Garlic string beans – Dumpling Empire

Garlic string beans - Dumpling Empire
Ugh, these tasted fine but they were pretty greasy and quickly became limp and sad. Perhaps they were overcooked (as evidenced by their heavily blistered skin) or perhaps they got overly steamed during transport, but I didn’t enjoy them either way. That makes me sad because I love string beans! $6.95

  1. I love how sculptural and perfect that agave is. Very few plants like that are hardy in zone 4b, so what’s probably common elsewhere seems exotic to me. (i’m also scoping out your archives and loving the food from Paris. Nice Blog!)
