Sauteed Beans with Peanuts and Sesame Seeds

This is a really simple but super tasty way to prepare string beans. I followed this recipe, but instead of using butter, I used olive oil. And instead of almonds, I topped the beans with a mixture of chopped peanuts and sesame seeds.

These beans are meant to be served warm, but I actually prefer them at room temperature, drizzled with a bit more olive oil and some lemon juice.
