There are a number of different ways to preparegreen beans, including simple cooking methods such as steaming, blanching, or microwaving. The goal when preparing green beans is never to overdo it—cook until they're just tender on the inside but still have a snappy, crunchy bite. Overcooking them will also cause them to lose their beautiful bright green color, which would be a complete tragedy.
Once cooked, there are so many ways to dress up green beans. For the most understated side dish, season them with just salt, pepper, and a touch of lemon zest. We also like to turn the heat up with智利辣椒,spicy mustard, and warm, aromatic spices.
