What do you need now for this vegan green bean side dish? Here is a quick list what we need for these amazing green beans.
You can find the exact quantities in the recipe card below.
Green beans: frozen or fresh
White wine vinegar
Smoked paprika powder
First, dice the shallots finely and fry them with a little water in a saucepan.
Add the beans and simmer the beans with the onions with a little vegetable broth for about 15-20 minutes. The beans are cooked when they are soft, but still dente.
For the sauce, add all the ingredients to a creamy sauce and season with sea salt and pepper.
When the beans are done, you can add the sauce and stir. The side dish does not need to be reheated again. Taste again briefly and serve this warm.
How long do green beans have to cook until they are cooked?
If you cook the green beans instead of steaming, the green beans will take about 10-15 minutes.
Here you can add some soda to the cooking water, so the nice green color of the beans is preserved.
If you steam the green beans, it takes about 20 minutes. You get crisp green beans.
To do this, take a pot of steam and steam the green beans with the lid closed.
The stewing of the green beans takes about 15-20 minutes and is ideal if you stew onions before.
The beans are ready when they are still slightly dente.
Are green beans toxic?
Raw green beans, ie uncooked green beans such as bush beans, contain a toxic protein compound called phasin.
In the human body, this causes the red blood cells stick together. This obstructs the oxygen transport in the blood.
Consequences of this can be headache, nausea, vomiting or even diarrhea. Make sure to cook your green beans!
Can you warm up green beans again?
For one thing, you have to cook green beans completely first, so that you can eat them without danger.
Cooked beans can be easily reheated and you no longer have to worry about toxins once cooked.
Are green beans healthy?
Cooked green beans are very healthy. Not only are they low in calories, they are fat and cholesterol free.
Green beans have many minerals, vitamins and trace elements. In particular, potassium, zinc, magnesium, vitamins C and B, as well as a high fiber content and is a good source of protein.
Thus, green beans are perfect as a soup, side dish or salad. You can integrate green beans in different dishes.
