This week, WwDH made a side dish, selected by Kayte, Pine Nut Brown Butter with Steamed Green Beans. This comes from the book Modern Classics 1 by Donna Hay and is found on page 86,
I think that Donna has a photo with each recipe which is a plus, as far as I am concerned. I guess, it gives me a feeling of confidence that I did something according to the recipe.
Although, when you see the photo, on the bottom of the page, you will doubt it is the same dish. I made a small sampling of this dish and could not find a serving piece small enough, so I did second best and kind of crammed the beans and nuts into a very small baking dish. See below.
I added a little garlic to this, enough that my husband tasted it. Rarely, does he pick up on the garlic taste.
One other change was that when I asked a loving husband to pick up the green beans, he came home with frozen beans. They worked well and I happen to like them better than fresh but it was different from the original recipe.
This is an excellent side dish, goes with almost everything and is easy to make. It took minutes to cook and put together. I call it a success. Thanks Kayte.
What did Gaye, Margaret, and Kayte make? Go on over and check it out.
