Home Cuisine American Green Fries (Green Bean Side Dish)

Green Fries (Green Bean Side Dish)

This is one of our favorite side dishes,  one that I like to make more often than the others because the kids love it. You know, if you’re a parent, how hard it is at times to make kids especially the younger ones eat their veggies.  So whenever I find a way to get them to eat veggies, I feel happy and proud of myself ( yay, I’m a good momma!  lol). This is super-duper easy. I call it green fries to humor my son who likes french fries so much. I told him that this is the green version. Glad he liked it and so does my daughter and hubby (triple yay!)  It’s crunchy and has a nutty taste. I like to add sesame seeds, white or black, whatever I have on hand, you may skip it if you don’t like it.

Give it a try, hope your kiddos will like it too!

Happy Cooking! 🙂

note: Make sure that you trim the ends of the green bean, it has a thread-like fiber at the sides that can sometimes get stuck in your throat ( it happened to me).  To trim the green beans, just snap the tip and pull down, do the other end and pull down to get the “thread ” on the other side. that’s it.
