green beans… however you may like it

Green beans are my go to vegetable- easy to cook, work with a large variety of main courses, most people enjoy them- and you can add lots of different ingredients for more interesting flavors, textures and color. I prefer the thinner green beans, often called haricot vert.

This is a basic recipe to start and then add my fresh tomato sauce on top, sprinkle with almonds, add some a bit of lemon zest and fresh lemon juice, saute come shallots and toss- the idea is to get creative or use up what you may have around in your kitchen.
