I know I've said it before...most recently after the Asparagus Parmesan deliciousness, and before that after Broccoli Parmesan, but I LOVE the 5-volume cookbook series I found in Thrift Store for $5. It is so awesome whenever I have a vegetable on-hand to be able to peruse through an entire chapter of recipes highlighting that veggie. This week I wanted to use my 1/2 pound of delicious green beans. And this recipe for Curry Green Beans had a lot to live up to.
We're all huge fans of Chinese Green Beans, but I decided I could try something different and hopefully not cry about not making these beans into Chinese Green Beans. I was pretty worried that I'd cry when I tasted the not-Chinese Green Beans, but these Curry Green Beans turned out excellently. I was completely relieved. I think Chinese Green Beans are still my favorite, but the curry version is a great, delicious change of pace.
