Mediterranean Inspired Sauce with Green Beans - 2 Ways!
Here's the Sauce Recipe:
6 or 7 Sun Dried Tomatoes (About 1/4 C)
About 8 or 9 Black Olives (About 1/4 C)
Splash of Grapeseed Oil
2 Cloves of Garlic
1/4 tea Oregano
Of course I added about 2 Cups of Green Beans and a small handful of Pine Nuts to this and threw in a few sprinkles of Wildtree's California Garlic Pepper.
This was quite good as a side dish in its own right but I wanted to make it more of a meal and take it for lunch!
I cooked up some Brown Rice and mixed it all together! It made a wonderful flavor combo!
I'm very excited about this sauce! I would have never thought about using the Olives and Sun-Dried Tomatoes as a base for it!
I have to give a 'thumbs up' to the Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen Cookbook for the original idea on the sauce! But...you know me...I don't follow recipes from start to finish so this was tweaked a bit! Tasty, regardless!
