This concoction is my all time favourite snack and side dish next to cheesy crispy kale. I’m not going to say any more about my love for these beans than that, you simply need to try them.
Although I thought I’d share some info on benefits of eating green beans because often I look these things up and I like to share my finds, (information was found here):
High dietary fibre content.
Good source of vitamin A and antioxidants all protecting you from free radicals which can have a negative impact on cells.
Contains the carotenoid zea-xanthin which has a positive impact on eye health.
Provide good amounts of vitamin B-6 and thiamin (B-1) as well as C.
They are also a good source of minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium and manganese.
PORTIONS: 2-4 as a side dish / TIME: 15 min
225g fine green beans
Rind and juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp liquid aminos/tamari
2 garlic cloves, minced
Black pepper to taste
Clean the beans and remove the end which attached to the stalk.
Place in a pot and cover with water, bring to a boil and then simmer until tender (or steam), takes roughly 5 min after boiling.
Mince garlic into a cup and mix with the rest of the ingredients.
Drain and rinse tender green beans and place in a mixing bowl.
Pour marinade on top and mix.
