The name of this light and bright sauce has a Dr. Seuss sort of style, reminiscent of “Green Eggs and Ham.” Well, I don’t think that it will take Sam-I-Am too much pestering to get you and yours to try these – yum!
Green beans in green sauce
1/2 cup packed fresh basil leaves
4 green onions, cleaned and roughly chopped
1/4 cup packed fresh parsley
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon capers (drained)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon anchovy paste
2 garlic cloves
2 pounds fresh green beans, stem end trimmed
Approximately 1 cup water
Steam you green beans in whatever steamer you use. My steamer usually likes to be supplied with about a cup of water, but you know your steamer better! (And if you’re really industrious and a forward-thinker, you could microwave a couple of bags of frozen green beans … way too easy!) Remove steamed green beans to a large bowl.
Blitz the remaining ingredients in your blender and pour over the green beans and toss to combine.
