Green Beans and Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients, Serves 4:
  • 1/2 lb Green beans (ends snipped)
  • 1/2 lb Brussels Sprouts (stem cut off and cut in half or thirds length-wise)
  • 3 T EVO
  • 1 t Red pepper flakes
  • 2 T Mint, rough chopped
  • 2 T Cilantro, rough chopped
  • 1 Garlic clove thinly sliced
  • 1/2 C water

While you might not think of putting these two greens together, the combination is magical! First blanch the green beans in boiling water for about 1 -2 minutes.  Drain and rinse with cold water.  Set aside.

In large pot, heat EVO on medium heat.  Add red pepper flakes and garlic slices and stir until garlic is slightly brown.  Add brussels sprouts and cook on medium low for approximately 4 minutes, stirring to make sure they don't burn.  There should be a slight browning to them. 

Add green beans and water and stir over heat for 2 minutes.  Add mint and cilantro and mix.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Spoon into presentation dish and serve.
