Today was another beautiful sunny day in Montreal. A wonderful day for a long weekend Monday. One things that I love about summer is that the fruits and vegetables are so much more affordable and local. There's a small outdoor market near my place so this afternoon I walked over and picked up some extra ingredients to make a green bean casserole.
At the market.
This is one of my go-to recipes for whenever I can't think of what else to cook. It's flavourful, healthy, and filling. I like to eat it on rice, pasta, or quinoa, or with some good bread.
