Today we received an Amazon Fresh order full of delicious local veggies. We've been making use of the 30-day free trial, and their options for locally-sourced produce. Although there's no way in hell we're going to pay the outrageous membership fee to keep using the service, it's been a nice way to get fresh produce in a neighborhood severely lacking in it. I'm particularly a fan of the CSA box option. I miss being in a CSA so much, and it's a great price for what you get. Today, we got a big bounty of in-season produce: tomatoes, eggplants, chard, and green beans, just to name a few.
With some time on my hands this afternoon, I pulled out this recipe for Red Curry Green Beans from Vegan Richa. I happen to have all of the ingredients, and the multicolored beans made this dish awfully pretty.
The beans turned out perfectly crisp, flavorful, and spicy. I loved it paired with chunks of baked tofu, and topped with peanuts and cilantro, as per Richa's recommendation. Give it try!
