This week’s Vegetable Box Feature: Yellow Beans
Did you know?
In 2018, Ontario produced more than 68 million pounds of green and yellow beans. That’s enough to fill the cargo holds of over 1,000 Boeing 747 airplanes.
How to Store Them:
Store fresh yellow beans in the refrigerator in a sealed container, unwashed. Do not snap off the ends and remove the strings until you are ready to use them. Just prior to cooking, rinse and remove tips from stem end.
How to Use Them:
A versatile vegetable that can be prepared in a variety of ways. Yellow beans can be utilized in the same fashion as Green beans and Purple beans. Try them in the microwave, roast them, steam them or stir-fry them. Use them in salads, casseroles, soups, stir fries and various other side dishes. Just like green beans, they taste amazing with a little butter or olive oil, lemon and garlic for a quick and nutritious side dish. They can also be enjoyed raw!
