Green bean salad with mustard seeds and tarragon

Did you catch Jess’s super healthy Veggie Pho recipe yesterday? While we’re on the subject of holiday detox, thought I’d share a few of my fave recipes from my current cookbook of choice, Plenty: Vibrant Recipes from London’s Ottolenghi. I’m trying to eat less meat in 2012, and the 120 vegetarian recipes in the book are chock full of unexpected flavor combinations that will be just as appealing to carnivores. Since Ottolenghi is not a vegetarian, he writes from an innovative perspective that’s all about appreciating the incredible fresh flavors and seasonality of vegetables and grains. The image above shows the green bean salad with mustard seeds and tarragon…keep reading for a few other completely mouthwatering images from the book.
