Green Beans with a Red Pepper Sause

I came up with this concoction of red pepper pesto sauce mixed up with some cooked green beans to use up a few veggies that were on their last legs. The crunch of the walnuts makes for an added bonus of texture and taste.

Serves 2


  • 1 cup greens beans , blanched or steamed

  • 3–4 ounces walnuts (reserve half for garnish)

  • 1 red pepper, seeded and chopped into chunks

  • 2 scallions, cut into thirds

  • Juice of half a lemon

  • ¼ cup cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • ¼–½ cup cilantro

  • 1 garlic clove

  • Chili flakes

  • ¼–½ teaspoon sea salt

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


Place all ingredients except for green beans in a blender or small food processor and blend well. Mix ¼ cup of the red pepper pesto with cooked greens beans. Top with a dollop of pesto and some more walnuts.
