Crispy Green Beans with Pesto
Very Good 4.3/5
(12 ratings)

The trick to learning to like vegetables you hate is to disguise their appearance and flavor. Think about what it is you dislike about that particular vegetable.
I asked Fred why he's anti-green beans. It turns out that he remembers the long, mushy canned beans from childhood.
Step 1: Chop the beans into 1-inch pieces.
Step 2: Change texture. Sauté them in a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper on high heat until they're crispy on the outside and still slightly firm.
Step 3: Change the flavor: Add pesto (with homemade lemony basil from the co-op) and an extra bit of parmesan cheese!
Results: "Is this pasta?" Fred asks as I hand him a plate of beans.

This stuffed bell pepper recipe is really delicious! You can use red bell peppers if you like that flavor better. It incorporates your protein, starch, and veggies in one neat package! Brown rice is used for an added nutritional punch.
