Green Beans & Cherry Tomatoes from Gastrokid Cookbook (GIVEAWAY!)
I am so excited to tell you that I am hosting a giveaway for the fabulous cookbook, The Gastrokid Cookbook: Feeding a Foodie Family in a Fast-Food World! Read through to the end of this post for details on how to enter my giveaway!
Tonight, I decided to try another recipe from the Gastrokid Cookbook in honor of this giveaway. I had picked up some French green beans last weekend from Costco and some beautiful grape tomatoes from the farmer's market. So, the obvious choice was to make Green Beans & Cherry Tomatoes.
This was another simple recipe that I won't need a recipe to make again. The ingredients are simple: green beans, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, and lemon juice. This is a wonderful way to enjoy fresh green beans this time of year. They maintain their crisp crunch by blanching them for just a few minutes. Once that is done, toss them with the halved cherry tomatoes and drizzle a bit of olive oil over the top and finish with a squeeze of lemon juice.
This is such a gorgeous side dish, it would be a nice addition to any potluck or barbeque over the warm summer months. As you can see from this post and my last one (HERE), this cookbook is filled with simple recipes that busy parents can make on a weeknight. This cookbook makes getting a healthy dinner on the table so easy that family dinner can happen several times a week.
