green bean delight

let's be honest, the weekend is the time for wineicecreamcheesechocolatedidimentionwine? but by the time monday rolls around i am craving a bowl of veggies so large that it makes people stare. i love this bowl of veggies so much that i didn't even envy the cheesy enchiladas my husband was eating right next to me. fast, light, & healthy - this bowl of beans is the perfect weeknight dinner.

green bean delight

coat a shit-ton of green beans and cherry tomatoes with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. roast at 400 degrees for ~25 minutes, turning halfway through (i like mine roasty).

fill a bowl with an exorbitant amount of roasted green beans and tomatoes (hey, they are veggies) and top with chopped pecans (or walnuts) and a solid drizzle of tahini. 

add a toasted piece of healthy bread (Ezekial sprouted grains) if you just finished spinning for two hours and need to refuel (it happened, i needed carbs and i needed them fast).

curl up on the couch with your veggie bowl and be delighted...
