  2. Place fresh beans into a steamer basket in a pan with a just enough water to slightly show through in the basket.

  4. Reserve any left over water to use for thinning out the beans.
  5. Place into your choice of appliance for pureeing and begin pureeing. It is best to use the setting that makes the finest liquid purees - green bean and pea skins are rather difficult to completely puree.
