Vore will endure the vegetarian lifestyle. Once a week. And only for one meal.
And so tonight was Meatless Monday black bean burger night, which I’ll note that he actually likes. I made a few standards: homemade buns, Mama Pea’s burgers, and sweet potato coins. But we did venture out just a smidge.
Remember when I told you about my client with the cool campus? I came home with more fresh local produce, this time by way of our new neighbor who works with the US Green Building Council. She brought organic turnips to share, and I was quick to take a handful.
Buttered Green Beans with Roasted Turnips
1 cup turnips, peel and cubed.
1 8 oz haricots verts
1/2 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon Greek seasoning
Kosher salt, to taste
*Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
*Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper, then spray it liberally with olive oil.
*Roast the turnips for 20 minutes.
*Steam the green beans in the microwave. I used a steam-in-bag package and cooked for 2 minutes 30 seconds.
*Combine green beans, turnips, butter and seasonings. Toss to coat.
