Description:

Chinese Long Beans (also known as yard-long beans, or asparagus beans) are close relatives of the black-eyed pea rather than the green beans. Crunchier than green beans and with a slightly tougher texture, long beans can take a little more cooking without getting mushy. Although the flavor is similar, they do not taste exactly like green beans and are not a substitute. Even though they work well in green bean dishes, long beans bring their own characteristic flavor to a dish. Long beans are great simply blanched and tossed in sesame oil, served hot or at room temperature. They can also be deep-fried, stir-fried, cooked with meats and flavorful sauces, served hot or cold. The beans are usually cut into 1- to 2-inch lengths, but require no stringing.
