Green beans are an excellent source of dietary fibre, and can be cooked in a variety of different ways. Keep a pack of frozen green beans in your fridge for a quick stir-fry, or even add into your favourite soup for a boost of Vitamin A, B, and an excellent source of Folate.
Below are just a few different ways to steam, bake, puree, or boil green beans for a tasty meal at any time of the day.
Balsamic Green Bean Salad
Whip-up a delicious summer salad with cherry tomatoes, a splash of balsamic vinegar, and white feta for a fresh taste. Boil the green beans under they are tender, then strain and finely chop some delicious cucumber over the top.
Baked Parmesan Green Bean Fries
While this option may not be the healthiest alternative, it’s definitely one to try out! Try a fresh Parmesan cheese if you love it’s distinct taste, and sprinkle with some sea-salt for extra Mediterranean taste.
Shrimp and String Bean Pesto Pasta
Why not add a few chopped string beans into your pasta for taste and texture. Lightly boil the beans so they still hold some of their signature crunch.
Baked Green Bean Fries
Hold back on the calories and serve some green beans for a healthy alternative to traditional potato chips. Bake with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and lightly simmer until they are golden brown in colour.
