What to do with Green Beans?

19 Jul

Greetings friends,

Volunteers needed for Harvest Festival!

Please let Melissa know if you are interested. This is our biggest event of the year and I would love some help to make this a truly excellent event.

This week’s Harvest contains nectarines, carrots, strawberries, lettuce, radishes or arugula, green beans, fresh herbs (basil or parsley), and tomatoes.

Recipes for Green Beans: Frijole Mole

This recipe is from an inspirational book: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. You can eat this dip with crackers or in wraps. When I made this recipe, I didn’t let the beans get very tender, so the end product was a bit tough. Cook the beans well!

  1. Steam green beans until tender.
  2. Saute onions over medium heat in oil until transparent.
  3. Combine beans, cooked onions, eggs, basil, and lemon juice in food processor and blend into coarse paste.
  4. Remove puree to a bowl and combine with enough mayo or yogurt to hold mixture together.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Tip:You can steam the eggs to hard boil them, same as you would anything else. They take about 12 minutes to cook. Much easier to do and eggs peel nicely.

If you have other recipes for green beans, please pass them on.
