Green beans are known by many common names, which vary from one region to another: French beans, string beans, snap beans, etc.
They look like vegetables, but they are actually legumes; in fact, they differ from vegetables in that they are much lower in calories and can be eaten whole.
Green beans can be used in many different ways in the kitchen, and some pairings elevate their flavour and showcase their qualities more than others: for instance, adding mint to green beans provides additional benefits for the digestive system, whereas a sprinkle of lemon juice makes them more effective in combating skin ageing. Another option is to drizzle some olive oil on boiled or steamed green beans, which has an antioxidant effect.
Now all you have to do is enjoy them!
