French Bean With Rosemary Oregano Lemon And Corn

French beans with rosemary, oregano, lemon and corn.
A delicious and aromatic side dish but its also taste great as a snack. You can serve it with toasted bread in breakfast or serve bowl full as a healthy and yummy snack.
Its very easy to make. If you have boiled French beans and sweet corn ready then you can make this in few minutes.

Our this week’s 164 #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is #beanpower. My humble contribution is this aromatic and delicious French beans with rosemary, oregano, lemon and sweat corn.

French beans are low calorie, nutritious and fiber rich vegetable.
The fiber content is very high, and it also provides some of your daily protein requirements. They also act as an easy source for acquiring vitamins like vitamin A, C, K, B6, and folic acid. In terms of minerals, green beans are a good source of calcium, silicon, iron, manganese, potassium, and copper.
The health benefits of green beans include a reduced risk of heart diseases and colon cancer, as well as controlled diabetes. They provide a boost to the immune system and contribute to the elimination of harmful free radicals.

And aromatic herbs like rosemary and oregano have many health benefits.
Rosemary and oregano contain diabetes-fighting compounds.
The popular culinary herbs oregano and rosemary are packed with healthful compounds, and now lab tests show they could work in much the same way as prescription anti-diabetic medication, scientists report. In their new study published in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, they found that how the herbs are grown makes a difference, and they also identified which compounds contribute the most to this promising trait.

You can serve it in breakfast with toasted bread or serve as a side dish with any bread. Or enjoy as a snack. Sweet corn is optional you can also make it without sweat corn. If you are making it for kids reduce the amount of chilli flakes or skip the chillies.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
