Usually I roast them, but this time I wanted to go for something a little different. A little...richer. The kind of dish you could serve up at Thanksgiving. In other words, I was craving comfort food during a Summer heatwave. It happens.
This dish was just the ticket. Vibrant fresh green beans, covered in a simple cream sauce with cheese.
I can see this becoming a Fall favourite in this house.What you'll need:
4 cups Fresh Green Beans, ends trimmed
1/4 tsp Salt
Dash of Cayenne Pepper
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 tsp Butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup Heavy Cream
Sprinkle with salt, cayenne and 1/2 cup of the cheese.
Dot with half of the butter and then pour the cream over top.
Stir to blend the ingredients.
Sprinkle remaining cheese over the green beans and dot with remaining butter.
Serves 6, if you're lucky. These were gone in no time.
