Directions

  1. Fill a saucepan half full with water and bring to a boil. Add the green beans and fennel slices; cook until just beginning to become tender, about 4 minutes. Pour into a colander to drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking process.
  2. Return the empty pan to the stove and set heat to medium. Pour in the olive oil and let it heat for a minute. Return the green beans and fennel to the pan. Season with basil, salt, and pepper; cook and stir until coated and warm. Transfer to a serving dish and toss with feta cheese.

I am giving this recipe 4 stars with the following modifications. 1. you do not need to boil the vegetables just be sure to cut the fennel thin and add it first to be sure it ends up being tender. You can also use frozen beans. 2. Do not use 1/4 cup of oil, I think it was way too much. 3. 2 min prior to turning off the stove add the basil with sun-dried tomatoes in oil. 4. serve and add feta cheese (a little goes a long way) I just used 2tablespoons. Look forward to making this again!

The fennel, basil, and feta combined perfectly in this dish. The market didn't have green beans, so I used swiss chard instead. I sauted the fennel without boiling it, and it still came out nice and tender. I think this would work well with any green veggie--asparagus, spinach, etc.

This recipe was fabulous- can be a side or a full meal. I added two small cloves of fresh garlic and minced onion for added flavor (since I can't have pepper).
