Recipe by Drum Beets


Two large handfuls fresh green string beans

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/3 cup firm cow milk feta

Salt, pepper & aleppo chili flakes to taste


1In a large sauté pan, heat one tablespoon olive oil over medium-low heat. Add beans (I left the little stem on, but you could remove them if you prefer). Cook for a few minutes, uncovered, stirring often. Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice and quickly cover with a lid to steam for a minute or two.

2 Toss and return lid to cover and continue to steam over low heat until they reach your desired texture - slightly crisp, yet for tender. Remove cover, and crumble feta over the beans and season to taste. serve warm straight from the pan so that the feta has a chance to warm a bit.

3Optionally, serve with a few wedges of lemon or a sprinkling of lemon zest!
