When somebody offers me fruit or veggies from his garden, I immediately try to think ways to use them. For example a few days ago our neighbour Penny gave us grapes and green beans. We ate most of the grapes and with the rest I made this delicious appetizer! I didn’t want to cook the beans as a salad or braised with tomato as we use to here in Greece. I wanted to develop a new recipe. This is how I came up with the idea of makin a green bean augratin. Of course it is vegan, light and healthy but most of all it is absolutely mouthwatering! Even my husband enjoed this dish although he is not a green bean fan!  I paired them with caramelized onions, a rich herbed soy cream and an almond crust and the result was a tasteful dish! You need to try this one people! If you do, let me know what you think! I would also like to underline that the looks of this dish is not as good as its taste! So never judge a book by its cover! You see some dishes are not photogenic at all…

Happy weekend everyone!
