First up, this quick (yet so pretty!) veggie side of Caprese salad and lightly roasted green beans. The genesis of this was my not having bought as many fresh green beans as I thought...and then needing to 'stretch' the veggie component of our meal further. So I noticed some ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and of course my flourishing basil window...and Caprese salad (which is just a combination of those three things plus balsamic vinegar and perhaps olive oil) sprang to mind.
|My spices that I struggle to keep alive!|
In the meantime, I began to arrange my Caprese stacks; slice of tomato, then a basil leaf (no need to tear/chop them and oh yeah, NO jar basil allowed for this!), then the slice of fresh mozzarella. Cover with drizzled balsamic and fresh cracked pepper.
Arrange artfully and enjoy!
