Haricot Verts Amandine
April 5, 2018
Haricots Verts are simply thin, French, green beans. If you can’t find Haricots Verts in your grocery store, you can use the thinnest green beans you can find. But, you could still call them Haricot Verts, and impress your Easter dinner guests with your cultural culinary vocabulary. Not that that’s something I would ever do. By using the thinner, French version of green beans, the dish is less “woody” and packed with more flavor in each bite.
A TRULY SUPER-FOOD
Haricot Verts are full of nutritional benefits! They’re a rich source of vitamins A, C, and K, folic acid, and fiber. Aside from the many healthy side effects of consuming these vitamins and minerals, they contain a high amount of chlorophyll which may block carcinogenic effects of heterocyclic amines that are generated when grilling meats at a high temperature. The folate in green beans can also help with mental health, as the consumption of folate can prevent an excess of homocysteine. This can interfere with the production of feel-good hormones serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine.
