Recipe: String Bean Salad (SCD/GAPS)


Aug 28


What to do with all those string beans coming in! Make a string bean salad! String beans are easy to digest for most people and so they are appropriate for people on the SCD or GAPS diets. Just make sure they are well cooked. I usually simply steam them until they are a dull green or a knife goes through easily, but still have a little firmness. String beans are full of nutrients.

They provide significant amounts of iron, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese and potassium, as well as folic acid, thiamine, B6 and molybdenum. They are also high in fiber.
