RECIPE: crockpot green beans and new potatoes
This is sooooo good and easy (and green beans were not mushy!).
Add to crockpot -
-fresh green beans (3 good sized handfuls), ends chopped off
-new/red potatoes ( 3 medium sized), cut into chunks and spread on top of beans
-sliced almonds (about 1 cup), sprinkled on top
-handful of fresh parsley, minced, sprinkled on top
-1 jalapeno (large fresh), minced, sprinkled on top
-2-3 cloves garlic, minced
-yellow onion (large), cut into chunks, sprinkled
-1 teaspoon curry powder, sprinkled
-1 teaspoon kosher salt, sprinkled
-black pepper, cracked on top (1 tsp or so)
-2 tablespoons olive oil. dribbled over mixture
-1 tablespoon butter, cut into little pieces and dabbed around on top
cook on high for one hour,
move to low for 4 hours
(probably could forget the high and just cook on low for 6 to 8 hours).
optional: I didn't use either of these options but thought I'd suggest in case you want more protein: add 30 minutes before serving either tofu crumbles or chopped hard boiled eggs and stir
note: the curry powder really doesn't give it an obvious curry taste, think the slow cooking kind of mellows it but I think it does give it a nice flavor anyway but probably would still be good without the curry for those who are wary of it.
