Cheesy Green Bean Fries

Cheesy Green Bean Fries

How do you make a vegetable taste good? Turn it into a fry! How do you make ANYTHING taste good? Put cheese on it!
I used to work for a dairy company and in every mini fridge were blocks of delicious organic cheese- completely free. (Although after getting almost run over by a cow that summer I think I deserved all the free cheese in the world but I digress…) Anyways, it took some serious willpower to pass by each kitchenette and not snag a slice, but instead I began to think of the myriad of ways in which I could incorporate cheese into a balanced recipe.

These crispy, cheesy green bean fries are delicious combination of crunch and salty cheesy bite. Great as a snack or side dish, they are perfect for both the picky eater and vegetable connoisseur. Serve as is or even dipped in some organic ketchup for an authentic fry experience.

3-4 cups of fresh green beans
¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese/nutritional yeast
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons olive oil

Preheat oven to 400F.
Cut ends of green beans.
Place trimmed green beans in a bowl and drizzle olive oil. Toss to coat green beans with the oil. Add all spices and cheese to the bowl and again toss to fully coat.

Place green beans onto a baking pan/dish, making sure they do not overlap.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Next, broil for 2-3 minutes for especially crispy green bean fries.
