Pan-Roasted Green Beans With Golden Almonds: This simple almond-shallot topping goes with just about any simply cooked vegetable, but it tastes best with green beans. Instead of simply blanching the beans, I char them until they develop a smoky richness.
Bourbon Mushrooms - fresh mushrooms sautéed in butter, bourbon, garlic, parsley and thyme. Ready in under 20 minutes! Great side dish for steaks, pork and chickenX-will try beef broth instead of bourbon
Roasted Vegetables - Dense, low-moisture vegetables (like the roots and squashes in this recipe) need lower heat and more time in the oven than vegetables with more moisture, like eggplant or zucchini.
