Green Bean Fries with Spicy Basil Ranch
Bailey Farms hot sauces are all natural and of the highest quality. Unlike other sauces that are mostly pepper-vinegar, they are a blend of chiles and fresh vegetables that are cooked down to perfection and deliver the perfect balance of heat and flavor.
For the beans:
4 cups of green beans, ends trimmed
1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
2 Tbsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 1/2-2 cups panko crumbs
1/2 cup soy milk
For the dip:
3 Tbsp. basil leaves
2 clove garlic
1/2 cup light ranch
1-2 tsp. Bailey Farms Jalapeno hot sauce, to taste
Steam beans for 3 minutes over boiling water, and then immediately run under cold water. Pat dry.
Preheat oven 425F.
Combine flour, nutritional yeast, paprika, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in one bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg and soy milk. Place panko crumbs in a third bowl.
Dredge beans in flour mixture, then egg mixture, then panko crumbs. Arrange in a single layer on a nonstick, aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until panko crumbs are slightly brown and beans are tender. Serve with dip (see below).
Blend garlic in food processor. Add remaining ingredients and blend until combined. Adjust hot sauce, to taste.
