Beans Overload


No time for in depth blogging today, so here is a picture of another meal from last weekend. On the left we've got a Cook's Illustrated recipe (subscription required) for Sautéed Green Beans with Smoked Paprika and Almonds. Nothing exciting, but it came out pretty well. On the right is Giant Chipotle White Beans from 101 Cookbooks... except the beans are decidedly not giant. Anna wanted to go with the giant lima beans but, not being a fan, I vetoed that craziness... so we were stuck with your basic great northerns. The flavors were quite nice, but we both thought it could stand to be significantly saucier... if I made it again I'd probably double the sauce.
