As promised, here's some autumn-y inspiration from the archives:

I had no plans whatsoever of posting this recipe. It just happened to be what I fixed for dinner on Sunday evening. I liked it so much that I figured I would share it here in case you might be looking for some green bean inspiration or needing something a little different for dinner.
I actually stumbled across this recipe on Food 52 this weekend right after I had bought a big basket of green beans and some heirloom tomatoes at the farmers market. I knew I needed to cook the green beans sooner rather than later but I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with them. Cue the Masaledar Sem recipe. It's an Indian spiced green bean dish perfect for late summer/early fall. It starts with chile, spices, and a ginger garlic paste. I'm pretty sure anything that starts with a ginger garlic paste will be awesome. In fact, next time I pick up some garlic, I might make some to keep on hand in my fridge or freezer. The smell alone is so amazing that it might temporarily make you forget what you were doing.
