I wish I would have discovered roasted green beans sooner. They are absolutely delicious!
And nutritious too! Green beans have recently been shown to have impressive antioxidant capacity. Research comparing the overall antioxidant capacity of green beans to other foods in the pea and bean families has found green beans to come out on top. Recent studies have confirmed the presence of lutein, beta-carotene, violaxanthin, and neoxanthin in green beans. In some cases, the presence of these carotenoids in green beans is comparable to their presence in other carotenoid-rich vegetables like carrots and tomatoes. Woohoo! One cup of raw greens beans has 31 calories, 1.8 grams of protein, 7 grams of carbohydrates and almost 3 grams of fiber. Source: Wholefoods.com
