Fresh green beans sauteed with onions, garlic, and balsamic vinegar. Yum! Another good reason to eat your veggies!
First, drizzle a bit of olive oil in the pan. Add your onions and saute until translucent and beginning to become brown. Add pressed garlic and trimmed green beans. Stir and allow to saute for a few minutes. This step adds a lot of flavor as the beans toast a bit. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the water and balsamic vinegar. Allow beans to cook until much of the water has evaporated and balsamic vinegar is thick and rich-looking. If the beans are not tender enough at this point, you can add a bit more water and continue to cook until they are as soft as you like them. We like them on the crisp side, so this cooking time is perfect.
Note: I placed the beans in an oven safe serving bowl and wrapped them and stored them in the refrigerator. I then reheated them, with our chicken, in the oven at 300ºF for about 20 minutes as I put the finishing touches on our salad and set the table.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Cassava, also known as yuca, was one of my discoveries when visiting the Mexican vendors at my local flea market. Although the root vegetable is not indigenous to Mexico I seasoned this dish with some popular Mexican seasonings, then roasted it and enjoyed it (along with a couple of cold Dos Equis)!
Grilled fresh corn on the cob.
The big debate? Cook with husks on or husks off? I say husks off! Cook on the grill, this way the sweet corn kernels get a smoky-grilled flavor. There’s no need to blanch it first. Use a stove top grill or outside grill–just peel, remove silk and place right on the grill. Simple as that! Then top it with a homemade chili lime mayo and fresh cilantro.
The best stuffed portabellos ever, and they are gluten-free and high in protein using almond meal instead of bread crumbs!
Oh, this sauce. Drinkable.
