These Green Bean Fries can be served with one of three dipping sauces – green goddess, honey mustard or creamy sriracha. A breading of crushed ritz crackers makes them extra delicious.
Green Bean Fries have become a popular appetizer item at many restaurants. I think that I could go to town on those things and fill up before the main course even comes to the table. So, I decided to give a go at making these crispy little string beans a bit healthier at home. To do so, I’m using the oven, instead of a deep fryer. Coating them in crushed up crackers and giving them a light spray of oil before popping them into the oven. This totally does the trick and provides such a great, crispy texture, you won’t want to turn back to the original version!
I paired my Green Bean Fries with a trio of dipping sauces – Honey Mustard, Greek Goddess, and Sriracha Cream. If you’ve got kiddos at home, they’re going to love eating their vegetables this way. Most kids that I know love to dip.
The dipping sauces are super easy to make too. Here are the recipes:
Sauce for Fried Green Beans
- Honey Mustard Sauce: 1 Tablespoon Honey, 2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
- Green Goddess Dressing: Get the recipe here!
- Sriracha Cream Sauce: 1 Tablespoon Sriracha, 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt
Which sauce would you choose? I’m Green Goddess all the way.
