Fried Green Beans

A lot of people love green beans. But like so many other vegetables, the traditional version of these greens sometimes get a bad reputation with kids (and some adults). One of the biggest culprits is serving green beans that are too soft. Luckily, we have the solution. These lightly fried green beans are so addicting, especially when you dip them in our tasty lemon dill dip. You will have no problem getting your kids to eat their veggies when you serve these with dinner. These green beans are lightly battered and fried in a shallow pan of hot oil, which cooks the beans but still leaves them with a nice crunch. No one wants soggy droopy green beans.

Make it a Meal

These Fried Green Beans are great as a side dish to just about any meal. I especially like them with grilled meat, like our New York Steaks or Grilled Balsamic Chicken. I often serve green beans with meatloaf. But if you want to mix things up you will enjoy the Fried Green Beans served alongside this Claim Jumper Meatloaf.

Another great option is to try these Instant Pot Pork Chops and Gravy or this delicious Honey Baked Ham copycat. All great options to try.

Instructions

  • Add about ½ inch of oil to the bottom of a shallow fry pan and heat to medium.

  • In a separate ziplock bag, add the flour and parmesan cheese and shake them around to combine.
  • Do not pour, but grab handfuls from the green bean bag, and add them to the flour mixture. Seal the bag and shake to coat the beans.
  • Carefully place the beans in the oil and try not to overlap. Fry until they become golden in color, then remove to paper towels to cool. Lightly salt. Once cooled, serve with the lemon dill dip.
