It seems like so many people are going out of their way to impress these days. The pressure to style a dinner plate into something Instagram-worthy puts the average and ordinary dishes on the back burner. Why have hotdogs when you can create a masterpiece and then snap it with a beautiful filter for the whole world to admire?
If you’re like me, I do enjoy those beautiful food photos that many are sharing. I just think that it is okay to take the simplest of ingredients and marry it with the right simplest of ingredients to make it pop. It doesn’t have to be fancy.
These buttered green beans are simple on purpose. Freshly picked, lightly steamed and then lovingly tossed in grass-fed butter… it doesn’t get much better than that. Add freshly chopped Italian parsley and a hefty dash of apple vinegar to bring out the brightness and heighten the sweetness.
It doesn’t get much better than that, indeed.
