Olio Nuovo-Drizzled Blistered Green Beans #CulinaryCam #Sponsored

When Anni of The Quail & Olive* sent me home with a bottle of their limited edition Olio Nuovo recently, I knew that I wanted to showcase its grassiness as fresh drizzle on some roasted vegetables or blistered green beans. Those are vegetables side dishes that make an appearance on my table at least a couple of times a week and this oil is a beautiful addition.

And we filmed a clip to share this on our CulinaryCam YouTube channel, so you can watch the process: here or right here...

 

Ingredients serves 4

I decided to use the Quail & Olive Roasted Garlic Olive Oil to add that garlicky bite to the dish. I like using that because it adds the garlic flavor without the risk of burning garlic and making the final dish bitter.

  • 3 Tablespoons Roasted Garlic Olive Oil
  • 1 pound organic green beans, trimmed
  • 1 Tablespoon Olio Nuovo
  • freshly ground salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • freshly grated lemon zest, to taste
  • lemon wedges for serving (optional)
  • Also needed: cast iron skillet (I use an enameled cast iron pan)

Note: if you don't have the oils I mention from The Quail & Olive, you can easily add those flavors with minced garlic and a squeeze of lemon. These oils just make getting those flavors all in one easy step!

Procedure

Pour garlic olive oil in you pan and heat over medium-high heat. When the oil gets hot enough to spatter, add the beans. Let the beans sit and blister for approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Stir and allow to blister for another 1 to 2 minutes. Once the beans are blistered to your liking remove them from the pan.

On a serving platter, drizzle the beans with Olio Nuovo. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately. And, if you like more lemon flavor, serve with lemon wedges and let diners squeeze more lemon juice over their servings.

  1. Back in the before times, I'd go to a chinese buffet and load up on their green beans, cause they were soooo good. Now I can try my hand at making them myself.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
