Yard Long Beans

Yard Long BeansDeloris has been bringing yard long beans to the last three markets and have been very popular with our customers. I’m adding another photo of what they look like at the market to get a visual sense of how they are displayed. You can see them on the right side. They are a show stopper, and the taste is excellent. Another creation from Chef Marta for you to enjoy.IMG_0699

 These beans are stringless, tender and mild and do not require much cooking or seasoning to make them tasty. You can do just about anything you would do with regular string beans, except the cooking time will be less because you can serve them al dente and keep some crunch. 1 pound will serve about 4 people.
Ingredients:
1 lb yard-ling beans
2 T Olive oil or vegetable oil
1 large or 2 small cloves of garlic, chopped fine
½ t chili flakes
½ t salt
½ t sugar (keeps the bright green color and enhances the beany flavor)3 T water
Directions:
1) Wash the beans, cut the ends off, and cut into bite-sized lengths.
