So my roommate and I were making dinner a few weeks ago for a little dinner party and she accidentally kept the thin green beans in the oven too long. She didn’t want to serve the but I though they looked pretty good so I tried them - they were amazing and we finished them in about a minute!
So, what she did was stick the green beans on a cookie sheet and drizzled with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and this South African spice we got from Trader Joe’s. We put them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. They came out a little crispy, hence the “chips” and they were delicious!

I found these great tomatoes at Trader Joe’s the other day and I knew I just had to do something with them! While I’m trying to shop mostly at local farmer’s markets, these were just too beautiful to pass up!
So what I did was cleaned out the center of each and stuffed each with ricotta cheese that I had mixed up with some South African spices. Then I placed each in a muffin pan (to keep the shape of each tomato) and baked them at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. They turned out really well and were full of flavor and yumminess! I definitely recommend trying it!
I also used the fresh baby spinach I got to mix with a little light balsamic vinegar for a really light salad - a great match to the roasted tomatoes!

I really wish I had the funds available to participate in this wonderful event called A City Farmer, A Chef, & a Host. However, I thought I’d share with you all anyway! It is a food event in NYC that takes place in various private homes across Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Brox. The cost: $500 a pop so this girl will not be attending on her student budget! Check it out and let me know what you think!
