Yes, green beans are Paleo-friendly! These soft, edible-podded legumes are much lower in anti-nutrients, and therefore more digestible than their more mature, dried-legume cousins such as kidney, garbanzo and navy beans. Our Roasted Green Bean recipe is so simple – just three ingredients – and it’s a delicious and nutritious side dish for even the most picky veggie eater. Even a highly discerning palate can handle green beans! If thyme is too strong an herb, use whatever seasoning you enjoy.
