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.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams.

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
