Green beans are inches long with rounded shape. They are crunchy, low calorie beans that provide many key nutrients. Young and tender green beans are a good source of Vitamin C, dietary fiber, folate and Vitamin K.
Green beans can be used in salads, soups or casseroles, and are also perfect as a simple side dish, served plain or sauteed with garlic in a little olive oil.
Several studies have shown that organic beans offer more nutrition because they are grown in healthier soil and are pesticide free.
