Serbajadi French Bean - Phaseolus vulgaris L. (Leguminosae)
French Beans, otherwise known as legumes, are fast-growing annuals and produces fine crops of low fibre, tender and delicious pods that are long and slender with kidney-shaped seeds over a long period. The slightly flattened green beans are coarse and strong-flavoured when mature, but delicious when young.
The very young pods can also be eaten whole including the pod. They need minimal cooking time. Older beans can be podded and boiled or steamed for a few minutes. You can leave beans to mature on the plant and then dry them to make a good addition to hearty soups. Steamed tender French beans make a great addition to warm salads, especially if served with creamy cheese. If the tops of the bean plants are in good condition, you can eat these too. A good source of vitamin A, C and E, plus protein and fiber. Never eat beans raw, boil rapidly to retain the flavour and texture.
