Healthy Eating Series: Sous Vide Green Beans with Lemon and Dates

Cook time: 1 hour

Serves 4


  • 1 lb green beans
  • 2 pats butter
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp whole grain mustard
  • 1 small shallot – thinly diced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp champagne vinegar
  • 1 lemon – juiced and zest saved
  • 4 dates – slivered
  • ¼th cup slivered almonds
  • cracked pepper to taste


  1. Set up Nomiku water bath to 83ºC (181ºF).
  2. Seal green beans in a bag with two pats of butter and lemon juice. Sous vide for an hour. Green beans benefit a lot from cooking sous vide – they will retain their color, vibrancy, flavor and texture.
  3. In a small bowl, thoroughly mix honey, mustard, shallots, olive oil and champagne vinegar. Remove green beans from water bath, drain and plate. Top with dates, almonds, vinaigrette and garnish with lemon zest and cracked pepper.
