what to do with a whole bag of defrosted green beans?

(10 Posts)

Bought these as no fresh and forgot they were under the pram.

Completely defrosted now so have to use them.

Any ideas?

Soup?

Chutney? Put loads in a risotto?

Put them in a fairly shallow casserole dish, slather on some olive oil, tomatoes (fresh chopped up is good, but if not, a tin of chopped will do), salt and pepper and a bit of lemon juice if you have it. Bake until it goes soggy and gooey (at least an hour/hour and a half). It will go with lamb, roast chicken.......

Even if you don't use them tonight OP, you can keep them in the fridge and use them tomorrow.

Forgot to say: cover it with a lid or tin foil before baking.

I would put them in the freezer.

You think they'd be ok going in?

Veg can be refrozen. But meat you would have to cook before refreezing.
