Sauteed fresh green beans topped with crispy breadcrumbs flavored with lemon zest and chorizo.
Don’t even think about green bean casserole. Forget it, banish it from your mind. One bite of my Sautéed Green Beans with Lemony Chorizo Breadcrumbs and you will never ever want green bean casserole again.These are fresh, crispy and “chorizo-ey” good. It’s amazing what a few browned bits of meaty deliciousness can do for green beans. They can even make a green bean hating person, like my husband, give it a try, and say “not too bad”. That is huge! I mean really huge. He usually won’t even put a green bean on his plate let alone in his mouth.
My poor hubby physically shivers at the thought of green beans. It is so funny. Me, being the supportive wife, always laughs like crazy when he does. It’s a green bean, it’s not a monster or something that is going to kill you. He may be a grown man; but give him a green bean and he is back to a little boy not wanting to eat his veggies. Needless to say, we only have green beans when he is not home for dinner.
I could eat green beans this way everyday. I especially love the haricot vert beans. I am so happy I can find them regularly in my local grocery store now. I’m thinking I might be able to turn my hubby into a green bean lover with this recipe. Don’t tell him. I’m going to work on it.
