Vegfrog that's a very good question.
Runner beans contain trace amounts of Phytohaemagglutinin (PHA), a poisonous substance. Cooking (boiling for 10 minutes) deactivates the PHA.
As far as I can determine from reading, pinto beans are also low in PHA. The major PHA risk is red kidney beans and then a few others like fava and lima.
If you particularly like or want to eat beans raw, in my opinion eating small amounts of runner or pinto beans would be okay as the amount of PHA would be so tiny as to be barely detectable. I'd say try a small amount and see how you feel afterwards. Any nausea, vomiting or other signs of poisoning and you'll know they don't agree with you. I guess it also depends on your attitude to food...are you brave or do you err on the safe side?

I blanched and froze them last year, but I leave the country in three weeks until next year. Maybe I'll give everyone I know a going away present of frozen beans, haha!

Of course, you can blanch them.. and freeze them for another time.
Saves having to eating green beans until they run out of your ears.

Hey Everyone,

I have both a CSA share and my own small vegetable garden and while most things are so behind due to the very extreme weather summer we've been having... ONE plant prevailed: green beans.

And now I have several pounds which I have no idea how to cook. I use them as 'fries' for vegan burgers and in soup aaaand that's about it. So any green bean recipe (preferably vegan) would greatly be appreciated
