3. How To Keep Beans Green While Cooking

Green beans are quite a sensitive vegetable.

So that the beans are wonderfully green and not gray on the table, I have summarized the following tips for you:

–> Cooking beans in salted water is better than steaming them.

–> When using later, let the beans cool down in ice water.

–> Heat the beans quickly if necessary.

–> Alternatively, prepare bean vegetables without interruption…

–> By that I mean: Cook the beans until they are al dente, finish preparing the beans, and serve the beans.

Frozen beans are always second choice. If you like fresh beans, you don’t like eating frozen beans.

Put beans in ice water after cooking, that’s what we cooks call blanching.

4. Supplement Bean Vegetables With Potatoes

I would like to tell you a quick idea for the vegetarian kitchen.

Simply add potato cubes to the beans and dinner is quickly prepared.

This works very simply:

Instructions for beans and potatoes

–> Boil water in a saucepan with a lid.

–> Season the water well with salt

–> Peel the potatoes and cut into even cubes.

–> First boil the potatoes in salted water until al dente, then remove and allow to cool.

–> Boil the cleaned beans until soft.

–> Prepare and season the cream sauce.

–> Complete the beans and potatoes in the cream sauce.

–> Freshly roasted cashew nuts taste delicious with it.

–> You can replace the cream with soy cream for a dish without animal products.

–> White truffle oil tastes great with it!
