Sharp eye thanks to garter

  1. Garter is a vegetable that is not yet widely used in Dutch cuisine. And that's a shame, because this pod is nice and spicy and also good for your eyes.

  2. Long beans are a vegetable that is not yet widely used in Dutch cuisine. And that's a shame, because this pod is nice and spicy and also good for your eyes.

What is it?

  1. Long beans are a vegetable that is widely used in Surinamese cuisine. The green pods are 6 to 10 inches long and resemble stretched green beans, but the flavor is slightly spicier. Garter originally comes from tropical regions in Asia, Africa and South America. In the tropics, such a pod can grow up to a meter long.

What's in it?

  1. Garter contains six times as much zeaxanthin as an average vegetable, and twice as much lutein. These are both antioxidants that are good for the eyes. They protect against the harmful effects of UV light. Lutein and zeaxanthin are located in the yellow spot (macula) in the retina, the focal point of the lens of the eye. With macular degeneration, the yellow spot gradually deteriorates. This eye disease is the main cause of visual impairment in the elderly in the Netherlands. Research indicates that lutein and zeaxanthin can counteract or delay this condition.

  1. Basically the same as with green beans: the pods should not be soft, but juicy and firm.

How do you store garter?

  1. You can keep the pods in a dark, cool place for a few days. Not in the fridge; then this tropical vegetable can discolor.

How do you prepare it?

  1. Also in terms of cleaning and preparation, long beans resemble green beans. Remove the ends and if necessary the stiff wires, cut the pods into pieces of 3 to 4 centimeters and cook for about 15 minutes. You can also braise or stir-fry.
