Place the oven rack to the middle.
Preheat the oven to 450℉ (230℃).
Line a large baking sheet with the tin foil.
Spread the green beans on the baking sheet.
Drizzle olive oil over the beans, sprinkle salt and black pepper to taste, toss to coat by hands.
Arrange the green beans in an even single layer. Roast 10 minutes.
Meanwhile add the garlic, ginger honey, sesame oil and red pepper flakes in a small bowl, mix until well combined.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
Pour the garlic-honey mixture over the beans, with tongs stir the green beans until evenly coated.
Arrange the beans in a even single layer again.
Return the baking sheet to the oven, and keep roasting until the beans are deeply golden brown in spots and have started to shrivel, about 11 minutes.
Season with more salt and freshly ground black pepper if needed.
Place onto a serving platter.
Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top.
Serve and enjoy!
