I cooked something that isn’t a dessert. Imagine that.

We’ve been meatless since October and while I wouldn’t call myself a vegetarian (I’ve had chicken here and there), I definitely haven’t missed meat.

It makes maintaining a food blog a little difficult when all I have been eating is stir-fry variations, though. Have any vegetarian blogs you want to share with me?

I love green beans. They’re right up there with zucchini for me. I’ve made baked zucchini sticks but this was my first time making green bean fries.

They’re slightly time consuming because there are quite a few steps, but they’re worth it. They’re crispy and crunchy and I didn’t feel guilty about eating them at all.

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans

Flour Mixture

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

Egg Mixture

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk

Breading Mixture

  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs

Instructions
 

For the Green Beans

  • Preheat over to 425 degrees.
  • Cover a large baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with non-stick spray (I used an olive oil one) and set aside.
  • In a medium pot, add 2-3" of water and some salt and bring to a boil.
  • While you're waiting for the water to boil (put a lid on the pot to speed it up), trim the ends off the green beans.
  • Once the water is boiling, add the green beans and boil for approximately 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add ice and water to a large bowl to make an ice bath.
  • After 3 minutes, drain the green beans and add them to the ice bath. Let them cool down, then drain and pat the green beans dry.

For the Flour Mixture

  • In a small bowl, add the flour, garlic powder/salt, paprika, and onion powder. Whisk it together and set aside.

For the Egg Mixture

  • In another bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. Add about 2 tablespoons of the flour mixture to the egg mixture and whisk it to combine. Set aside.

For the Breading

  • In a third bowl, pour in your panko bread crumbs. If you're not using the seasoned kind, sprinkle in some salt and pepper and stir to combine. Set aside.

To Assemble

  • Set up an assembly line in the following order - green beans, flour mix, egg mix, bread crumbs, pan.
  • Dredge each green bean into the flour, then dip it in the egg mix, then dip it in the bread crumbs. Make sure you fully coat the green beans with each step. Line them in a single layer on your baking sheet.
  • Bake the green beans for around 15 minutes, until the breading is golden brown and crispy.
  • I mixed up a dipping sauce of ranch with a little bit of Frank's hot sauce. Simple & so good.

    These look great! Good for you going mostly meat free since October! That’s awesome! I tried to give up meat one year for Lent and didn’t make it even a week I don’t think, haha! 😉

    Oops Melissa, sorry, Joann again. The “freezing question” I just asked about? Same question on your Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and your Baked Zucchini Fries. These would be great recipes to help me “put-up” my gardening results. Thanks again!

    • Melissa Williams says

      Hi Joann – welcome =) I have never tried it, unfortunately. It’s possible, I’m sure (I think I’ve seen Baked Green Bean Fries in the freezer section), I’m just not sure of technique. I’d love to hear how it works out if you try!
