Beans To Bundle Up With

This is a quick post because I have a photo I am excited to use. This is the veg I served with the previous post (Rack of Lamb in Puff Pastry) and if you are looking to make this dish, then here is a nice veg on the side.

Do these in advance and re-heat to serve.

Green Bean Bundles

15 - 20 Green Beans, trimmed
1 Stalk of a Green Onion, cut in half
Sesame Oil
Sprinkle of Paprika
Salt and Pepper to Taste

In a large sauce pan, bring salted water to boil. Add drizzle of sesame oil. Blanch green beans for 1 minute then refresh in ice bath. Repeat with green onion. Use the picture as a guide.

Reheat in a steam insert or your microwave or whatever you feel comfortable with.

Sprinkle salt and paprika just before serving.

Serves 4.

Variation: Toast some sliced almonds and sprinkle on for Haricot Almandine. You can drizzle some hazelnut oil if you have some and then these are very tasty.
