Green Bean French Fries

 this is taken with my cell phone hopefully soon I will have a working 'real' camera again
There are only 2 vegetables that I really REALLY don't care for and they are mushrooms and green beans... well and olives but is an olive a fruit or vegetable, I don't know.  Anyways they are not my favorite, I mean I will eat them but I won't enjoy it.  Then in our bountiful basket we got 2 large bags of fresh green beans (which fresh is a lot better than canned, but still)  Then I remembered having Green Bean French Fries at a restaurant and started my quest to find the perfect recipe to make these and I found an amazing on on allrecipes.com

Green Bean French Fries


  • 1 quart vegetable oil for frying




  • 2 cups all-purpose flour




  • 4 teaspoons salt




  • 1 teaspoon black pepper




  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder




  • 1 cup buttermilk (I used milk with a teaspoon of vinegar)




  • 1 pound fresh green




  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees.  Whisk together the flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder; set aside. Pour the buttermilk into a shallow dish or a large zip-top bag.  Toss the green beans in the buttermilk.   Shake off excess flour and in small batches fry in oil until it turns golden brown (around 4 minutes)  Drain on paper towels or I used a paper grocery bag.  Serve hot.  These are amazing dipped in ranch dressing or your favorite dip.   NOW these green beans I will eat!!!
