Green beans are readily available all year round. They are a great source of vitamin C, dietary fibre, folate and vitamin K.
Before cooking, snap off the stem end of the vegetable. Some green beans come with this end already detached. If yours still have it, just snap off the very end of the stem of each bean—a great task for any helping hands in the kitchen. Alternatively, you can line up all of the beans on your cutting board and slice off all the stems at once. There's no need to remove the "top" side with the tender shoots, though of course, you can if you prefer.
250grams of beans is a good size serving for 2 people.
