Green Beans

Yes, reheating canned vegetables like green beans, corn, and peas are all safe. There are two quick ways to reheat your side dishes. You can use the microwave for a quick fix, or the stove stop for when you have a little more time.


To reheat green beans on the stove, simply add them to a stove-safe pot, ½ of water and a tablespoon of butter (optional).

Heat over Medium heat until warmed through, this should take about six-seven minutes, depending on how much you had left over. Be sure that you stir them on occasion through the warming process so the bottom ones are not burned while the top remains chilly!

The Microwave

If you need a quick fix, simply place your leftovers in a microwave safe dish and microwave on high heat for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Stir, and heat for an additional 30 seconds if desired.

Canned vegetables are easy to reheat, and there is no harm done to them. Ensure that when you are storing them, that they are properly covered and chilled. Leftovers should be used within three days of opening, so if you have a lot left over, make a casserole.
