For some unknown reason, the grocery store I patronize had bagged veg on the super-cheap, so a snagged a bag. Or two. Or three.
This label looks a bit worse for wear, but the green beans were perfect.
I steamed ’em inna bag, then took some out and put some by for another day. The ones I took out, I tossed in cornstarch (cornflour, to my British-speaking friends) and spices (I used salt and Penzeys Justice, but use what you please).
Meanwhile, I heated some sesame oil in my lovely cast iron skillet. Cooked ’em in that until they were tender-crisp and a wee bit scorchy, how we like ’em. Also: sesame seeds.
I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about a bag of cheap sweet potato cubes. Yay!
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about something cheap that turns out to be wonderful.
