The first part of this post will not be related to green beans. Instead, I am going to rant about cauliflower. Cauliflower has been quite the rave lately and I just don’t get it. I’ve seen it in pizza crust, cheese sauces, and as rice. I did try the cauliflower rice and it was just ok to me. My house ended up stinking of cauliflower for quite a while. Cauliflower pizza crust just sounds disgusting to me. Even though it is supposed to be healthier than regular pizza crust, I’d rather have pizza crust. Why? Because it TASTES better than cauliflower ever will. One thing is for sure that you will never see anything cauliflower related on this website. My favorite vegetable is probably broccoli. I’m going to create a broccoli pizza crust and that will be the next huge thing you’ll see all over pinterest, just you wait!
Green beans are probably my second favorite vegetable next to broccoli. I like the French Style canned and I prefer the fresh over frozen green beans. It would be rather hard to wrap some bacon around either frozen or canned green beans. With fresh green beans, you boil them in water for a bit until they turn that bright green color and then shock them in ice to stop the cooking. I then wrapped the green beans in bacon and placed them in the oven. Super tasty and fun side to make for a dinner party.
1 pound fresh green beans
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Blanch green beans for 3 minutes. Toss them in olive oil and salt and pepper. Bundle about 5 green beans and wrap a piece of bacon around the bundle. Place in a roasting pan and roast for 10 to 15 minutes, until bacon is cooked.
