Green Bean Crisps

Submitted by: JELLIO24

Introduction

I don't know if any of you have tried the all natural green bean crisps from Trader Joe's, but this is a far cheaper alternative and is ultimately the same snack!

All natural beans dusted with salt and baked in the oven. What a concept! ;)

Ingredients

    4 cups green beans
    salt
    olive oil cooking spray

Directions

Just prepare the green beans by snapping off the ends, then rinse and dry.
Spray baking sheet.
Spread a single layer on sheet and spray beans.
Dust salt over top. (as much or as little as you want)
Pop in the oven preheated at 400 for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 until crispy.

I have even drizzled a tiny bit of actual olive oil for a more robust taste, though that DOES ADD CALS AND FAT. Just be aware.

Happy snacking!

Member Ratings For This Recipe

  • I just tasted green bean crisps for the first time yesterday and immediately knew I wanted to make them (cheaper!) So this recipe (and the member ratings advice) is my answer. - 7/3/11

  • My words of advice: use only *fresh* string beans and go longer at a lower oven temp (like slow-roasting). I tried this with thawed frozen green beans, and they started to burn. I lowered temp to 200-degrees to save them. YUM! - 5/14/11
