Green beans can be boring–but not these! I made them twice in a row and ate leftovers at lunch. I used some haricots verts, those skinny French green beans, that I bought at Costco. I was concerned that some would go to waste but that concern has disappeared with this recipe. The first time I made them, my eldest was here for dinner and she asked if she could have all the leftover beans for her lunch the next day. The second time I made them, I was alone and purposely made enough to have leftovers for myself the next day.
The recipe is from Barefoot Contessa Family Style, which I picked up at the local Half Price Books. I’ve made two recipes from it so far and both recipes I made twice in a row. The other one was for her Buffalo chicken wings. I halved the recipe for the green beans so adjusted the amounts a little but I’m giving her amounts here, which she says feeds 6.
By the way, I just found this handy chart for converting kosher salt to table salt (and others). I now keep kosher salt in a Mason jar in a cupboard by the stove. I have table salt (sea salt) in a dish on the counter by the stove, since that’s what I usually use.
