Sometimes simple is best. I have had green bean casseroles, stir fries and beans in sauce. Nothing quite measures up to grilled green beans. The beans sweeten a bit as they char and the flavour intensifies. I decided to add a bit of heat and Berbere Green beans were born. Continue reading Berbere Green Beans

If you cook at the hosts home, you are in their way in their kitchen. I got around it by making a Broccoli Salad. Delicious cold green vegetables to the rescue. Continue reading Broccoli Salad
