July 21, 2022


This is a perfect one-pan Blue Zones Kitchen meal using pantry staples like chickpeas and potatoes (swap the green beans for frozen if necessary) inspired by the flavors of Loma Linda, California.

In this deceptively simple recipe, the mustard dressing brightens all the flavors of this dish to create a spectacular one-pan meal. With beans, greens, and potatoes, it combines many of the most important staple foods from blue zones hot spots.
