Then leave the beans in a colander so that the glass is excess liquid. Then transfer the beans to a cutting board, use a knife to cut the stalk from each pod and remove the hard vein. Cut the bean pods depending on your desire, these can be very small pieces with a length of 3 to 5 centimeters or larger, you can also marinate the beans without cutting them completely. Place the prepared beans in a deep bowl.
