Ever See a Green Bean Do This?Posted: June 15, 2010
Tonight I experimented with a recipe I read about in Heidi Swanson’s book Super Natural Cooking. This cookbook is really amazing. It isn’t just recipes but ways to make your whole life more natural.
I made my own version tonight with what I had for her citrus green beans.
The coolest part of the recipe was using my mandolin to slice little circles of green beans.
- 1 lb organic green beans
- 1/2 pint mushrooms
- zest of one lime
- zest of one lemon
- garlic clove
Slice the green beans into tiny circles with either a mandolin or food processor. This takes time and try not to cut your finger like I did. While you are slices start sautéing the mushrooms in the oil, S&P and garlic. When the mushrooms are almost done add the beans and then 3 min later add the zest.
Along with the beans I made some harvest grains and organic chicken breasts baked in an almond meal, garlic powder, chili powder and S&P crust.
I think tonight was the first time we haven’t had salad with dinner. It was kind of weird, like something was missing.
Salads and summer go hand in hand.
