Green Beans Wrapped In Courgette Ribbons with Pesto

courgettes, green beans and pesto

Here's a quick and nice way to dress up some plain steamed veggies. I've used some courgettes sliced thinly into ribbons using a vegetable peeler.
Drizzle with a tiny bit of oil and toss them lightly in a pan on medium heat for no more than 10 seconds; just enough to soften them, so they are slightly more 'rollable'.

Take some green beans, trim the ends and steam until tender but still crunchy. Usually only takes a minute or two. Alternative you can blanch them for 15 seconds in boiling water, or just have them raw.

Then, gather 4 - 5 beans and wrap a courgette ribbon around. Lay on a serving plate and drizzle with some pesto. Here's a pesto recipe I made just recently.

Green, crunchy, quick and tasty!

  3. Oh, how pretty! This would be a good way to present asparagus, too, I think.

  4. Loving this recipe so much. I made it at my grandma’s house. The combination of recipes goes well with each other and the taste is certainly admirable. www.gourmandia.ca and www.coffeefashion .com also have interesting recipes that you’ll surely want to try!
