Green beans, while seemingly common are actually a great and underestimated health food. String beans are rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C, manganese and beta-carotene, which provide a direct benefit to our heart health. Green beans are also high in vitamin K, a nutrient imperative to the blood clotting process and to supporting healthy bones.

Ingredients

1 bag Field Goods Frozen Green Beans (defrosted)
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons Olive Oil
2 teaspoons White Balsamic Vinegar
*Salt & Pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread green beans and garlic on lined baking sheet.
Drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar, stir gently.
Sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste.
Roast in oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned on edges.

Official Valentine’s Day Vegetable

We are voting hands-down for the beet to be the official Valentine’s Day vegetable. As a contender for this honor (which we invented), beets have it all. They are red, heart-healthy, sweet, and turn everything they touch pink. But most importantly, they give Cupid a run for his money in the love department. Beets were considered an aphrodisiac by the amorous Ancient Romans, wisely so because beets contain amino acids and minerals that increase the level of sex hormones and feelings of happiness.

Toss the box of chocolates out the window. Give your love a box of beets.
