Green Bean Fries with a Trio of Dipping Sauces

Green Bean Fries platingsandpairings.com

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.
