There is nothing better in the springtime than a delicious pan of green beans and new potatoes. It's the first offerings the garden gives and making a fresh dish from it will fill you up and make your taste buds sing. It's what gives us hope for the season in the garden! You can try different herbs. I love thyme or dill or basil in mine.

This dish is colorful, tasty, healthy and satisfying. It looks like spring time and gives us a lot of hope for what's to come in the season.
