs green beans (or purple beans!)
  • 10 crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium cucumber, sliced and halved
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp grapeseed oil (or other mild oil)
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp amino acids (or soy sauce)
  • 1/4 tsp stone ground mustard
  • salt to taste
  • sesame seeds for garnish (optional)

Instructions:  Whether your beans are purple, green, or blue – the cooking method is all the same. 

IMG_1612 (640x427)

Start by trimming off the woody ends and  cutting the beans into bite sized pieces.  Add to a large mixing bowl and rinse.

IMG_1617 (640x427)

In a smaller bowl or jar, combine oils, vinegar, aminos (or soy sauce), and mustard.

IMG_1614 (640x427)

Whisk or shake to combine into a dressing!

IMG_1616 (427x640)

Slice mushrooms…

IMG_1619 (640x427)

And sauté over medium high heat until softened and browned.

IMG_1626 (640x427)

While the mushrooms cook, bring a large pot of water up to a boil and blanch beans for 3-5 minutes, just until tender.

IMG_1621 (640x422)

When beans are beginning to soften, drain pot into a colander to cool.  Remove mushrooms from cooking pan and add to beans to allow them to cool as well.

IMG_1631 (640x428)

While beans and mushrooms are cooling, halve and slice your cucumber into thin moons.  (De-seeding is optional!)  Add cucumber to a large mixing bowl.

IMG_1625 (640x427)

Combine beans, mushrooms, and cucumbers and pour dressing over the salad.  Mix well to thoroughly combine, and allow flavors to marinate for at least 30 minutes before serving.  Add any additional salt to taste, and garnish with sesame seeds before serving.

IMG_1632 (640x427)

Sesame is one of my all-time favorite flavors, and this salad has that perfect blend of Asian sweetness and tang that I love so much.

IMG_1640 (640x427)

Serve along side some brown rice and crispy tofu for an Asian-inspired dinner, or enjoy the leftovers cold for lunch the next day.  This is one of those salads that just gets better with time.

IMG_1643 (640x427)

Enjoy!

I think your mystery beans are commonly known as Dragon Tongues!

Yes! I knew the label was either dragon or devil something. That must be it – thank you! :)

Emilia @ Namaste Gurl     at 7:46 pm

I bought purple beans at the farmer’s market just cuz they were purple, hehe :) I was sad to hear they turn green when cooked. It was worth a try! Purple is most definitely the new green!

Salad looks wonderful- will have to make for a potluck or such!

Christina     at 7:58 pm

I think the speckled ones are called Cranberry. I tried to cook them last week but I didn’t know you could eat the skins! Just 3 to 5 minutes is ok even if the beans are full grown? Looks wonderful :)

Looks and sounds tasty! I bought sesame oil and rice vinegar for a recipe a couple months ago and haven’t really used them since, so this would be a great use.

I love the pictures of the overflowing bean basket! That just screams summer :) Love it!

Amy     at 8:36 pm

I was going to comment that the speckled beans are called Dragon Tongue but I see you now know that! Anyways, I am definitely going to try this recipe because my local co-op has Dragon Tongue beans and I am tempted by their beauty. Thanks for sharing :)

ok random question: do you know if the aminos have to be refrigerated? It doesn’t say on the bottle, but it just seems weird not to?

Hi Emily- What’s the difference between soy sauce and aminos? Thanks :)

Those beans are so pretty. I’m a little sad they change to green when they’re cooked, but also really intrigued. Do they taste the same as plain green beans?

[Reply]

Alex @ fightcancerwithfood     at 1:41 pm

We have those purple beans growing in our garden – I love how freaky looking they are! I was so disappointed when I first cooked them and they turned green, but they’re still tasty. Good chopped up raw in salads too, and then they stay purple!
