Fries you can eat guilt free. These crispy green bean fries are baked in the oven so they make the perfect healthy side dish or just eat them as a snack as I did!
I usually use Panko bread crumbs, but since i didn’t have any I crushed some ritz crackers and it worked out perfect ( I actually liked it it better) ….So if you want to make a gluten free version, just crush some gluten free crackers.
For the seasoning, I used garlic salt and pepper but you can add your favorite spices.
To toss the green beans in flour, the easiest and less messy way for me is to add green beans and flour in a produce / ziploc bag and shake the bag…
I just eat them plain but you can serve with ranch dressing or make a dip with mayo and sriracha.
