Crispy Green Beans with Pesto

Very Good 4.1/5

Crispy Green Beans with Pesto

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. Submitted by: STEPFANIER

Chicken Pesto Sandwich W/ Golden Raisins

Here's a sandwich I made up, inspired by a pretty decent sandwich I ate at the airport, oddly enough. I recommend getting a flavorful pesto, the kind I bought was a bit bland. The tzatziki sauce pulled it through. Also, the flavors meld together quite well when chicken mixture is made overnight or two. Submitted by: FATTYMCFATFAT
