Hello, all! It’s been a busy last few weeks. I finished my student teaching experience and got a job as a long-term sub position as a 5th grade science and social studies teacher. Friday night I collapsed in to bed and slept for a full 12 hours… I haven’t slept that much since high school!
Anyway, really exciting news! I GOT MY PLACEMENT FOR TEACHING IN THAILAND! I’ll be teaching K-2 grade English in Chonburi City, which is a coastal city located right on the Gulf of Thailand! I can’t even describe how excited I am! More on this to come soon.
In the meantime, a simple, yet delicious recipe. I always forget how good food tastes when roasted. Need to remember to roast more often… Anyway, the seasoning makes this an awesome side dish. Add in the crunch of the cashews, and you’re in heaven.
Oven Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms with Cashews
12 oz of green beans, washed and trimmed
2 large portobello mushrooms, cubed
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp dried sage
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
pepper, to taste
2 tbsp avocado oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 handful of cashews
Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, combine and mix all of the ingredients. Transfer to a roasting pan and place in the oven for 20 minutes. Afterwards, sprinkle with cashews and serve.
