Perhaps one of the easiest (and tastiest) recipes of this summer, these green bean fries are off the charts. Baked in the simplest (and healthiest) crispy coating you can imagine, these are heavenly. I picked these green beans from our garden, preheated the oven to 425, snipped their ends, and threw them in a bowl with some avocado oil, flax meal (yep!), salt and pepper. Flax oil can be compromised by heating to high temperatures, but whole (or ground) flax seeds are heat stable when baked, up to 660 degrees! Flax meal makes delicious nutty coating that is high in much needed omega 3s. Nice alternative to breadcrumbs, and they are naturally gluten-free. Ten to fiften minutes later these were browned to perfection and ready to go. A small bowl of ketchup mixed with a pinch of curry powder, and these are elevated to divine. Give them a try, may become your new go-to for green beans!
