Have you ever tried wax bean fries? If you haven’t its about time! Wax bean fries are easy and easy to make, only requiring wax beans to make them. You can of course add some olive oil if you prefer it, but it’s really not needed. These wax bean fries are a fun alternative if you want to mix things up a bit or just make a lighter and healthier alternative to classic potato fries. I tried them once, and then I was hooked! So whenever wax bean are in season, I make them several times a week. Not only are these fries a good healthy alternative to regular potato fries, but they’re also perfect to make and snack on, serve as finger food/appetizer or as a side dish to you main course.
A few tips:
- I did not use any olive oil for these wax beans. But you can of course add some olive oil if preferred.
- Make these wax beans in the oven or in an air fryer. But make sure to keep an eye on them, because they go from golden brown to burnt in just a few seconds. Making them in the air fryer is a few minutes quicker compared to the oven.
- I usually make these wax bean fries during summer when wax beans are in season. But you can also use frozen wax bean. I would recommend you not to thaw the beans before cooking them if frozen, to prevent them from getting too wet and soggy.
- You can eat the wax bean fries just as they are or add additional seasoning, like chili powder, paprika powder, pesto, parmesan cheese etc.
