Green beans, fresh and crunchy, healthy and packed with vitamins

Green beans, also known as string beans, are the best-known of the bean family. They’re perfect for a mid-week meal, weekend dinner or even as a snack. In this recipe we will be using green beans to make a soup. It’s delicious and healthy too, and will certainly fulfil your daily recommended intake of vegetables!

Why are green beans so healthy?

Green beans are very healthy, as the phytonutrients are evenly distributed in the bean and the green beans are crammed with a variety of nutrients and many vitamins. A 100 g of green beans is equal to around 20% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C. Moreover beans also contain a lot of fibre, some protein and the amino acid, tryptophan. So this soup is something you simply have to make!
