The one I told you about last week that we’ve been making a ton. It happened totally by accident, I buy the really thin haricots vert at Trader Joe’s at least every other week, and one night they were the veg of choice to go with whatever carb and protein of choice were happening. I knew I wanted to add something pickly with something creamy because I think those two things just contrast so well and make boring side dishes exciting.
And these are, like, totes exciting for green beans.
I use pickled cherry peppers from TJ’s too, but any kind of pickly pepper that you like will work great! Smoked paprika adds a ton of flavor almost in a grilled or bacon-y way, and I’ve never had anyone, even vegetarians, complain that things taste kind of like bacon. It’s a really great spice to keep on hand to meat-up meat-free dishes!
