When it comes to the holidays, we love a pretty (and obviously yummy) menu that includes plenty of green veggies.
This Festive Holiday Green Beans recipe was sent to us by our Content Manager, Shelley, as it's one of her mom's go-to recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas (or even just a regular 'ol Thursday evening here and there). It's colorful, easy, and only contains a handful of ingredients, so is one of our new faves and something you'll find on our Thanksgiving menu this year. We hope you'll make it with us!
Festive Holiday Green Beans
- 1lb. fresh haricots verts (thin French green beans) or other green beans, trimmed and rinsed
- 2 tablespoons grass-fed butter (we love Maple Hill)
- 5 strips pasture-raised, no sugar added/paleo bacon, cooked crispy and chopped into little pieces
- 1/2 cup organic red bell pepper, sliced thin (julienne)
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
- 1/2 teaspoon herbs de provence
- 3 tablespoons dry sherry (or 1/2-1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar with the mother like Bragg's)
- salt and pepper to taste
- Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil
- Add rinsed and trimmed green beans and cook until tender (about 3-5 minutes)
- Drain green beans in a strainer and set aside
- Turn your burner to medium heat, and using the same (drained) pan, add your butter and melt it
- Add cooked green beans, cooked bacon, toasted almonds, sliced red pepper, and herbs to the pot with the melted butter
- Cook for about 5 minutes, then add the sherry and cook a few minutes more
- Add salt and pepper to taste
- Serve and enjoy!
