Haricot Vert with Shallots and Potatoes


Haricot Vert = Green Beans Haricot Vert = Green Beans
Number of Servings: 6


    1 ˝ lbs. haricot vert
    1 lb. teeny-weeny new potatoes
    2 shallots, chopped
    3-4 thick slices of bacon, chopped
    1 Tb. good quality balsamic vinegar
    Salt and Pepper


Set a large pot of salted water over high heat, and bring to a boil. Trim the ends of the green beans. Once the water is boiling, blanch the beans for 1-2 minutes, until the color is bright and the skins are softer. Remove the beans with a skimmer.
Next, add the micro taters to the boiling water. Par-boil (partially cook) for 4-5 minutes. Remove the potatoes and pour out the water.
Using the same pot, sizzle the bacon over medium heat, until it is almost cooked. Then add the shallots. Sauté another 2-3 minutes.
Add the potatoes and salt and pepper well. Sauté 2-3 more minutes before adding the beans.
Once the beans are in the pot, stir and sauté another 3-4 minutes. Add a little oil if the veggies are sticking. When the beans are warmed through and the potatoes are fully cooked, taste for salt and pepper, then drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Serve warm.
