things that go with green beans

We hadn't even made a dent in the green beans we got last Sunday, so we knew that was going to have to get incorporated into dinner tonight. And thus our inspiration was born: Things That Go With Green Beans. According to the Flavor Bible, green beans go well with shrimp and very salty meats, like bacon. From there it was easy to bring in other ingredients so that in the end we had something with lots of different flavors and textures - no two bites were the same, and that makes for fun eating.

Shrimp seasoned with chili powder, 6 pepper blend and paprika served with bacon over a hash of green beans, potato, onion, garlic and cherry tomatoes.

  1. I love how you used the flavor bible to look that up. I need to break my copy out more often!
