Quick Roasted Green Beans

Quick Roasted Green Beans

Every year, I fall in love with a new vegetable. Perhaps I am a romantic at heart. It’s possible. Last year, I was fascinated by Brussels sprouts. This year it is green beans. They seem to be a mainstay in every garden. Easy to grow, but no one ever is overly excited about actually eating green beans. Let’s face it, green beans suffer from neglect. They are boiled or steamed. Their lovely green hue drained of its vibrancy. Often never seasoned. Basically, they are an afterthought. Shoved limply into the shadow of whatever main dish holds the spotlight. It’s a tragedy, especially since green beans have serious promise.

Arrival of Autumn’s Jewels – Pomegranate & Asian Pear Salad with Chaat Masala Dressing

Arrival of Autumn’s Jewels – Pomegranate & Asian Pear Salad with Chaat Masala Dressing

Despite the usual hustle bustle – surrounding raising four children, my parents took offbeat pauses to appreciate life with food. It was their way of displaying love. Because of this, every autumn, my siblings and I anticipated the arrival of pomegranates.

Pomegranates were not in vogue. They were unfamiliar, evoking another world, ancient and far away, especially in the small town where we lived. Their exotic appeal made them expensive. That didn’t stop my parents from buying one or two. Generously, they would decline eating any, stating they had many growing up in India and that it was our turn. So sweet.
