Lunch Box: Make-Ahead Spicy Green Bean Salad with Sesame-Lime Tofu

Suzanne Lehrer Post a comment

Baked tofu won't dry out the next day, and it won't become sad and shriveled like fried tofu can. A trip under the broiler yields a crunchy, chewy crust; here it's bolstered by a thick coating of sesame seeds. A spicy green bean salad makes a straightforward, refreshing accompaniment, and can be mixed and matched with whatever's in your fridge. More

Cherry Tomato, Green Bean, and Wax Bean Salad with Herbed Bread Crumbs from 'Kitchen Garden Cookbook'

Cook the Book Kate Williams Post a comment

Fresh tomato salads are, in my opinion, one of the greatest joys of summer. They're even better when you can use tomatoes you've picked yourself. In her new Kitchen Garden Cookbook, Jeanne Kelley pairs this garden staple with snappy green beans and pale yellow wax beans for a crunchy, colorful twist. A generous shower of herbed bread crumbs adds more texture to the salad, turning it into a dish akin to a light panzanella. More

Dinner Tonight: Tilapia with Toasted Almonds and Green Olives

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

I always cringe before starting a recipe where I have to make sure something adheres to fish. Instead, I took the easy way out and sprinkled on almonds at the end. That way I could focus on making sure they were properly toasted, and not on whether they were sticking to the fish or burning in the pan. More

Dry-Fried Green Beans from 'The Chinese Takeout Cookbook'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 1 comment

Diana Kuan's dry-fried green beans in The Chinese Takeout Cookbook are less embellished than versions seen at Chinese restaurants; she keeps things simple by skipping the ground pork and preserved vegetable that are often included. Instead, the beans are bolstered by minced and browned fresh shiitakes and the requisite Sichuan pepper, chili bean sauce, and dried red chiles. These changes not only make the dish easier to prepare with grocery staples, but they also give the beans themselves a greater chance to shine. More

The Food Lab's Thanksgiving: Green Bean Salad with Pickled Peppers and Anchovy Dressing

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 2 comments

I love a good onion-topped, mushroom-y green bean casserole just as much as the next guy—even more than the next guy if it's 100% homemade from scratch—but most green beans in my home end up in the salad bowl, not the casserole dish. This is why. More

In a Pickle: Spicy Dilly Beans

In a Pickle Marisa McClellan 9 comments

Dilly beans are green beans, suspended in a vinegar-based pickling liquid and seasoned simply with garlic, black peppercorns and either dill heads or seeds. Because beans are sturdy little suckers, they retain their crispness through the boiling water bath process. Even months after canning, dilly beans will be crunchy and intensely flavorful. More
