fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
Bosc pears, cored and cut into quarters
salt and pepper to taste
be very sure to follow the directions on the bacon, makes a big difference
Very tasty! I acquired a bunch of free Bosc pears and had to figure out how to incorporate them into my dinner before they went bad. I cooked up some tofu to a bacon-like consistency and flavor and skipped boiling it with the green beans and pears. I'm sure it's even tastier as properly prepared.
What a delightful dish. It was the hit of my Sunday night dinner. There is not a single thing I would change.
Great alternative to boring green bean dishes.
