I was asked to prepare a veggie dish for a farewell dinner party. Literally, for a week I thought about what I could prepare that would swoon my meat-eater’s taste buds. I decided upon two dishes: garden squash and fresh cut string beans. Then the ingredients came to me:
2 garlic cloves (diced)
red pepper flakes
the trio (olive oil, salt, pepper)
For the squash:
In a frying pan, sautes garlic, onion and yellow squash in the trio. Season with nutmeg, red pepper, and parsley.
For the string beans:
Remove stems from string bean, and any other inedible ends. Slice leeks and sauté with the trio and garlic. Add string beans, sauté until soft. Add fresh lime.
