Green Bean Fries

I cant believe its been a month since my last recipe post. The reopening of Chicago means I have to redevelop what my work day looks like; leaving less time for me to drop a word or two on Beyonce’s internet. Lately, I have received questions regarding healthy recipes and options. As the world reopens and we take a report of our GrubHub activity and the way our favorite pair of jeans no longer favor us; we are all trying to shake that quarantine weight off. I like how my friend put it in a recent convo. We got a little fluffy over the past year and a half.

I think conquering the midday snack is one way to do just that. I love fries, potato chips, and popcorn for those hunger slumps.The other day I was looking at this sad bag of baby carrots and it was staring back at me. While I crunched away, I decided to fashion my a healthier fry option and skip the delivery

. These green bean fries can be an easy substitute for days you are considering lowering carbs. Although, I have never met a carb I don’t like I can assure you I appreciate the break this snack allows me. A little parmesan and bread crumbs make for a healthy but satisfying snack or party app. Try this recipe out and tell me what your thighs think.

Low carb*

Ingredients:

  • Green Beans (1 lb., ends trimmed)
  • Italian Bread crumbs (1/2 cup)
  • Parmesan (1/2 cup, shredded)
  • Egg (1, large)
  • Garlic Powder (1/2 tsp)
  • Thyme (1/2 tsp)
  • Kosher Salt (1 tsp.)
  • Black Pepper (1 tsp.)
  • Olive Oil (2 tbs., if using an oven, skip oil if using an air fryer)

Instructions:

  1. Season green beans with garlic powder, thyme, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Mix together parmesan and bread crumbs
  3. Beat egg and coat the green beans.
  4. Roll the egg coated green beans in the parmesan crumb mixture.
  5. If cooking in an air fryer, you do not need to use the olive oil.
    • Place green beans evenly/spaced out in your air fryer.
    • Cook for 12-15 mins on 400° .
  6. If cooking in an oven, line your green beans on a baking sheet.
    • Drizzle with olive oil.
    • Bake on 425°  for 20-25 mins, until desired crispiness.

I usually serve mine with an aioli. (Garlic, Lemon, or Chive serve as good dipping options)

Enjoy!
