  • 1 pound green beans
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/2 pound radishes, stem removed and quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. When bubbling toss in the green beans for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove and place in ice water to quickly cool. Drain thoroughly.
  2. Pour the oil into a skillet and turn the heat to medium. When hot, dump in the radishes, green beans, garlic, and chili flakes. Cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables have softened.
  3. Add the honey and stir to coat the vegetables. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. They should just start to caramelize.
  4. Transfer to a large bowl and then season with salt and pepper.
