Simple ingredients, easy to make, big on flavor! A great dish to use some of the summer’s bounties.

Vibrant tasty green beans (from 101 Cookbooks)

4 leeks, washed, root end and tops trimmed, sliced lengthwise into quarters and then chopped into 1/2″ segments

1/3 cup fresh dill, well chopped

3/4 lb. green beans, tops and tails trimmed and cut into 1″ segments

extra virgin olive oil

fine grain sea salt

In a large thick-bottomed skillet on medium-high heat, add a generous splash of olive oil, a generous pinch of salt, and the leeks. Stir until the leeks are coated and glossy. Cook, stirring regularly until a lot of the leeks are golden and crispy. Takes about 7 – 10 minutes to brown the leeks. At this point, stir in the dill, and then stir in the green beans. Cook for a couple more minutes – just until the beans brighten up and lose their raw bite. Turn out into a bowl and serve immediately. Serves 4, in our house.
