Green Bean Fries with Spicy Garlic Aioli


Ok, I have to share this, it's a mom-brag, so just bare with me. Hudson is finally eating vegetables. Eating vegetables and loving them. It just took us almost 2 years, no big deal, right? Honestly, now that I know how he likes them, he is devouring several servings at a sitting. Broccoli (his favorite), cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and green beans. We have even started making double batches of our veggies at night because both kids have been loving them so much. Phew, I don't totally suck as a mom. 

I shared this recipe over on Love, Joleen, it is one of Hudson's new favorites. Enjoy. 


Green Bean Fries with Spicy Garlic Aioli

Green Bean Fries
4 cups fresh skinny green beans
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ cup finely shredded parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove, finely diced
¼ teaspoon sea salt
pinch of black pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Rinse and pat dry green beans, making sure that they are thoroughly dry using paper towels. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Toss green beans with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Place green beans on the prepared baking sheets, and evenly spread them out.

In a small bowl, combine parmesan cheese, garlic, sea salt and black pepper. Sprinkle the cheese mixture over the 2 trays of green beans.

Place green beans in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until they are golden brown. If they are not golden brown by 20 minutes, turn on the broiler and roast them for another 2-3 minutes.

Remove and enjoy with spicy garlic aioli.

Spicy Garlic Aioli
⅔ cup mayonnaise
1 large clove garlic, grated
2-3 tablespoons sriracha sauce (or another hot sauce of your liking)
salt and pepper to taste

Add all ingredients to a small bowl and mix. Start with 2 tablespoons of hot sauce and gradually add more to your liking.

Have leftover aioli? Use on your sandwich or burger, amazing! Hot sauce not your thing? No worries, just leave it out. Garlic aioli on its own is pretty fantastic.
