Bring a large pot of water to boil and prepare a large bowl of ice water. Add half of green beans to boiling water and blanch for 3 minutes, then remove from pot and add to ice bath to quickly cool. Repeat with remaining green beans. In a bowl or mason jar, combine garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and honey to create sauce. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add sauce to the pan. Once the sauce starts to bubble, add green beans to the pan and toss to coat. Continue stirring together until green beans are heated through. Remove from heat and serve topped with sesame seeds.
