Your Mamma’s Green Beans Made Even Better!

Your Mamma’s Green Beans Made Even Better!

Here is a delicious and fun way to upgrade your green beans for dinner! Roasted Green Beans with Pomelo are a welcomed addition to your dinner with a bit of sweet pomelo and toasted walnuts to top your dish. I love to blanch the green beans by boiling for a few minutes followed by an ice bath and then popping them in the oven to roast them for about 20 minutes or until they start to wrinkle.

Those greens beans will have a great texture and transform them into a special vegetable to serve with dinner! Top them with fresh elements like pomelo and some toasted walnuts.

Pomelos are a new and exciting addition to our everyday lifestyle this winter! Pomelos are those huge grapefruits that look larger than normal but the inside is full of sweet pomelo! Similar to grapefruit without the sour element. These will be a favorite for those that have always wanted a little sweeter grapefruit! A bit more to peel, as I cut peel with a knife and take out the membrane in between each segment. It is a bit more of a labor of love but the payoff is definitely worth it! Enjoy this recipe for a twist on fresh produce!
