Sometimes when I cook for myself, I spend so much time on the main dish that I forget to even make side dishes or salads. That is a problem.
Part of my being healthy in 2010 involves eating a ton more vegetables. Thus far I have been really successful and have come up with some great new recipes that will be shared soon. One of my favorites so far has been these green beans. They are loaded with about 6 cloves of chopped garlic and a healthy dose of crushed red pepper flakes to give the beans some heat! They are seriously delicious. I eat them like popcorn.
Also, places like Trader Joe’s has made my life so much easier by already trimming the ends off of the green beans so they are ready to go when you get home
I have also started a fabulous finishing salt collection which works perfectly for this dish. I sprinkled some crushed pink Himalayan salt on top of these beans and it was life changing. Amazing. I could have eaten these all day. In fact I did… and then I had to make more for dinner.
