Summer Savory and Garlic Green Beans are the best way to enjoy fresh from the garden green beans.
For the last few years, I’ve planted a garden each Spring. I’ve watered, weeded and harvested. I’ve picked different vegetables and herbs almost every year to try to get a feel for what we use most.
Aside from tomatoes and basil. One must always have tomatoes and basil in a summer garden.
This summer, in my herb box, I planted Summer Savory and I’ve come to one conclusion: One must always have summer savory in their summer garden.
I have a few favorite herbs that I like to use in the kitchen. I adore basil. And oregano. Dill. And Rosemary. Summer savory is one that I had not heard much about until I happened to try it a couple of years ago. If you have never tried it, it has a peppery-thyme type flavor. I simply adore it.
When I first discovered it, I turned to The Flavor Bible to see what it goes best with. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. If you love to cook and do not have The Flavor Bible. GO. GET. IT. PRONTO. Best kitchen book ever. I have not been paid in anyway to say that. I seriously could not live without that book in my kitchen.
The Flavor Bible told me that summer savory goes excellent with green beans so I gave it a shot and these Summer Savory and Garlic Green Beans were born.
Just as it always has been for me, the Flavor Bible was right. These Summer Savory and Garlic Green Beans are my new favorite way to eat green beens. They will be on my table for the rest of summer and I am betting they will make an appearance on my holiday tables too.
