Green beans, despite their satisfying crunch and verdant, vegetal flavor, often go unappreciated, regaled to a collection of sides without ever receiving the spotlight. But this recipe just might change all that.

From celebrity chef Jose Garces, this dish tosses crisp green beans with roasted red peppers, creamy queso fresco, and sweet shallots, then douses them in a zesty honey-lime-garlic dressing. Just before serving, you'll finish them off with warm sunnyside-up eggs, chile powder, and more cheese—this time cotija. The result is super-bright, super-umami, and so very worthy of being the centerpiece of your meal, whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
