- The submersion is required to allow the water to penetrate the green bean pores, so the green beans will expand and blend more easily when heated.
- Heat water until it boils, only then put the green beans in. Boil for 3-5 minutes, then turn off the hob. Let the green bean submerged in the hot water for 30-60 minutes.
- Then turn back the hob on and boil as usual, and then see. The green beans are easily blended without taking too much time.
