Summer is right around the corner, and so is green bean season. Green beans are a good source of fiber, are low in calories, and add color to your plate. Buy green beans that are crisp – they should snap when bent in half. Store them loosely wrapped in plastic in the refrigerator, and use them soon for the freshest flavor. When you’re ready to use the green beans, wash them and cut or snap off the ends. You can put them in soups, stir-fries, and pastas. Steamed green beans also make a healthy and colorful side dish. However you eat them, enjoy the color, fresh taste, and nutrition of green beans this season!
