Vegan Parmesan Crusted Green Beans

Today we're creating a basic element to build a Thanksgiving plate, year-long healthy snack, perfect anytime-side dish, and a vegan parmesan recipe bonus. Call them green beans or string beans, but you've never had them this yummy or healthy before. See how to make a super simple parmesan cheese, and crust the greenies to vegan cheesy perfection. A quick roast and you're well on your way to eating the best stuff of life, glorious plants!


What you need:

3-4 Cups Rinsed, String Beans (edges trimmed)

2 T. oil

3 T. water


For the Parmesan:

3/4 Cup Almonds (walnuts, cashews, and other nuts work great too)

3 T. Nutritional Yeast

3/4 tsp. Sea Salt

3/4 tsp. Garlic Powder


What you do:


Preheat oven to 400°.


Make parmesan by combining all ingredients in a blender or food processor. (careful not to over mix so it doesn't turn into nut butter!)


If you have a few minutes and the gumption to dredge (as shown in video) - do it for a more even coating: mix the oil and water, coat each bean and then roll in the parm mixture. Lay on an oiled or parchment lined baking tray.


Otherwise, pour and mix the oil/water mixture over the green beans, lay them on your tray and generously coat with the parmesan.


Roast for 10 minutes! That's it...
