The past few days, I have been devouring a food blog I recently discovered, "Kitchen Vignettes". The recipes are all hearty, wholesome, and farm to table. There are a lot of short, beautiful videos on the site of her harvesting produce and then whipping it up into something delicious. The videos really capture how special it is to know where the food comes from and see exactly how it ends up on the dinner table. We love putting together your CSA boxes and imagining the many ways you all might be using your produce! Well, here is a recipe from the Kitchen Vignettes website. I will share a link at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

Garlic Dill Green Beans with a Dijon Vinaigrette 

  • Around 1/2 lb green beans
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 1 small bunch radishes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Fresh dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Dijon vinaigrette:
  • 1 tbsp whole grain dijon
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Snap the ends off the beans and cut in half or thirds, depending on how long your beans are. Bring a pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Blanch the beans for 3 minutes or until a deep green but still crunchy. Drain and set aside. In a pan, sautee the shallots in the olive oil until golden. Add the sliced radishes, garlic, beans, and butter. Salt and pepper generously. Sautee unil the beans reach teh desired texture. Test them as you cook! I like mine weel-done but with a light cunch left in them. Remove from heat, toss with dill and vinaigrette. (Or serve vinaigrette separately.) Serve hot or cold.
