Green Beans with Walnuts and Blue Cheese {Low-FODMAP}

Low-FODMAP Green Beans with Walnuts & Blue Cheese  /  Delicious as it Looks

Fresh green beans are excellent this time of year here in Iowa. August is probably the best time of year for fresh home grown produce in the Midwest. Sweet corn, tomatoes, green beans, it's all so good right now!



This recipe really honors the crisp flavor of fresh green beans. It's actually more like a salad. First the green beans are steamed, then dunked in ice water to chill them and keep their bright green color. The beans are then dressed with a light vinaigrette, toasted walnuts and crumbles of blue cheese. So fresh and delicious!

Like I mentioned in my previous green bean recipe post (see Green Beans Almondine), a low-FODMAP serving size is 12 green beans. Four servings of green beans (48 green beans) is about 1/2 a pound. This makes it easy to know how much to cook!
