Green Bean and Squash Medley

Delicious and nutritious little side dish we have here, and it is so very simple to make! We made a version like this at our Texas Tastes Central Market Cooking School, it was nice to recreate on our own.

Grocery List:
  • 1/4 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 yellow squash, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Take your beautiful stoplight color veggies and throw them in a skillet with olive oil. Let cook and add green beans. I actually used some pre-cooked green beans we had left over from Eatzi's a few days ago, so just threw them in. Cook for about 10 minutes on medium heat, until all are soft.

Add the garlic, cooking until fragrant. Add a big pinch of parsley then season with salt and pepper to your liking!
check out this fun new toy! Great for getting things off your cutting board and into a pot, bowl, skillet, etc. Bought it at Central Market but you can find it here.

Served with chipotle cheddar polenta and ancho adobo flank steak.
