15 minute sautéed pea and green bean salad recipe! Topped with fresh mint and basil. Herby, bright, healthy, and totally delicious!
Hey guys! It’s freakin JUNE!!!
So far, it’s pretty great. All 1 day of it. 🙂 Sooo… Summer… we finally meet. Time for grilling season, tank tops galore, amazing Summer salads like watermelon arugula and strawberry caprese, and also, the arrival of RHUBARBABY!
Lots of surprised emotions in this post!
OK, so Rhubarbaby is coming. Very soon. Like, July soon. I may be freaking out, just a bit.
We’ve got the first of 2 baby showers coming up on Saturday. The first is just the fam. An open house style thang happening in our small Seattle apartment. Lots of distant aunts/uncles/cousins I never see + grand/parent love. Ooohs, aaaahs, lots of love and big time thank yous. The second is the following Saturday, a Baby-q that my awesome lady friends are hosting for me. Good friends, good drinks (ah sigh, I miss those), good tunes, and strawberry shortcake kabobs. YESSSS!
Onto this recipe, eh?
We’ve been getting lucky SO early this year with the CSA bin. Green beans, fresh herbs, even stone fruit already!! I always like to keep the green beans really simple. Just a bit of salt and pepper is all you need. I tossed in some Spring peas and mint and basil with them this go around. They aren’t around long, so enjoy them while they last!
Doesn’t really get any simpler than this. Saute the beans and peas, chop the herbs, toss together. That’s it. SUPER green, super simple, super tasty.
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 lb fresh green beans trimmed
- 1/4 cup fresh or frozen peas thawed if frozen
- Salt and pepper
- 2 tsp minced fresh mint leaves
- 1 Tbsp minced fresh basil leaves
Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add the beans and saute until browned and almost tender, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the peas, and cook until just tender, about 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. Top with mint and basil.
OK guys. Wish me luck with the fam-damily this weekend!
