Garlic green beans with almond slivers


Garlic green beans with almonds |

I was going through all my recipes just the other day here on the site. Every once in a while it requires some housekeeping as to categories that might have changed or have been added etc. It’s one of the most used features on the site, the recipe index so it needs to be right. With the move from multi lingual to just the one language a few things went wrong, so I’m still updating that. Some recipes lost their categories, so that is a bit annoying but will be fixed! It’s just takes a bit of time. Anyway, while going through the archive I realised that I have a tiny amount of recipes in the vegetable section. Not because I never eat any vegetables, mind you, but because apparently I do not have very many recipes where veggies are the real star. Time to change that I would guess.

I guess it would be mostly important for me, as I would – arguably – be the person who uses the index the most when searching for something.. 🙂 In any case, it’s not entirely important but what is important is that you might be seeing more delicious vegetable dishes coming by. To start of a very simple one with just four ingredients but very delicious! Also good for a sidedish at christmas dinner for instance (yes, I’m in the Christmas mood already!)
