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!
- 1 lb fresh green beans, ends snipped
- 3 Tbsp flax meal
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tsp oil (avocado or other high heat oil)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Toss green beans with all ingredients in medium bowl until coated well.
Spread into an even layer on baking sheet, and bake 10-15 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
Prepare dipping condiment of choice, highly recommend curry ketchup (ketchup with pinch of curry powder mixed in). Enjoy!
