This week’s farm share included some new green beans and beautiful red onions. I combined them for this simple side dish but It could be eaten as a main, especially if you substitute chick peas for the sliced almonds.
- One large red onion
- 2 tbsp butter
- A quart of green beans, nibbed
- Quarter lemon
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- Handful of sliced almonds (or chick peas)
Sauté onions for a few minutes before adding beans. Put a lid on the pan and let steam for another three minutes. Add lemon, maple syrup and salt and pepper to taste.
