Green and yellow beans with peppers and garlic

I use string beans for this recipe, a mixture of yellow and green. The sesame oil adds an interesting flavour to the dish.

1/2 lb green beans
1/2 lb yellow beans
2 tsp olive oil
1 small red and one small yellow pepper (seeded and julienned)
1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
1 tsp sesame oil
salt and pepper to taste.

Boil the bean until tender but crisp, about 3 mins
Drain, plunge in iced water to stop the cooking then drain again
Heat olive oil over a medium heat( I use a wok here )
Add the peppers and cook for about 2 mins
Add the beans and cook for a couple more minutes
Add the chili and garlic, and saute until cooked.
Drizzle with the sesame oil and season.

A ZERO cholesterol dish with only 50 cals a serving!!!
