I got a bunch of wax beans at a produce stand this weekend. Looking for new ways to prepare them.

I love the 3 bean salad that you get in those huge jars at Costco, but This Recipe for a bean salad sounds even better and fresher.

You could also make Sweet and Spicy Pickles out of them. These sound yummy.

Here’s one I came across on accident and it wowed me. Szechuan Wax Beans

How about a Wax Bean Crumble I was drooling when I saw the photo.

OK, now I’ve seen it all (or have I?) this just might be my favorite idea for these beans, Miso Wax Bean Salad

This recipe for multiple Roasted Beans With a Fried Egg on top is way out of my comfort zone for how many steps there are, but if you just used the wax beans and maybe the edamame, it could be wonderful.

Happy eating : )

I broil most all of my veggies now. Usually with a bit of olive oil and lemon juice. It gives you crispy with texture. Just be careful not to over do.

At this time of year, I would blanche them until al dente and then make a cold salad.

½ lb. wax beans, cooked until crisp tender
3 green onions, chopped
1 sm. diced red sweet pepper
3 tbsp. oil
1 tbsp. wine vinegar
¼ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. chopped parsley
¼ tsp. oregano
Combine all ingredients, toss and refrigerate 1 hour at least.
