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
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.
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.
