Oops… I kind of got behind on the green bean harvest. You know, those suckers are GREEN. And the leaves are GREEN. So they tend to blend in and not scream “pick us!” so…. I didn’t.

Until now.

home grown green beans - too big

Way too huge for normal cooking and eating… but I found something to do with them. (Actually, it was the Guy’s idea. And it was a good one that rocked.) I’ll share my “something to do with them” another day. For now, I want to know… what do you do with your green beans if you accidentally let them get way too gigantic?

I mean, ridiculously big? Then what?

Wow…those are really big…lucky you. I love beans because of their meaty texture plus they taste good with anything you add with them.

OK
so it is now Sept and I have the ginormous bean syndrome. What was it that you did with your beans?

I like to pull them through a bean slicer to make a sort green bean spaghetti. Delicious!

I like to do a simmer of the bigger green beans and tomatoes. Just toss the beans whole (trimmed) in the pan on the stove with chopped tomatoes and basil, and the beans cook in the sauce/juice of the tomatoes. I let it go for longer than I’d do with the young/smaller beans, and the tomatoes help break down the beans. By the time the tomatoes are “mushy” and start to thicken, the beans should be really tender and delicious.
