Baked Bean Crisps

I had deep fried French beans crisps at P.F Chang restaurant a few months back. I really liked it so much that I wanted to try it at home. Just made some modifications. I baked these crisps instead of deep frying them. It makes a great evening snacks...:) Hope u enjoy eating this as much we did. What great way to eat the healthy beans? the healthy way ofcourse...:) and this is it.....:P


French beans - 1/2 pound

Thick Yoghurt - 1 1/4 cups

Sour cream - 1/3 cup (optional)

Salt to taste

Cheddar cheese - 1/2 cup (optional)

Pepper - 1 tsp (add to taste)

Lemon extract - 2 tsp

Cayenne pepper / Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp

Dried Oregano - 2 tsp

Bread crumbs - 4 cups

Oil spray


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Clean and cut the ends of the french beans. Steam the beans in a cooker or in the microwave till tender and well cooked. Keep aside to cool.

In a big mixing bowl add the Yoghurt and beat it well, until smooth and creamy. Mix in the sourcream. This just adds the tartness to the batter. You can skip it too and instead add some extra lemon extract..but caution! this will make the batter very watery....:)

Now add the grated cheddar cheese and mix well. Add all the other spices (except bred crumbs ) and mix it well until smooth and thick. (this mixture tastes great as a dip too...:P yummmmm!)

In a plate spread the bread crumbs.

Coat the steamed beans with the yoghurt mix and then roll in the bread crumbs. Place them in a cookie tray (baking tray) one by one. Spray the oil spray over the beans and bake them in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 mins or until the beans becomes lightly brown on top..

Your Bean Crisps are ready to be served...:) Serve hot with tomato ketchup.
