Fast And Easy
For many people, being depicted as fast and easy presents an unwelcome connotation.
Not for me, I love the description. Is 10 minutes too fast for you?
I’m talking about cooking dinner people! Geez!
Like a respectable lady, I know how to make it fast and super easy, when it comes to whipping up a side dish. Especially for Thanksgiving, this stove-top-only side dish is quite perfect. It only takes 10 minutes, including the measuring, chopping and cooking.

- 3 tbsp olive oil plus more for serving
- 1 pkg (9 oz) frozen artichokes thawed
- 1 pkh (1 lb) trimmed haricots verts green beans
- 2 cloves garlic sliced
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- Zest from 1 lemon
- 2 tbsp capers
- 1 to 2 tsp lemon juice
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add artichokes and cook, without turning, until golden brown on one side, about 4 min. Add beans, garlic and salt on top of artichokes, reduce heat to medium high and cover pan with lid or foil. Steam 3 to 5 min, then gently toss everything together with zest and capers.
Drizzle with lemon juice and extra olive oil to taste before serving.
Have all ingredients "in a row" and this side is table-ready in less than ten minutes. Perfect for a big, busy meal.
