method


For Whipped Coconut Cream: Chilling the coconut milk will cause the cream to solidify. Open the chilled coconut milk, and drain off the liquid. Transfer the cream to a mixing bowl, and whisk with a hand mixer until light and airy. Refrigerate while you prepare the remaining ingredients.

To assemble: spread a layer of whipped coconut cream on each slice of toast. Garnish with sliced figs and apricots. Finish with a sprinkle of torn basil and a drizzle of maple syrup. Enjoy!

 

Marinated Green Beans with Almond Vinaigrette

 

Green almonds are a seasonal spring item, picked months before their shells harden and split to reveal conventional almonds. These fuzzy green pods are entirely edible with soft, jelly-like texture and mild grassy, sweet-tart flavor. During their all-too-brief season, we're eating them right out of hand, shaving them over appetizers, or slicing them thin to toss over salads as we have here in this bright spring recipe.
