Fried Green Beans and Asparagus
We had fried green beans at a couple restaurants and I was thinking, why can't we make our own version and that's just what we did today, and oh are they good. Plus best of all we decided to make some Fried Asparagus too, use the same recipe Here is a batch of both cooked up for dinner. You need to try this recipe
What you need:
1 pound fresh green beans/ Asparagus
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 cups vegetable oil, or as needed
How to make it:
Bring a pot of water to a boil; cook beans in boiling water until bright green, about 2 minutes. Immediately transfer green beans to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain and dry beans with paper towels.
Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Pour flour into a bowl.
Whisk egg in a separate bowl.
Pour breadcrumbs into a bowl.
Coat green beans with flour; transfer to beaten egg and coat evenly. Press coated green beans into bread crumbs.
Fry breaded green beans, working in batches, in the hot oil until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer fried beans to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
We serve them with homemade Ranch dressing
