Vegan Green Bean Snack Crisps

Updated on March 17, 2016

Fresh Green Beans

Fresh green beans are most a delicious vegetable, tasting little like their canned cousins. They are high in many nutrients and vitamins.

These include:

Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Copper. Fresh green beans are a wonderful food to add for fiber, Vitamins K, C, A and Manganese.

They have very little sodium, and zeros saturated fat and cholesterol. Green beans also are a natural source of vegetable protein. Additionally, they contain Zea-xanthin which provides antioxidant support to the eyes and studies show may help to prevent Macular Degeneration.

Fresh green beans also are a great source of folates which are necessarily in early pregnancy to prevent certain birth defects.

Green beans taste great also. Baking or dehydrating them a low temperatures brings out the natural sweetness. Making them crisp satisfies the desire for crunch. These healthy snacks can replace crackers and chips which are high in calories and fat. Monsieur Doughboy says to enjoy them.

The ones I saw in the market for six dollars were still bright green and not shriveled but I just cannot figure out how they did that. Mine are brown and wrinkled no matter what I do to them. But they still taste great.


Fresh Food Makes a Difference

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 45 min
Ready in: 55 min
Yields: Enough to fill a potato chip bag

Ingredients

  • Fresh Green Beans, as many as desired
  • Olive Oil cooking spray, enough to coat beans
  • Salt, to taste
  1. Wash beans, snap off ends and remove strings is necessary. String-less beans work best.
  2. Lay on cookie sheet and coat with cooking spray.
  3. Sprinkle with salt.
  4. Bake at 350-400 degrees until crispy but not burned.
  5. Store in an airtight baggie or sealed bag.
  6. Keep in one layer. If piled up, green beans will steam instead of dry and will not be crunchy.

Monsieur Doughboy Is A Fan Of Green Bean Snacks

4.4 stars from 7 ratings of Green Bean Crisps

Monsieur Says...

  • Ovens vary so watch beans closely. Do not burn or overcook (they will be bitter.)
  • Do not undercook or beans will be chewy.
  • Sprinkle with garlic or onion salt for a different flavor.
  • Add a touch of ground red pepper for heat.
  • Use olive oil instead of cooking spray (this will add more calories).
  • Use a dehydrator instead of an oven but check often to prevent over drying.
  • I must be honest. These are a bit tricky. If overcooked they get bitter, undercooked and they taste great but are limp. It is a trial and error until you get it right in your own oven. I lowered the temperature in mine to 275 degrees when I made this batch.

    sgbrown, you have the perfect opportunity to make lots of these for the winter. Alas in my home they get eaten as fast as I make them. I do not eat chips either. They are wasted calories. I love nuts but like you want something different. These green bean crisps are a great snack food and are nutritious. Thank you for stopping by.

    Voted up, useful, and awesome. 5 stars as well from me Hyp. You do such a great job on your recipe hubs, so kudos. I must admit, I am not a fan of green beans. I know they are really good for you but I can't eat them. This gives me an idea though, I think they may taste better then regular green beans. My wife would love this for sure, she is a greens eating machine. If it is green, she eats it. LOL Another awesome job Hyp.

    Well, here goes....I'd rather have a raw apple or the raw beans. The pics looked great. But I'll go for the raw beans or the parboiled ones. These look too depressing to eat.

    I hope you don't kick me out of your hub for this. I don't mean anything by it. I just decided to "be real" about these beans. Maybe if you dropped me a few via FEDEX I would change my mind...but I don't think so.

    healthylife2, they, like most vegetables, are more nutritious when not cooked to a pulp. Fresh green beans are just one of God's gifts. I even wrote a Hub about it. Thanks for the votes and for sharing. I appreciate that.

    I have been known to eat these raw. I love fresh green beans. I detest canned ones. They overcook every vegetable that is canned. I like them just barely soft. I love them stir fried also. I will try this.
