If you’ve been to our market, you know we regularly have the same produce every day. Tomatoes, Romaine, Avocadoes, Apples and Pears. Green beans are also another item which is always readily available. Sometimes we get lucky and we find Pole beans. But mostly you can always count on us having green beans.
That’s why when these Yellow Wax Beans showed up everyone got excited! First question is always, how do they taste?
I can tell you I was curious myself. I grabbed a couple and started snacking. Yep, they taste the same as the green ones. I had to immediately google them for more info. Did you know that yellow wax beans are high in Vitamin C, Folate, and Vitamin K? I did not. They are also high in Potassium, Copper, Manganese and Iron. Who knew!
Next question, is always how do you cook them? These yellow wax beans can be prepared the same way you would prepare green beans: steam, sauteed or boiled.
Here are some recipes I found:
- Yellow Wax Beans with Toasted Almonds Salad
- Pickled Yellow Wax Beans
- Green Bean, Yellow Bean and Cherry Tomato Salad
- Zucchini with Yellow Wax Beans
- Five Bean Picnic Salad
I think I’ll be grabbing some of those yellow wax beans today and giving the Five Bean Picnic Salad a try. How about you? Have you ever had these yellow beauties?
