Cooked fresh beans

The first time I saw fresh beans was a couple of days ago at a local farm.

I took my kids to a pumpkin patch and while they ran around in the corn maze, I checked out the local produce. I saw these beautiful pods, with white and purple tie-dye-like lines. So pretty! I got so excited, and immediately filled up a bag and cooked up this yummy dish!

Very recommended! If you ever have the chance to buy fresh produce in season, do it! The flavors are absolutely amazing!
