Who knew that something good for you could taste so good….I mean like crazy, amazing good. These parmesan green bean “fries” taste like you’re eating a treat, but, in fact, you’re just getting a good healthy dose of veggies and there is nothing fried about these. That’s what keeps them in the healthy department, they’re roasted in the oven and coated with a fairly small amount of olive oil and a little parmesan cheese to give these their, knock it out of the park, great flavor.
Since I know you’re going to want to eat a lot of these, you could easily double or triple the recipe, just make sure that you bake them in a single layer. You also probably won’t have to increase the oil by a full 2 or 3 times, just make sure the beans are well coated.
Parmesan Green Bean “Fries”
- 1/2 lb fresh green beans, trimmed, washed and dried
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 2 tbsp fresh grated parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place green beans in a mixing bowl and toss with the olive oil until beans are well coated.
Sprinkle remaining ingredients over the beans and toss until well coated.
Place in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Bake for 15-17 minutes until caramelized and crispy. (mine took the full 17 minutes)
