Baked Green Bean Fries

I wish I could give credit where credit is due for this recipe, but I have no idea whose blog I got the idea from...but I think I saw it sometime last fall. If it is yours please claim it!! :)  I am terrible at following a recipe and usually see something online and then prepare it the way I remember it. LOL But this is how I make my baked green bean fries!!! And they are YUMMY!

About 2 or 3 handfuls of fresh green beans  ( it usually runs me less than $1.50)
1tbs of EVOO
a couple of shakes of coarse garlic salt...or sea salt whatever you have...
a bit of grinded black pepper.

Wash your green beans and cut off the ends (I just cut a tiny bit off, and you could probably get away with not cutting off the ends at all, but I like to chop veggies and pretend I am on a cooking show LOL)

Throw your green beans, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl with a lid and shake it up for about 30 seconds

Spread them across a foil lined cookie sheet...

Cook in oven on 425 for about 25 minutes...flipping midway...

I like mine a bit burned so sometimes a watch them for a couple more minutes until I notice the edges looking crispy.

YUMMY!!! What a delicious way to get in some veggies and a healthy fat!!!


  1. THANKYOU!!! Im NOT a veggie lover and Im looking/begging for recipes, and this sounds like something I will enjoy!!

  2. YUM!!! I must try it, sounds delish :)

  3. What a great way to eat greenbeans -a nice change of pace. Will definitely give them a try!!! Thanks!

  4. Oh, my gosh! What a neat idea! I never would have thought to try green beans this way.

  5. Roasted asparagus is awesome too! :)

  6. I think it's TGI Fridays or one of those restaurants that have Green Bean Fries (but are definitely fried in oil, no doubt). I wonder what this would be like dipped in some egg whites/egg beaters/eggs and rolled in bread crumbs and then baked? mmmmm
