String Bean Bundle
PREP TIME: 30 Minutes

Right when you thought there was nothing new to do with green beans, here I come with a great new recipe. Try adding some of your own flavorings such as herbs or mustards to add a twist.


  • 1 pound fresh string beans
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 1 cup flour
  • pinch of thyme
  • pinch of basil
  • salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • egg wash (1 egg, 1 cup milk, 1 cup water, blended)
  • 2 cups oil
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

In a heavy bottom sauté pan, heat oil over medium high heat. Season flour with thyme, basil, salt and pepper. Place 6 to 8 green beans into a bundle and tie with the top of a green onion. Dip green bean bundles into egg wash, then into flour, shaking off the excess. Deep fry until golden brown. Remove to drain and keep warm. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over hot bundles and serve.
