Fried green beans recipe, like a copycat green beans recipe from The Habit! Great vegetable side dish that my kids love and we do too.
So I’m always looking to add a new and tasty vegetable side dish to our dinners, and so far it has worked since we went from children liking NO veggies to now they sometimes prefer them over their meat dish. I started with salt and pepper zucchini chips which they love and moved on to fried green beans which are now one of our favorites. I LOVE The Habit’s green beans so I made a copycat version here, hope you like them. (originally published 2/16)
It isn’t often that we go out to eat but when we do I gravitate toward these fried green beans at The Habit and figured there had to be a way to create a recipe so I could make them at home for dinner too….it was really quite easy.
Of course it isn’t exactly the same but I since I can cook them with really fresh green beans they come out a bit more turgid and fresh than in the restaurant which is a win. Here is the recipe for tempura batter you will need.
What you need to make Fried green beans
- Fresh green beans
- Garlic powder
- Seasoned salt
Fried Green Beans
- Heat oil until hot.
- Mix flour, water, and egg in a bowl until smooth.
- Wash and cut off ends of green beans. Use a fork and dip green beans into batter and put in oil when hot, turn over when lightly browned. Put on paper towels to absorb excess oil when done. Put a pinch of seasoned salt on and serve!
It is nice to mix it up at dinner time, and if you want a fun way to serve them at dinner or at a party these basket/cones are fantastic especially when you have kids. Believe me when I say that it took some time to get my kids to truly love vegetables but trying new ones, and new ways of cooking them helps to enhance the love.
You can try our rosemary parmesan mushrooms too that are now a hit and made with this same tempura batter.
Let me know what you think of our fried green beans recipe! Do you have a vegetable side dish that you love?? I’d love to try it and add it to our rotation….I am always looking for another winner!
