Deep Frozen Fansi French Beans may be used immediately from frozen, making them a tidy and convenient way of enjoying the vegetable at its best. French beans can be stir-fried and are used in oriental cookery in this way. They can be added to soups and stews and used to garnish vegetable dishes. French beans are smaller than common green beans and have a soft, velvety pod. Quite fleshy for their size, only tiny seeds inhabit these delicate pods. French beans are sweet, tender, and wonderfully crispy. French beans are delicious. When lightly cooked, French beans provide earthy, sweet, and vegetal flavors, and they are a popular supporting side to rich, savory main dishes.
