Green Bean Fries – the Next Kale Chip!

Recipe: Green Bean Fries

Summary: Crunchy, addictive and good for you, these Green Bean “Fries” are going to be the next kale chip; just you wait and see.


  • 2 cups fresh green beans, ends cut off, or 1 pound frozen green beans, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a sheet tray with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl toss beans in the olive oil. Lay out on the sheet tray completely flat (bunched up beans will not get crispy).
  3. Mix together the remaining ingredients. Sprinkle evenly over the beans.
  4. Bake for 12 minutes. Carefully broil for another 1-2 minutes. Be sure not to broil for longer, or they will burn. Serve.
  5. Serves 4.
