Green Beans with Radicchio

Source: Everyday Food, June 2007

Ingredients

  • 1 pound green beans, stem ends removed
  • coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small head radicchio (7 to 8 ounces), halved lengthwise, cored, and sliced crosswise 1 inch thick
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced into rings
  • 1 or 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, preferably white

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, combine beans and 1/2 cup water; season with salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high. Cook until water has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add oil, radicchio, and shallot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are crisp-tender and radicchio has wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar, and season with salt and pepper.
