Beans and Radishes

About Lemony Green Beans and Radishes

I love the combination of Green Beans and Radishes. In salads, they both add color and crunch. In this recipe, we cook both – but just enough to take the edge off their rawness. The radishes lend an earthy flavor.

I love a unique cooking method. I frequently use this one with vegetables. We’re adding water and oil to the pan with the beans. First, we steam the beans, and then, once the water cooks off, they are sauteed. Sauteeing the beans intensifies their flavor and releases just enough of their moisture to cook them, while still retaining their crisp quality and bright color.

Lemony Green Beans with Herbs is a classic side dish with a twist. It’s fresh, crunchy, and beautiful. Delight your guests with a new recipe!
