Kid-Friendly Green Bean Recipe

Crispy Green Beans Are a Cunchy Snack and Tasty Side Dish

Sometimes an accident can lead to an invention! I was baking some green beans yesterday, got occupied with my baby, and left the veggies in the oven too long. But the result was absolutely delicious so I made another tray to nosh on. This crispy snack requires just two ingredients and a few minutes to make. Kiddos will love the french fry texture of the veggies that mom can be served alongside burgers for a more healthful dish.

Take trimmed green and/or yellow beans, spread them across a cookie sheet and then drizzle with a bit of olive oil and salt to taste. Pop the pan in the oven for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees. If the vegetables have reached desired crispiness, take the tray out and allow it to cool. To spice the dish up for mom and dad, add some crushed chili flakes before baking or some diced olives or tapenade after and serve.
