I can't walk through a Farmer's Market without wanting everything in sight. When it comes to the fresh veggies, I'd buy more than I could ever cook before it all went bad.
I love to find easy recipes for fresh vegetables so that when I see that basket full of fresh green beans for example, I can grab a bagful knowing exactly how I'll fix them.
Fresh Green Beans Amandine
1/2 C sliced almonds
2 lbs fresh green beans
1/3 C butter
1 T lemon juice
1 t salt
1/4 t pepper
Bake sliced almonds in a shallow pan on 350 for 5 -7 minutes or until toasted. You'll know they are nearly ready when you smell toasted almonds wafting through your kitchen and you faint from joy.
Snap the ends off the green beans, then snap them in half in the middle. (This is a great job for kids.) Drop them in boiling water and cook for 4 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain the beans.
Melt the butter in a serving dish and add the almonds, beans, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss to coat and serve immediately.
Serves 8-10. Looks very pretty.
