It’s Friday!! Last night I was trying to think of what to make for supper and I remember picking up some green beans and I thought it would be a great side dish to go with some baked haddock. It was so nice to have just a simple dinner after a long day. I was really impressed with the flavor combination on the beans. Balsamic vinegar is a great addition to any quick vegetable saute.
To finish off the beans, I topped them with Parmesan cheese and sliced almonds.
- 2 Cups of Green Beans
- 1 Tbsp. Water
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. Basil Paste
- Sea Salt
- Cracked Black Pepper
- Sliced almonds
- Parmesan Cheese
- Preheat saute pan on high and add the water and beans.
- Cook beans until the water dissolves about 3 minutes and then add balsamic vinegar, garlic and basil paste
- Stir fry for another minute and add the pepper.
- Top off with sliced almonds and Parmesan cheese
Kitty on the counter making sure everything is going according to plan.
Zesty Tip: To make a garlic paste, slice the garlic finely and add a little bit of salt on the board and rub the garlic back and forth over it on the board. The salt will break down the garlic and make a great paste for the beans.
So there you have it! A quick and simple bean dish for absolutely everyone. Try it and let me know what you think. As I was eating it last night I thought that a nice addition would be a splash of some red pepper flakes or a dash of hot sauce to really quick it up. Nonetheless I enjoyed it!
I hope you have an awesome Friday and a great Valentine’s day! We have a busy weekend lined up with the Olympics, Jack Frost Winter Festival, and some music lessons. Enjoy your weekend and we shall talk on Monday.
