Green beans can be boiled, steamed, stir-fried, or sautéed. They are great on their own or combined with other vegetables. All beans are a good source of protein, and green beans are also high in potassium.
3 cups of green beans, washed and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 cup each of two kinds of cooked or canned beans (black, navy, garbanzo, lima)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 small red onion, finely chopped (optional)
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 Tablespoon freshly chopped parsley (optional)
