Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I didn’t make anything Irish this weekend, but this recipe is green so that counts, right?
Here’s a quick easy recipe I just tried out for green beans. I don’t usually buy green beans because I don’t know what to do with them, but now I’ve got a new recipe to add to my veggie rotations. I really enjoyed the balsamic glaze on these green beans, as well as the goat cheese topping. Can we just put goat cheese on everything? It’s so good.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: Serves 4-6
- 1 pound green beans
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 4 oz goat cheese
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
- While the water is heating up, rinse the green beans and trim the ends.
- When the water is boiling, add the green beans and let boil for 8-10 minutes.
- While the beans are boiling, slice the onion into half-moons. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet and sauté the onions for ~15 minutes over low-medium heat, until caramelized.
- Drain the green beans and rinse in cold water.
- When the onions are caramelized, add 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon sugar to the pan. Bring to a simmer over high heat, then reduce heat to low and let the liquid thicken to a glaze.
- Place the green beans in a serving dish and pour the glaze plus onions over them.
- Top with crumbled goat cheese.
