Karl’s Harcourt Verts with Pear Sauce

We have had company for the last several days, so I wanted a Sunday dinner that was not hours of preparation.  An American standard meal of meatloaf, potatoes, and green beans seemed like a good idea. Of course, I could not make it that simple I had to get spontaneously creative.

Karl’s Harcourt Vert with Red Bell Pepper

I needed a vegetable to go with the chicken Madeira that I was serving for Jan’s visiting friends. I decided on French green beans, Harcourt vert, that are thinner and more tender than regular American green beans. Plain green beans are a bit boring, so I decided to add more interest with herbs and red bell pepper.

Karl’s Harcourt Vert with Dark Soy Sauce

I needed a vegetable to go with my barbecued tri-tip and mushrooms. I wanted the dish to be Asian, but I did not want to have just a third dish covered in Sichuan pepper sauce. I decided on French green beans, Harcourt vert, that are thinner and more tender than regular American green beans.

Karl’s Mesclun Salad with Lightly Pickled Vegetables

I wanted a salad to go with my bean soupMesclun greens are a combination of baby greens. While these, by themselves, make a perfect acceptable salad it is always better to add a few crunchy veggies for interest. Today, I am using green beans, red radish, and red onion.
