Green beans you won’t be able to stop eating.
Planning a picnic this Memorial Day? Or a backyard barbecue this long weekend?
Then, you’ve got to make these green beans.
I guarantee they will be the talk of the table.
I first made “Green Beans with Miso and Almonds” last Thanksgiving as a novel alternative to the usual green bean casserole. My in-laws couldn’t stop eating it. Each of them kept reaching for seconds, even thirds. Now, whenever my husband sees me trimming fresh green beans from the farmers markets, he secretly hopes they’re destined for this dish.
When guests sit down to the holiday spread, they may squeal with delight over the sight of crisp potato cakes, warm homemade rolls and creamy, cheesy cauliflower gratin.
But secretly, they’re glad you put out some green beans, too.
Because for all the over-the-top indulgences we can’t get enough of at this time of year, we also crave just a little respite with something fresh, crisp and green.
“Green Beans in Brown Butter and Ginger Fish Sauce” fits that bill.
The recipe comes from the Wall Street Journal and it was created by Chef Edward Lee of 610 Magnolia in Louisville, KY. You may remember him as a competitor in last season’s “Top Chef” competition.
