6 Interesting & Unusual Vegetables (Slideshow)

 

6. Sea Beans

Though the name suggests that sea beans grow in, well, the sea, they’re actually found in salt marshes, beaches and mangroves across the globe. Sea beans are quite salty, and have a crunch like sugar snap peas. As tasty raw as they are fresh, sea beans are a popular addition to salads, stir-frys, and are tasty steamed and lightly dressed. You may want to skip these if you’re watching your sodium intake, and there’s no need to add any salt when cooking. Look for sea beans at farmer’s markets, natural supermarkets, and specialty stores.
