  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 23 tablespoons warm water
  • 16 ounces fresh green beans, trimmed

In a small bowl, whisk together tahini, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, roasted garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of salt, miso paste, and 2 tablespoons of warm water.
