Cooking and green beans

I’ve never cooked anything new, except for a green bean salad that left everyone in awe. New cuisine was nothing on the plate, everything in the bill! (Paul Bocuse)

And these green beans… it’s the Indian dish Poriyal! Diced green beans and shredded coconut fried in oil with chilies and mustard seeds… It has a wonderfully spicy kick! (Yuto Tsukuda)

My favorite meal is I’ll make like a three-bean soup and I freeze half of it. But I’m also a big fan of meat alternatives, so I can still have my chicken and mashed potatoes and green beans, but I just have the chicken from a plant-based thing. (Kathy Freston)

Food and green beans

“Meat loaf with mashed potatoes and green beans.” I leave it at that, neglecting the mention that his meat loaf features ground veal and pork and is wrapped in caul fat and basted with a homemade fig barbecue sauce, that the potatoes are more of a classic Joel Robuchon pommes puree of such buttery silkiness that you want to bathe in them, and that the green beans are blistered and charred in caramelized fish sauce with lime. (Stacey Ballis)

Gardening and green beans

Weather means more when you have a garden. There’s nothing like listening to a shower and thinking how it is soaking in around your green beans. (Marcelene Cox)

I grow green beans in my garden. The one thing I know about harvesting them is that you need to train your eyes to see the beans. At first it all looks like leaves, until you see one bean and then another and another. If you want clarity, too, you have to look hard. You have to look under things and look from different angles. You’ll see what you need to when you do that. A hundred beans, suddenly. (Deb Caletti)

I have a house in the south of France and I have a small garden. My name is Dujardin – from the garden. I grow carrots, peppers, strawberries, green beans… But there are lots of wild boars all around and they steal the food. (Jean Dujardin)

If ‘heartache’ sounds exaggerated then surely you have never gone to your garden one rare morning in June to find that the frost, without any perceptible motive, any hope of personal gain, has quietly killed your strawberry blossoms, tomatoes, lima and green beans, corn, squash, cucumbers. A brilliant sun is now smiling at this disaster… (Ruth Stout)

Quotes about gardening

Women and green beans

“Oh, please! I just can’t bear to cut green beans,” wailed Jane. “I must find something more… well… more interesting.” (Mary Lamers)

It would be so much better if we could share our insecurity, if we could all venture inside ourselves and realize that green beans and vitamin C, however much they nurture us, cannot save lives, or sustain our souls. (Muriel Barbery)

Thanksgiving and green beans

We have had the exact same meal for Thanksgiving and Christmas since I can ever remember, and it’s so simple. It’s just turkey and mashed potatoes and green beans and stuffing. Just the basics, but it’s so good. (Brandi Cyrus)

My most memorable meal is every Thanksgiving. I love the food: The turkey and stuffing; the sweet potatoes and rice, which come from my mother’s Southern heritage; the mashed potatoes, which come from my wife’s Midwestern roots; the Campbell’s green bean casserole; and of course, pumpkin pie. (Douglas Conant)

Most people think to make green bean casserole around Thanksgiving and Christmas, but honestly, I make this dish more during the summer, when green beans can be found fresh at the market. I think it is the perfect meal when served with crusty bread, a bountiful salad, and a cup or two of wine. (Damaris Phillips)

Salad and green beans

Salad of Beans. Put in a bowl three pints of cold boiled string-beans (which cut in pieces about an inch long) and an onion cut in very thin slices; add two tablespoonfuls of chopped parsley, six tablespoonfuls of oil, two of vinegar, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix all well together, and serve… White beans and green beans may also be mixed together in a salad. (Pierre Caron)

Vegetables cooked for salads should always be on the crisp side, like those trays of zucchini and slender green beans and cauliflowerets in every trattoria in Venice, in the days when the Italians could eat correctly. You used to choose the things you wanted: there were tiny potatoes in their skins, remember, and artichokes boiled in olive oil, as big as your thumb, and much tenderer…and then the waiter would throw them all into an ugly white bowl and splash a little oil and vinegar over them, and you would have a salad as fresh and tonic to your several senses as La Primavera. (M.F.K. Fisher)

Daddy Blake told the children that beans are ready to eat sometimes within six weeks after the seeds are planted. The beans are not ripe, of course, and some are green, while others are yellow, or wax beans. Inside the pods, which are almost like peas, are small green beans. (Howard R. Garis)

String Beans.—String beans—green beans with pod—contain a large amount of water, 85 to 88 per cent. The dry matter is rich in protein, nearly 20 per cent… String beans are valuable both for the nutrients they contain and for the favorable influence they exert upon the digestibility of other foods.
