Boiled green beans with purple potatoes
6 small purple potatoes (about 2 1/2" diameter), halved or quartered
1 lb. green beans (with yellow mixed in, if you wish), ends snapped off
1 Tbsp butter
salt and pepper to taste
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes, cover pot, and let boil until they begin to get tender, but aren't cooked through (10-15 min, depending on the size of your potatoes). Add beans and continue to cook until beans and potatoes are tender (another 5-10 min). Drain and season with butter, salt, and pepper (or your favorite seasonings). Serves 3.
Simple and delicious. This is summer at its finest.
