In terms of simple sides for Asian inspired (or any!) dishes, this one is quick, easy, and delicious.  Sauteing the green beans in the sesame oil and garlic adds a great flavor to the beans without any too many calories.  Depending on your preferences, you could add 1 tbsp. of soy sauce to up the Asian flavors, add some red chili flakes if you like things spicy, or add some ginger along with the garlic.
