French green beans or filet beans

What is it?

While the French term haricot vert does literally translate to “green bean,” they’re not just green beans. These delicate, very thin beans come in green and yellow. Picked at their peak, they are the crème de la crème of beans, and priced accordingly.

Don’t have it?

For most practical purposes, you can substitute slender green beans.
