This is my new favorite snack!
Lightly blanched, maybe steamed green beans with a dip of some sort.
Guacamole. Dressing. Mustard. Ketchup? Salsa.
In this case the Miso Garlic sauce from an old old old post.
I came across it the other day only to realize it has been pinned over 2,000 times!! What?
All I could think was “I hope it was good!”
So I remade it to make sure.
Relief! It was so good!
How to Blanch/Steam Green Beans
For this snack I used about a cup and a half of green beans. Trim the ends and wash. Cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces for faster cooking. Add to a small saucepan with a little bit less than an inch of water. Turn burner to medium heat and put the lid on the pan. Wait for steam to start coming out and check every minute or so until they are just the right green. Mine was about 3 minutes. The green pops and they are still crunchy in the center. Remove from heat and drain water. Rinse with cold water to cool them down quickly. Serve with Miso Garlic sauce.
If you like raw green beans, that will work too.
Green beans are a great change from celery, carrots, and apples.
Short on time? Buy frozen green beans and before you go to work fill up a 2-cup container. They’ll thaw by the time you’re ready for a snack!
Green beans are a great source of vitamin K, manganese (helps fat and carbohydrate metabolism), fiber, vitamin C, folate, and vitamin b2.
