I am always looking for creative ways to get my kids to eat their vegetables. Honestly, Ari will eat anything we put in front of him. But the girls are a different story. While Remy will eat plain old brocoli (which is weird, right?), she won’t touch other vegetables. Like, at all. My air fryer helps me pull out all the stunts (and get the kids to eat!) with this garlic parmesan green bean fries recipe.
What you’ll need to make Garlic Parmesan Green Bean Fries
As mentioned before, this recipe is super simple. But the one item you’ll want to be sure you have for this is an air fryer. My favorite can be found here. I truly don’t recommend baking these instead of air frying. They just won’t be as crisp as they should be.
The other ingredients you’ll need are the following:
- a pound of fresh green beans
- shredded parmesan
- minced garlic
- and eggs
That’s it! The dredging and coating are really straight forward. Just be sure you grease the air fryer basket with your favorite cooking spray before placing the green beans in.
Additionally, be sure to serve it with your favorite dipping sauce. I really like a spicy aioli, but my kids prefer ketchup (because, of course).
The full details
- 1 lbs of fresh green beans
- 1 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan
- 2 tablespoons of minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon of pepper
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 2 eggs
STEP 1 -
Trim the tips off the green beans and wash them.
STEP 2 -
In a bowl, whisk the eggs until beaten, add the garlic. Place the green beans in and let them soak while you prepare the flour mixture.
STEP 3 -
In a gallon storage bag, add the flour, salt and pepper, and parmesan.
STEP 4 -
Add some green beans from the egg wash and place them in the bag. Shake vigorously to coat the green beans evenly.
STEP 5 -
Place green beans in the air fryer basket and spray with oil. Gently shuffle them to coat them all. Don’t over stuff the beans but they can be on top of each other.
STEP 6 -
Cook on 370 for 12 minutes out until golden brown.
STEP 7 -
Enjoy with any sauce you like, or by itself!
