We were searching for a vegetarian alternative to small fried fish that we ate at the seaside some moons ago, and with green beans in season and our local grocer having a bountiful supply at present, we put two and two together and came up with this 10 of 10 a snack / side dish.

Super quick and easy, this really works. You can season with whatever you choose - we went simple with garlic powder and a hint of cayenne - and then served with a good squeeze of lemon and Niko’s delicious and healthy Tzatziki recipe!



Couple of large handfuls of green beans
1 Tablespoon of plain flour
1 Egg, beaten
1 Cup of Panko bread crumbs
2 Teaspoons of garlic powder
½ Teaspoon of Cayenne pepper or Paprika
Salt & Pepper

Make It

Preheat your oven to 220º celsius while you wash and trim your beans.

Beat the egg in a dish. In another bowl, mix your Panko breadcrumbs with ½ teaspoon of salt, a good grind of black pepper and you garlic & pepper.

Toss your green beans in the flour, then dip in the egg. Transfer to the panko mix.

Drizzle a little oil onto a lined baking tray and add the beans, making sure they’re evenly spread and not stacked up.

Bake for 12 minutes, checking and tossing part way through, they should be golden and crunchy.
