In my opinion, vegetables are a crucial part of any meal, providing the much-needed nutritional touch. They are, obviously, the perfect natural solution for a healthy, well-balanced diet.

Easy-to-make dinners without compromising on taste and nutritional value should be your focal point. With veggies, go for easy prep ideas like the trimmed beans in this sauteed green beans recipe. Cooking whole beans is such a smart idea to minimize the prep time.
This recipe is all about celebrating the vibrant green color of these green beans. Bright and cheery, they really remind me of the warmth of sunshine in summer.
The stir fry tastes best when the beans are tender but has a slight crisp texture. Do not overcook the green beans if you want to retain the bright green color.
The best part is that this sauteed green beans is a cinch to make. Before you start with the recipe, just remove the woody ends of green beans. Now all you need to do is splutter few cumin seeds, sauté sliced garlic, and stir fry green beans along with a touch of ground turmeric. I like to add a splash of water to facilitate the cooking process without burning them.
The accents of green and the lovely stir fry flavor make these simple sauteed green beans sing. The beans literally look so fresh and inviting. To be exact, it’s your invitation to spring and healthy eating.
