Chef: Richard Landau of Vedge in Philadelphia. “Here’s a re-imagined answer to the string bean casserole—ugly, brown, and bubbly with a can of soup for its sauce. This new, light approach features a Spanish crumble called picada. It’s a great seasonal touch and just enough to take French beans over the top, says Landau. Picada, a savory Spanish garnish traditionally made with almonds, can be as thin as tahini paste or as dry as a crumble. If your green beans aren’t perfectly fresh, try blanching them in salted water for 2 minutes before roasting to bring them back to life.
