Our Version of Green Beans with Smoked Bacon
-Bacon, cut into half inch pieces
If you've never made green beans before, let me tell you, they're pretty foolproof. Just rinse, snip the ends off, and boil in heavily salted water (with a little olive oil for taste) until tender- approx 3 minutes. Transfer beans to a bowl of ice water to "shock" the hell out of 'em and prevent them from getting mushy. Drain and set aside. Fry up your bacon until it's just about to your liking, but not quite. Drain the grease. Add green beans to the bacon and saute until everything is cooked the way you want it.
I'm sure this recipe will work just as well if you substitute turkey bacon, or even tofu bacon.
And by "I'm sure", I really mean I have no idea because I've never tried it.
