EAT THOSE GREEN BEANS & CARROTS!
GREEN BEANS & CARROTS WITH CARAMELIZED SHALLOTS (adapted from Martha Stewart Everyday Food)
Gluten Free, Vegan, Farmer’s Market Friendly
The recipe is from Martha Stewart and is super easy to make, but no one will know that based on the taste.
INGREDIENTS: 3 tablespoons vegan Earth Balance butter, 6 shallots, peeled and thinly sliced into rings, coarse salt and ground pepper, 1 pound green beans, trimmed, 3 large carrots julienne cut.
In a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, melt 2 tablespoons of vegan butter over medium heat; swirl to coat bottom of pan. Add shallots; cover. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 25 minutes or longer. Set aside. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook green beans and carrots until fork-tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain; return to pot. Toss with remaining tablespoon vegan butter. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer green beans and carrots to a serving dish; top with caramelized shallots.
My oldest son says this is most “fantabulous” as quoted from one of his favorite authors, Roald Dahl. And it was a hit at our family Labor Day dinner Sunday. I even made them again on Monday evening for dinner alongside our fried green tomato sandwiches (recipe will be on the blog soon) ! It just may end up your go to vegetable side dish too!
