It's a great side dish and a delicious way to get some veggies in your system. It's also a well-known fact that vegetables cancel out cupcakes :)
Red Potato and Green Bean Saute
1 pound baby red potatoes, halved
1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
1.5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
Bring a large pot of salted water to a oil. Add potatoes and cook until almost tender, about 15 minutes. Add beans and cook until just tender, about 3 minutes. Drain well.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 30 seconds. Add potatoes and beans; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing to coat vegetables with oil, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Toss in basil and serve.
