Greener BeeGreen LivingCrispy Green Bean Fries (Vegan and Rich in Omega 3s!)

From Renee Press at Plant Based on a Budget

Baked in the simplest — and healthiest — crispy coating you can imagine, these green bean fries 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 a bit of  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 a delicious nutty coating that is high in much needed omega-3s. A nice alternative to breadcrumbs, they are naturally gluten-free. You can buy flax seeds whole — grind as needed in coffee grinder — or pre-ground for an affordable price, just be sure to keep in fridge so they don’t spoil.

Give these a try, they may become your new go-to for green beans!
