Green Beans with Spicy Tomato Sauce
Time for the January installation of Random Recipes! This month the amazing Dom of Belleau Kitchen challenged us to try a recipe from a friend’s cookbook, which worked out perfectly. For the past few weeks one of my coworkers had been talking about a new cookbook she got and how I had to give it a try. After telling her about the challenge this month she brought the cookbook right in and started showing me all the recipes from it that I had to try. Up until she brought in Jamie Oliver’s Great Britain cookbook I had no idea what the book would be, and got quite the kick out of it being a British cookbook since the challenge this month was inspired by UK based Dom being in the US visiting family. I had my co-worker pick my recipe and she selected the Green Beans with Spicy Tomato Sauce which I had no objections with, outside of one slight dietary tweak. I also had to figure out what a “knob” of butter was since that is not a standard US measurement.
I’m not sure how knob-like my knob was but this recipe was delicious! Everything came together so quickly and the sauce had just the right amount of oomph. I also have a feeling that this sauce would go great with zucchini or squash – maybe even tofu! I can’t wait to see what other recipes this amazing cookbook has, hopefully my coworker will let me borrow it for a little bit longer.
