What’s the difference between Green Beans and Haricots Verts?
The short answer is not much. Technically Haricots Verts are a french version of a green bean, and typically skinnier and slightly more tender.

The other end is totally fine to leave as is. Green beans are super versatile and can be cooked many different ways. The method I will show you today is my family’s favorite way to enjoy this spring vegetable. Ava says, “these are the best green beans I’ve ever had!”
