Sunny-Side Beans

July/August 2013

Your rating: None Average: 5 (4 votes)

In this lovely vegetarian green bean salad recipe, eggs are baked over a bed of saucy beans in ovenproof bowls or ramekins. (The runny yolk mingles deliciously with the melted butter.) The dish uses a combination of green beans in the pod plus a cup of the beans shelled out—known as “shelly beans”—or baby lima beans or crowder peas. Crowder peas are any variety of field pea, such as a black-eyed pea.

Simple and delicious!

This is a deceptively delicious dish - where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Serve with good, crusty bread for sopping up the juices. Recipe for 4 provided dinner for 2 - with bread and fruit on the side. Will definitely be making this often during fresh bean season!

easy, few ingredients
