In Season: Green Beans

I heart green beans. They are definitely up there on my “favorite veggie” list. I have a constant supply of frozen hericot verts in my freezer throughout the winter but there is something to say about fresh green beans – I love how the beans from the Farmer’s Market are never perfectly shaped and sized. It makes them real. Now that they are in season I haven’t touched my frozen stash. Have no fear, I’ll be back soon 🙂

My favorite way to prepare? Simple and easy.
1 lb. green beans
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper
Crushed red pepper (for some heat!)

Saute it all together now…

My very veggie-meal (it was needed after a day of barely any veggies and an indulgent day/night before) Green beans, zucchini with a sriracha sour-cream and Rach’s Tomato, Avocado & Hearts of Palm salad.

    My favorite vegetable is cauliflower… or spinach. I also reallllly love broccoli, zucchini and green beans. I notice I tend to eat TONS of green veggies. Not so much of the rest of the rainbow. I need to change that.


    i have such fond memories helping my mom prep string beans as a kid….also helping her choose them at the grocery store – they don't really do that anymore, do they? now they come packaged.

    I used to despise green beans, but that was because I only tried the fried, greasy, oil-drenched Chinese version. Now I adore them, esp just simply steamed with some seasonings and retaining its fresh crunch.
    My fav veggie is still broccoli, though!
