Ahh the humble green bean. Quite possibly the easiest veggie to prepare. Whether you wanna make them roasted or blanched, or use frozen or canned, green beans are easy as pie to add to meals and are arguably the one veggie that goes with just about anything.
But if we’re being totally honest… green beans can get a bit boring after a while, am I right?
Well luckily, I have just the recipe to make them exciting AF. Introducing these green bean FRIES with everything bagel seasoning. Yep. You heard that right. Not only are we making green beans crispy and delicious like yummy french fries but we are also adding my FAV seasoning of all time.
So throw away everything you thought you knew about green beans because we are giving them a serious glow up!

Why This Recipe Works
These green bean fries with everything bagel seasoning are no joke. They pretty much hit all of my criteria when it comes to a tasty side dish. These green bean fries are:
- Made in under 30 minutes!
- Only requires 6 ingredients
- High Protein (6 grams per serving)
- High Fibre (6 grams per serving)
Green Beans – we use fresh green beans because they get super crispy and hold flavour very well. While we have never tried this recipe with canned or frozen green beans, you can totally try it out if you have that on hand. But keep in mind that it might alter the texture and flavour profile.
Dijon Mustard – instead of an egg wash, we keep things super simple (and vegan) by using dijon mustard instead. The dijon also gives it a delicious spice and depth of flavour – all my dijon mustard loving folks know what I’m talkin about 😉
Nutritional Yeast – we add nutritional yeast to the dry mixture because not only does it bump up the protein content, but it also adds a delicious cheesy flavour too. If you don’t need to make this vegan, you can also use dry parmesan cheese instead.
Everything Bagel Seasoning – If you live in Canada like me, everything bagel seasoning is often hard to come by. But not to worry! I got you covered with my homemade recipe which combines white and black sesame seeds, salt, dried onion, dried garlic, and poppy seed (see recipe below).
How to Make This Recipe
Step 1: Prep the green beans but washing them and cutting off the hard stems.
Step 2: Prepare the everything bagel spice by mixing together the seasonings. Set aside.
Step 3: Toss the green beans in flour to lightly coat them.
Step 4: Add dijon mustard to a shallow baking dish. In another baking dish mix panko, nutritional yeast, and everything bagel seasoning. Toss the green beans in mustard and mix till it is evenly coated. Then dredge it in panko bagel seasoning mixture, pressing to coat.
Step 5: Place the green beans in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, or until golden and crisp.
If the green bean fries are not as crispy as you want them to be, you can also broil them for 3-5 minutes at the end of their cook time. But make sure to watch the oven because broiling can go from crispy to burnt real quick!
They should last in the fridge for about 3-5 days. I would recommend reheating them in the oven or toaster oven for a few minutes so they stay crispy.
I think these taste totally delicious solo, but they would also taste super yummy with a side of sriracha mayo or a honey mustard yogurt sauce like this one here.
Yes 100%. My toddler devoured these green bean fries! They are also a super fun way to feed your little one veggies along and they also have a healthy dose of protein and fibre.
You can purchase everything bagel seasoning at Costco or Trader Joes (if you live in the US). You can also purchase some online here. Otherwise, you can make it from scratch (see recipe below).
