Why we love buttered green veggies with sesame dressing

Broccoli contains so much iron and other important vitamins and minerals which help keep your body strong and healthy. Green beans also include nitrates which you can’t find in many other vegetables other than beans. Blanching the vegetables in boiling water helps break down the cells a bit, making them more tender and helping your body absorb the goodness. When you’re done blanching the broccoli and green beans, cool them down in a bowl with ice water. When you then pan-fry them, your buttered green veggies with sesame dressing will be perfectly cooked.
