Chef John’s Rocket Beans

In this video, you’ll see how to make butter beans with arugula and bacon. You’ll simply sauté the beans with chopped bacon, garlic, and arugula (aka, rocket greens). Then give it a squeeze of lemon juice to balance and complement the richness of the bacon. That's it, you're done! The secret is to give the arugula just a quick sauté so the spicy greens don’t lose their bright color and fresh flavor. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Rocket Beans. Such a rustic, satisfying side dish that’s incredibly easy and fast to prepare, try it beside roasted or grilled meats.

When I saw ROCKET beans I thought of my recipe. The 'Rocket' comes from tomorrow AM, as you will be jet-propelled for most of the morning.

Hmmm, must try this!! I've been trying to add arugula to my salads but I'm not crazy about the flavour by itself. This looks like a good recipe :)
