How To Make Fried Green Beans

Prepare the green beans first by washing them and patting them dry. Trim off the ends and set aside while preparing the batter.

Whisk together the batter ingredients until smooth and lump-free. Dip the green beans into the batter and fry in oil (over medium heat) until golden and cooked through.


– This recipe is not suitable for canned or frozen green beans. Rather use fresh green beans.

– Trimming the beans is necessary to prevent stringiness.

– If you don’t like your green beans too crunchy, you can blanch them before frying in the batter.

– Don’t overheat the oil. If it’s too hot, the batter will burn before the green beans are cooked through. If it’s too cold, the batter will absorb too much oil and become soggy.

– Make keto-friendly Fried Green Beans by using almond flour.

Add beer to the batter to make it extra light and fluffy! If you want more crunchiness, add bread crumbs to the batter.

– To bake the Green Beans in the oven, lay them on a baking tray and bake at 425°F until golden. You can also cook them in an Airfryer. Place the beans in the Airfryer basket and cook at 390°F for about 5 minutes until golden brown.


Fried Green Bean Variations

Make them spicy, by adding chili powder or taco seasoning to the batter.

Add cheese to the batter: mozzarella, cheddar, feta, or parmesan.

What To Serve With Fried Green Beans

Serve the Fried Green Beans with your favorite dipping sauce. Delicious options include garlic aioli, hummus, red pepper spread, ranch dressing, or sweet chili sauce.

How To Store Fried Green Beans

The Fried Green Beans are best served and enjoyed immediately, as they will become soggy once stored. But if you don’t mind sogginess, you can store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
