Fresh green beans tossed with garlic and toasted almonds.
Bring a pot of water to boil and season with a generous pinch of sea salt.
Get a large bowl of ice water ready.
In a deep 10-inch skillet, melt the bacon fat. Throw in the slivered almonds, stir occasionally until toasted and golden. Remove to a small bowl and set them off to the side.
Drop the green beans into the salted boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Immediately remove and plunge them into the bowl of ice water, to lock in that bright green color.
Drain and shake off any excess water before placing the green beans in the skillet with the bacon fat. Toss and cook the beans for a few minutes to get them hot again.
Using a garlic press, press in the garlic. Add the lemon juice, if desired.
Season with a generous amount of black pepper and toss, cooking until the green beans are al dente or to your liking (about 8-10 minutes).
Add the toasted almonds back in to the skillet, toss and serve!
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.
Yes! You can cook radishes and they are delicious! The radishes mellow some but still hold firmness. And ramps! They are available in spring for only about 8 weeks so eat them while you can. They have a pungent garlic flavor and make everything taste like spring!
