Green Beans are a Healthy, less Musical Bean!

My girls recently learned the little ditty, ‘beans beans, the musical fruit, beans beans, make you toot.’  Well, if that’s a concern for your digestive system, you are in luck with Green Beans.  They are low on the FODMAP, meaning they are easy on your digestive system.  Foods that are high on the FODMAP, such as many other beans (ex. black beans), can lead to gas, belly pain, diarrhea, and constipation.  Green Beans are easy on your digestive system so they make a great alternative to other legumes!

A cup of Green Beans has only 31 calories, almost 3g fiber, and 2g protein.  They also contain many vitamins, including Vit A, C, and folate, as well as many important minerals, such as calcium and iron.  For more on the health benefits of green beans, check out this article from Healthline.com.

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR CRISPY GREEN BEAN FRIES

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details)

Making Parmesan Green Bean Fries

For these Crispy Parmesan Green Bean Fries, you can prepare the Mustard Mayo Sauce and coat the beans with the Parm breadcrumbs in advance.  However, do not cook them until you are ready to serve as they will get mushy if you try to reheat them.

For the sauce, I love this simply Garlic, Mustard Mayo sauce.  I use yellow mustard vs. dijon here because I love the tang and milder flavor so that the flavor from the parmesan and beans really stands out.

Rince the green beans and snip off the stems from the ends. Dry with a towel.

Spray or drizzle a large sheet pan with Extra Virgin Olive Oil Cooking Spray. TIP: line with aluminum before spraying for easy cleanup

Mix the parmesan, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper in a medium-size bowl (large enough to place 5-6 green beans at a time). 

In a second medium-size bowl, beat 1 egg with a tablespoon water.

Make the bean fries in batches of 5-6 at a time. You can get more into the egg, but transfer only a few at a time to the breadcrumbs or else you risk it all getting clumpy on you. 

First dip the beans in the egg. Scoop out and let excess egg drip off. Then dredge in the Parm breadcrumbs and toss to coat.

Scoop out and place on an oil coated pan. Make sure to leave some space between the green beans so they are not overcrowded.

Once you have all of the beans coated, you can cover with plastic wrap or foil and store in the fridge for 1 day or move straight to baking.  Note, these do not freeze well as the beans have water that will make them mushy and they just won’t crisp up.

COOK YOUR GREEN BEAN FRIES 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the beans on center rack in oven for 10 minutes.
