Crispy Baked Parmesan Green Bean Fries

Рfrom Dashing Dish

Some off our favorite green veggie recipes don’t adapt so well to winter (read: frozen) veggies. We were glad to stumble upon this one, which is perfect for frozen AND fresh beans – yum!

Ingredients

14 oz of frozen whole green beans (or about 4 cups fresh)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp Salt (or to taste)
1/8 tsp Pepper (or to taste)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease a baking sheet (lard works great!) or use parchment paper for a compostable quick clean-up.

If using frozen green beans, thaw them beforehand. If using fresh green beans, wash and snip off the ends.

Place green beans on prepared baking pan, making sure they are evenly spread out, and none are laying on top of each other, (this will ensure even crispiness!) Sprinkle seasonings and parmesan cheese evenly over green beans.

Place green beans in the pre-heated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy! (To make them extra crispy, I like to broil them for an extra 1-2 minutes before pulling them out of the oven). Enjoy immediately with ketchup or dipping sauce of choice. (Another great opportunity for hot sauce!)
