1 pound fresh green beans
6 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
2 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil
4 teaspoons minced garlic
1 medium red bell pepper, sliced to narrow lengthwise strips
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 cups yellow sweet corn, fresh or frozen

6, 1 cup servings.


Place the green beans in a large saucepan with one inch of water. Bring to a boil, cover and steam for 5 minutes. Green beans should still be firm. Drain. In a small bowl stir together soy sauce, balsamic vinegar and lime juice; set aside. Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook until it starts to brown. Add red bell pepper and mushrooms; stir to coat with oil. Cook 3 minutes. Add corn and green beans; stir to coat with oil. Cook an additional 2 minutes.

Stir in the soy sauce and lime juice mixture and simmer for a couple of minutes, uncovered to reduce the sauce. Serve.
