Haricots Verts and Potatoes with Pesto
made it | 0 reviews |
"This is a simple recipe with commonly found ingredients that can be prepared relatively quickly. The pesto adds tons of complex flavor, so minimal seasoning is necessary. I like to serve this as a side with a lean, grilled steak, but would pair well with chicken or pork, too. For a vegan side, choose a pesto without cheese."

- Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until almost fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Drain water and leave potatoes in the warm pot to remove excess water.
- Heat olive oil in a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Saute haricots verts, seasoning with salt, until bright green but still crunchy to the bite, about 5 minutes.
- Add potatoes and pesto to the green beans. Stir to mix and heat throughout. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
- Cook's Note:
- This recipe works with green beans, but is best with haricots verts (I love Trader Joe's® extra fine haricots verts); they're sweet and crunchy and saute to doneness quickly. Also, any kind of potato will be delicious, but Yukon gold potatoes yield a soft consistency that I love.
