Courtesy of Jen D. over at Butter and Sage, we have a great recipe for spicy Yellow Wax Beans!
Here’s what you need to get started, you’ll have to cruise over to her blog for the rest:
I receive a CSA box every other week and find I am sometimes scrambling to use up all my great vegetables before they go bad. This week was a giant bag of yellow wax beans. How are these different than green string beans you might ask? Well, they aren’t much different but to my taste they have a little more starchy taste as well as missing some of that “green” taste we are all used to. To compensate for slightly less flavor, I introduce my favorite condiment of all time: Crushed Red Peppers! Yes, these are the same peppers you ask for at the pizza parlour to spice up your pie.
2 cups cleaned yellow wax beans
1 clove garlic peeled & smashed
juice from 1/2 a lemon (less if lemon is rather large)
10g olive oil*
S&P to taste

As if the name didn’t get your mouth watering already, how about the full picture below of one of Ryan G’s staple chicken recipes!
Chicken breast is one of the standard go-to protein sources for people trying to eat a more healthy diet and many times people get bored with it over time. I’m looking forward to giving this one a shot and that bed of quinoa makes it even more appealing and versatile. Of course you also have the option of throwing in some veggies instead too.
