  • Summary

    Baked in the simplest (and healthiest) crispy coating you can imagine, these green bean fries are heavenly. I picked these green beans from our garden, preheated the oven to 425, snipped their ends, and threw them in a bowl with a bit of  oil, flax meal (yep!), salt and pepper. Flax oil can be compromised by heating to high temperatures, but whole (or ground) flax seeds are heat stable when baked, up to 660 degrees! Flax meal makes delicious nutty coating that is high in much needed omega 3s. Nice alternative to breadcrumbs, and they are naturally gluten-free. You can buy flax seeds whole (grind as needed in coffee grinder) or pre ground for an affordable price, just be sure to keep in fridge so they don’t spoil. Give these a try, they may become your new go-to for green beans! Ingredients1 lb fresh green beans, ends snipped3 Tbsp flax meal1 tsp salt1/2 tsp ground black pepper1 tsp oil (avocado or other high heat oil)MethodStep 1Preheat oven to 425 degrees.Step 2Toss green beans with all ingredients in medium bowl until coated well.Step 3Spread into an even layer on baking sheet, and bake 10-15 minutes until golden brown and crispy.Step 4Prepare dipping condiment of choice, highly recommend curry ketchup (ketchup with pinch of curry powder mixed in).
