Get to Know the New Haricots Verts: Long Beans
Kemp Minifie on Long Beans:
Don’t these super-long beans look like haricots verts on steroids? They’re a regular in Asian markets, particularly those that carry Chinese and Southeast Asian produce, but they’re popping up with increasing frequency at farmers markets. You’ll see them labeled as yard-long beans, asparagus beans, Chinese long beans, and even snake beans.
Juicy they aren’t. Don’t expect to snack on them raw, like freshly picked string beans. Instead, think of them as the densest, meatiest cooked green beans you ever had.
