A SIMPLE PREPARATION WITH BIG FLAVOR

A simple side of veggies is a must with my meals!

These lemony green beans make me all kinda happy.
These lovely greens are based on Miznon’s “bag of beans" that I absolutely love!

I often find the simplest preparation can be the most pleasing to the pallet and this is proof of it. 

Perfect paired with a simple za'atar crusted salmon

Lemon & Garlic Green Beans

Based off of the famous "beans in a bag" from Miznon

PREPARATION TIME: 10 MIN COOKING TIME: 8 MIN WAITING TIME: 10 MIN TOTAL TIME: 28 MIN

INGREDIENTS

  • 500g green bean (optional to trim)
  • juice and zest of half a lemon
  • 1 small clove of garlic, finely grated
  • 1 tbsp of good olive oil
  • a good sprinkle of sea salt
  • 2 tbsp dukkah (optional)
  •  pinch of chili flakes (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add salt and bring a pot of water (large enough to hold your beans) to a boil
  2. Add beans and blanch for about 6 to 8 minutes. They should be crisp but soft enough to bite and should keep their color.
  3. Transfer your beans to an ice bath to stop the cooking process. When completely cold, drain with a strainer.
  4. Put beans in a bowl big enough to mix. Add minced garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, and olive oil, mix well, season to taste with sea salt
  5. Plate your beans and top with dukkah and chili flakes if using.
  6. DEVOUR!
