A healthy side dish you actually want to eat
If you've read or watched Samin Nosrat's Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, you get why this dish works so well.
The salty garlic and herbs pair magically with the acidity from the balsamic vinegar and fat from the olive oil.
This combination of herbs and vinegar makes a sauce resembling a balsamic vinegar that honestly coats just about anything deliciously.
I've used this flavor profile to toss grilled zucchini, eggplant, and asparagus. With these simple but flavorful ingredients, the sky's the limit!
15 minute bonus points
Any recipe that comes together in 30 minute or less gets major bonus points in my book. These Moroccan balsamic green beans take only 15.
The green beans get a quick boiling water bath (also known as blanching) before getting tossed with the garlic, herbs, balsamic vinegar and seasoning.
It all comes together with a few quick flicks of the wrist.
