CARROTS AND GREEN BEANS WITH ROSEMARY, GINGER AND PINE-NUTS

Carrots and Green Beans With Rosmary, Ginger and Pine-nuts

The carrot is an incredibly useful vegetable but usually it is used as a complement and, in my opinion, too rarely it is allowed to shine in its true splendour! Here it has a partner but it is a perfect partner in the sense that the beans don’t take over, they leave space for the carrot to show itself. The same goes for the rosemary and the ginger, these two bring out the loveliness of the carrot – just like real friends. Real friends don’t only think about themselves, they leave space for you too and even help you to shine brighter. Friendship is not always easy but it is a beautiful thing and I know for sure that my life would be so empty without my friends. And let’s face it, life would be empty without carrots too!

I had this with egg noodles but you can just as well serve it as a side dish.
