Hondurans love green beans with eggs! This combination is truly delicious and very nutritious. The green beans are low in calories, high in fiber and potassium, and there’s very little sodium. This is great for everyone, but especially for individuals suffering from high blood pressure.
So, imagine the nutrition punch this recipe has if we add eggs to the beans! Eggs are an excellent source of complete protein and fat-soluble vitamins. Consider making it for a ‘Meatless Monday’ or ‘Meatless Friday’ paired with brown rice.
Here is the super healthy, delicious and easy recipe also suitable for ovo-vegetarians.
