Tip

Depending on the freshness of your green beans, you could also spray them with olive oil at this step. Beans that have dried out over time will be more delicious with the added moisture.

Step 3

Move to a parchment lined baking sheet, allowing space in between every green bean fry. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes.
