I apologize to all 7 of my faithful blog readers (you know who you are!). I have neglected the blog over the past several weeks, but I haven’t neglected making lots of delicious food! This post is only the first of many as I try to clear this backlog of recipes I’ve made. That means you’ll see a new post almost every day!
This is a perfect dish to break back into the blog – when I think of simple side dishes, this is my go to – green beans that still have a springy crunch, tossed with sweet shallots, olive oil and butter. The recipe comes together quickly: blanch the beans for a minute and a half, shocking immediately after in ice water. Caramelize the shallots in butter and olive oil, then toss the beans to reheat.
