I love raw green beans dipped in Bleu Cheese or Ranch Dressing - and my child loves them. Recently, I was told that we shouldn't eat them "cuz they're poisonous." So, how many folks don't eat raw green beans for that reason?

Have been eating them fresh from the garden for 40+years, so far so good.

I don't really like them, but I love raw sugar snap peas dipped in ranch or hummus.

I agree with you except for the ranch dressing.

I like the small ones from the garden. Anything bigger I blanch before eating.

Right out of the garden. When I'm picking them off the vine I just rinse them with the hose and munch away. Ditto peas, radishes, cucumbers, etc. etc. etc.

My beans, cukes, and zukes just started to come up this week. We've had a long spell of nice, sunny, warm weather.

raw peas, radishes, cucumbers, zucchini etc are not comparable to green beans in their lectin content which is very low. I would eat most things raw (well not cassava or some purple yams ) but I wouldn't eat too many raw green beans, especially runner beans. Phytohaemagglutinin - its as appetizing as it sounds....! A few won't harm, but I wouldn't eat a whole serving raw.

After I originally looked this up I wasn't very concerned about the toxicity of raw green beans - but did you look at the write-up about Phytohaemagglutinin and red kidney beans? It says the slow-cooker method (80C) actually increases the hau levels and that they should be boiled for ten minutes at 100C.

I've never eaten them raw because it doesn't sound appealing, but I didn't know they could make you sick.
