There's just something about fresh vegetables right from the garden. They always taste a little sweeter, a little crisper and a little brighter ... with summer flavors that burst on your tongue.
Mind you, our scrap of a garden is pretty tiny. There's just enough space for a few tomato plants and the scraggly herbs that I haven't managed to kill QUITE yet (despite some serious neglect). But our local farmers' market is now in full swing, and it's been an amazing place to get everything that we can't grow ourselves.
My latest favorite? Green beans! This summertime staple pairs beautifully with everything from chicken to steak to pasta, and our Bayou Bourbon™ Glaze is a wonderful way to give plain beans some serious sweet and smoky flair.
Plus, you can make them on your stovetop in about 15 minutes. So whether you've got a garden or you've just got a craving to make something fresh and easy, give this one a try tonight!
