Breaded Green Bean Fries

Breaded_Green_Bean_Fries_Recipe_001

Last time I bought green beans, I was SO UNLUCKY! Cos right after I took photos, they all fell on the ground and I couldn’t eat any of it. Needless to say, I was so pissed off, and I was like, “even if I walk to the damn store, I’m gonna get another batch” as I was so looking forward to eating them.

I made sure this wouldn’t happen today!

It’s all due to the small amount of space we have and sometimes I balance the pieces of wood between my desk and chair and if you’re not careful, they often come flying down.

I have to say, I LOVE how thee fries came out. I think if you want to make them crispier, you can leave them in the oven a little while after you turn it off, then let it air dry for a while after. I find that if you put it in a container straight away, it kind of becomes soft.

I love having these with some kind of dipping sauce that has tomato flavour in it! I have no idea why, but it just works really well that way.

Be sure to use high quality bread crumbs, not ones that are saturated in fat (literally).

Breaded Green Bean Fries

4 cups green beans
1 tablespoons extra light olive oil
1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan/sea salt
3 tablespoons pure bread crumbs (I used Trader Joe’s organic bread crumbs)
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
A pinch of Himalayan/sea salt
A few sprinkles ground pepper
A few sprinkles red pepper flakes

Serving sauce: Rao’s Arrabbiata or ketchup

Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C).

If your beans are not trimmed yet, you may wish to chop off a small part of the head and tail. Be sure to give the beans about an hour to air dry as they’ll most likely be most/wet. Then, use a paper towel to dry it completely.

In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, almond milk, cornstarch and sea salt. Mix together until it’s dissolved.

In a second large bowl, combine the bread crumbs (don’t use ones filled with oil), nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, a pinch of salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Mix it well until everything is even.

Add the beans in the bowl with the liquid and marinate them in the liquid for about 5 minutes, flip them over a few times so it’s well coated.

Once the beans are coated in the liquid, take one or few at a time and dip it in the bread crumbs and spices until it’s well coated.

Place them one by one next to each other on an oven tray sprayed with non-stick cooking oil. Be sure not to overlap the fries.

Keep coating until the beans are all coated. If you end up with a bit of bread crumb mixture left over, spread it on top of the beans on the oven tray.

Bake in the oven for about 30-35 minutes, be sure to turn them around after 15 minutes.
