Potato -Green Bean Salad with Lemon and Basil

Recipe Courtesy FatFreeVegan

Ingredients

  • 24 ounces (680 g) small new potatoes
  • 8 ounces (240 g) raw green beans
  • ¼ cup (10 g) basil leaves, packed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 teaspoons light-colored miso (or salt to taste)
  • 1-2 tablespoons water
  • ½ red bell pepper, sliced
  • additional lemon juice, salt, and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Scrub potatoes well and cut into bite-size pieces. (Halve very small potatoes and quarter larger ones.) Bring a pot of water to a boil, add potatoes, and cook until just tender but not falling apart (10-20 minutes, depending on size of potatoes). When done, drain and rinse briefly with cold water.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the green beans. Trim ends and cut beans into bite-sized pieces, 1 to 1 1/2-inches long. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add the green beans, and cook until tender but still bright green and crisp, 5 to 10 minutes. (Or steam in pressure cooker: place in steamer basket over boiling water, seal cooker, and cook for 3 minutes; use quick release to bring pressure down.) Drain water from beans and immediately plunge them into a bath of ice and water to stop cooking.
  3. To make the dressing, place 2 ounces of the cooked potatoes (60 g) into a small food processor or mini blender. Add basil, lemon juice, garlic, miso, and 1 tablespoon water. Process until creamy, scraping down sides and adding more water if necessary. Drain the green beans and add them to the potatoes in a large serving bowl. Gently fold in the dressing. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, to allow flavors to blend.
  4. Before serving, add the sliced red bell pepper. If you like, you can roast the strips of pepper briefly under a broiler to soften and sweeten their flavor. Taste for seasoning and add additional fresh lemon juice, salt, and freshly ground pepper as needed.
