Green Beans and Asparagus with Sesame Chile Oil

Green Beans and Asparagus with Sesame Chili OIl

At my bi-weekly trip to Trader Joe’s, I found my favorite type of green beans, haricot verts, available. I thought I would stir fry them with the asparagus that I already had at home. So when I got home, I decided to season the vegetables with some sesame chili oil for a little heat and orange vest and juice for a little sweetness. This simple and healthy side dish would go great with chicken or shrimp!
