Hello friends and San Diego personal training clients! I just finished up dinner and it dawned on me that I should probably tell you about the awesome meal that I had.
Tonight we had grilled salmon burgers with a super healthy french fry alternative…green beans! I have to say that the green beans were my favorite part of the meal and a perfect alternative to french fries without the added grease.
Green beans are packed with fiber and vitamins A and C. But don’t buy the canned version that is packed with preservatives.
To cook my “green bean fries,” I first steam them over the stove-top. When they are 80% cooked, I remove them from the heat and set them aside. Meanwhile, on another burner, I heat up a skillet with olive oil. I add the 80% cooked green beans to the skilled and saute them, allowing them to cook the rest of the way through. Pan sauteing the green beans will also give them a great crispy texture. Add a bit of salt and pepper and voila!
So next time you are having burgers or a sandwich that call for fries, why not try green bean fries!
