When I first saw this Baked Parmesan Green Bean Fries Recipe on Pinterest a few weeks ago, I was a bit skeptical. But since I adore french fries and am always looking for/experimenting with new recipes that offer a tasty and healthier alternative that is low in Weight Watchers Points, I decided to give this a try.

I know that the flavor of green beans can be very distinct, so I altered the original version of the recipe I found at Dashing Dish, a bit.

And I have to say, the end result was EXCELLENT!! The texture was a tad chewy than crisp, but the taste was absolutely delicious. I have only tried this recipe with fresh green beans….maybe the texture would be better with frozen? But I made this for lunch one day, sat down with some ketchup, and went to town on these babies. Seriously, they were excellent.

This healthy recipe is a wonderful way to satisfy my craving for gourmet french fries, but for so few Points. This has become one of my new favorite Weight Watchers Recipes, and I will be making it very frequently.

Try them with my Vegetarian Philly Cheese Steak for an amazing vegetarian Weight Watchers meal!

    For those that missed it, there is no oil in the ingredients list, but the directions to say to mist with oil. This is probably the reason ingredients didn’t stick for some and that there was problems with crisping.

  2. This dish was not good. The green beans do not crisp up at all. Pass on it people

    I don’t understand how this is vegan–it has Parmesan cheese in it! I am sure it is a lovely recipe–but it should be labelled vegetarian rather than vegan.

      Oops! My bad…I got a little overzealous when categorizing, and must’ve checked vegan! I’ll update it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
