A Healthier Alternative to French Fries

Delicious, Healthy and nutritious fries that you can eat and enjoy guilt-free. And they’re baked to absolute crisp-perfection! Not to mention these fries are super addicting! After removing them from the oven I immediately helped myself to about three servings.

Baked Green Bean Fries

INGREDIENTS:

1 C. Italian seasoned Progresso Breadcrumbs

1/2 C. grated Parmesan cheese

1/8 tsp. Pinch of cayenne pepper

1/8 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. black pepper, to taste

1 1/2 green beans, trimmed

1/2 C. all-purpose flour

2-3 large eggs, beaten

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

1. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside. In one large shallow bowl, stir together Panko, Parmesan and cayenne pepper; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside. In a second bowl add the flour and in a third bowl add the eggs

2. Working in batches, dredge green beans in flour, dip into eggs, then dredge in Panko mixture, pressing to coat. Place green beans in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake for ten-twelve minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.

Taco Popcorn

Taco Popcorn

Ingredients

2 Tbsp coconut oil

3/4 C popcorn kernels or depending on your preference

1/4 C melted butter unsalted

1-2 Tbsp Penzeys taco seasoning or your favorite

1/4 tsp berbere seasoning, optional

1/4-1 tsp salt to taste, optional
Directions

1. In a large saucepan or dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Combine one kernel of popcorn and cover the pan with a lid. Once the kernel has popped, place all of the kernels in the pan and put the lid back on the saucepan. Shake the pan to coat the kernels with oil.

2. Shake the pan constantly as you start to hear kernels popping (this prevents burning). When the popping slows down significantly, remove the pan from the heat.

3. Pour the popcorn into a large bowl and drizzle with the butter. Sprinkle with the taco and berbere seasoning and salt and toss to combine.

Court’s Cooking Notes:

If you have a popcorn maker, then you can skip steps one and two. But please be cautious when preparing your popcorn and carefully read the directions that came with your appliance. Have fun and enjoy!
