Spicy Green Bean ‘Fries’

Spicy Green Beans Crisps
By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

I have been to a few restaurants lately where green bean ‘fries’ have been an option instead of regular fries. Halleluiah! Why hasn’t this gone global?! These are great to enjoy as a side dish or as a quick savory snack. One cup of green beans provides 4g of fiber, 2g of protein, 875IU of Vitamin A (17%), Vitamin K 20mcg (25%). Folate 43mcg (10%), calcium 55mg, magnesium 22.5mg along with B vitamins, iron and potassium. You can get all of this for just a handful of green beans! These are moorish, delicious and yummy!
