Today’s recipe features green beans, which are high in several preventive health nutrients:
  • Excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese
  • Very good source of vitamin A (via carotenoids including beta-carotene), fiber, potassium, folate, and iron.
  • Good source of magnesium, thiamin, riboflavin, copper, calcium, phosphorous, protein, (short-chain) omega-3 fatty acids, and niacin.
This makes the humble string bean a rich but overlooked source of B vitamins and antioxidants helpful to heart health. And its high vitamin K content aids bone strength by activating osteocalcin: a protein that holds on to calcium.

Serves 4

1 1/2 cups Jasmine or brown basmati rice
1 1/2 cups French green beans* (haricot vertes), topped and diagonally sliced

1 medium yellow onion, halved, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 (6 oz each) wild Alaskan salmon fillets
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
1/2 lemon, juiced
Sea salt and organic black pepper to taste or Organic Salmon Marinade mix (includes salt) and organic black pepper to taste

*You can use regular green beans, although haricots vertes work a bit better.

  • Cook the rice in a large saucepan, following packet directions for absorption method. Add beans for the last 5 minutes of cooking.

  • Meanwhile, heat 1 teaspoon of the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3‒4 minutes or until it begins to soften. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
