#52 - Green Beans and Red Peppers

There's this restaurant in Downtown Silver Spring called Copper Canyon Grill, and it serves really tasty rotisserie chicken. They also have a green bean and red pepper side dish that we thought we'd give a try at home.

Green Beans and Red Peppers

A Hungry Hundred Original Recipe, Inspired by Copper Canyon Grill
We knew that this recipe was going to need green beans, red pepper, and onions, and besides that we kinda winged it. We saw online that balsamic vinegar would go well with these ingredients, so we threw that in too.
There's not really much to talk about.
All we did was boil the green beans,
Cook the onions and peppers with some garlic,
And then throw them all together.
Oh, and it magically turns out delicious. Green beans are good, red peppers are good, but green beans with red peppers cooked alongside garlic, onions, and olive oil is apparently wonderful.
Next time you need a simple tasty side dish, cook this one up.
  • 1 lb green beans
  • Olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small red pepper, sliced
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Balsamic vinegar
  1. In a small pot, bring salted water to a boil. Add green beans and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. When crisp and tender, remove beans from water and drain well.
  3. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
  4. Add onions, garlic, and pepper, and saute until tender, about 4 minutes.
  5. Add green beans, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
