Thursday’s food:
Spicy Green Beans
Made these last
night with thanks to Rob Feenie.
1 cup green beans,
4 tsp garlic,
2 tsp sunflower
2 tsp sambal oelek
(or to taste … the recipe actually called for 5 tsp!)
4 tsp anchovies,
salt and fresh
ground white pepper
Blanch (I
steamed) the green beans and plunge in ice water.
In a large fry pan,
add oil, garlic and anchovies and pan fry 2mins.
Add green beans and
sambal oelek and pan fry another 3mins or so.
Salt and pepper to
taste and serve!
