Green Bean Fries

IMG_2432These are a great side dish… and super easy to make. They’ll go well with a sandwich or a burger as an alternate to fries. Although let’s be honest… there’s nothing quite like a good french fry sometimes. These green bean fries are crispy and satisfying. They’re also a little spicy since I add some cayenne pepper… of course if you’re not as big of a spice fan as I am, then you can just take it out.




What you’ll need:IMG_2426

  • 2 cups of green beans
  • 2/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 egg whites

IMG_2431Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Trim the ends off all of the green beans and set aside. In a bowl add the egg whites and a splash of water. Mix together. In a separate bowl, add the bread crumbs, salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Mix together. Coat the green beans in the egg wash, and then in the bread crumb mixture. Put on a baking sheet and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the bread crumbs are golden brown. Watch the green beans very carefully and check on them frequently so they don’t burn. They may need a little less or a little more time.

Enjoy this quick and easy veggie side dish!
