Almond-Crusted Turmeric Green Bean Fries
Who loves veggie fries?
If you’re looking to get more vegetables into your diet in a delicious and creative way, consider vegetable fries.
Vegetable-based fries aren’t just for kids. I’m slightly obsessed with them myself, as you can see from these related recipes:
Three cheers for real, healthy, satisfying food!
Adding Turmeric To Your Daily Routine
I like to sneak turmeric into my meals whenever I can. This spice has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, which helps keep my back pain at bay. In addition to adding it to my food, I also take a supplement: Dr. Danielle Turmeric Curcumin with Bioperine
If you’re looking to up your turmeric intake, consider adding it to:
- Your morning smoothie
- Chili or soup
- Tomato sauce
- Salad dressing
Whenever you cook with turmeric, add some black pepper. This helps your body with absorption.
- 1 pound green beans (or haricot verts) with ends removed
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups almond meal (make your own by grinding almonds or buy prepared almond meal at Trader Joe's or elsewhere)
- Preheat oven to 400F. Coat a large baking sheet lightly with olive oil.
- Combine spices. Beat egg in a cereal bowl. Place almond meal in another bowl. Add half of the spice mixture to the beaten egg, and the other half to the almond meal.
- Place a few beans in the egg mixture at a time. Remove beans from egg batter and let excess batter drip off.
- Dip each green bean in the almond meal and place on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining green beans.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the coating is lightly browned. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce. (I mixed some sriracha sauce with mayonnaise.)
