When I first burned 'em to the pan, I had nothing but Dawn and plenty of patience. I had used a jelly roll pan (the kind with sides), so I squirted a little Dawn on it, used my sprayer hose thingy to fill the pan with water and let it soak overnight.

If I'd had a good scrubber, I probably would have destroyed the pan, though.

What a brilliant idea, KB! That would save me loads of money on parchment paper, too!

My experience with fresh green beans

I tried them first in the oven on a light baking pan and they shrivelled up to almost burnt, ate em anyway. I read that frozen is best, who knows.. and mine certainly werent pleasingly crispy.

I tried something else, shook some fresh green beans in with some olive oil, put in a ceramic long dish and popped into microwave, expected them to suck. Cooked them on hi for 15 mins, then took em out, drained off excess oil (important) and put em back in for 10 mins. Ima tellin ya, they were crispy, light brown and green, not as ugly as the ones I did in my convection oven, and THIS is how I expected them to taste. Oh my! No catsup/ketchup needed!

I'll never do them in the oven again.

I should add that if you put too many in the dish, they don't turn out right, I did about the equivilant of 2 layers of beans, covering the bottom, then another layer.

I tried them and didn't like them at all. Just tasted like overcooked green beans.

I also have to say that I don't try and replicate carby foods in low carb forms. I think if I really have to have a french fry or sweet potato fry, I'll just have some and get it over with.

I have perfected a cooking time that works for my oven. Each oven is going to heat differently so you have to work at it a little bit to see what works for you.

I cook them for a total of 1 hr at 275 (mixing them around after the first half hour). Then I crank the temp up to 325 and cook for about another 15 min. The slower cooking seems to mean fewer burned ones for me.

I just line the cookie sheet with foil before cooking and clean up is easy!

Hello everyone,

Yes they are good. And why not just regular green beans? Very tasty too! I hope your meal was enjoyable. You have probably eaten this meal already....

Silpat is a cooking mat often used in place of parchment paper. Resistant to heat, easy to clean and available at grocery stores, cooking supply stores and the like. Every baker needs at least one!

See, now that sounds more like it. I remember eating something like that at PF Chang's once, but they were partially coated in tempura. Deeeelicious.

This recipe sounded so good to me that I immediately called my DH on his cell and asked him to pick up a big bag of frozen green beans! I'm trying this recipe right away!!!

Green Bean Fries

Ok, I'm new (again) to Atkins, and have been spending tons of time here reading recipes (and making myself hungry!!). This sounds WONDERFUL, but I can't seem to find LONG frozen green beans - just the short, cut ones. Will this still work?

I can't wait - going to make sugarfree ketchup too!

Thanks!

A word of warning. You can get a lot of carbs this way. I love these things, and they reduce down to little yummy crispy bites. But remember that all that has gone away is the water. Ten of those yummy bites has 2 grams of carb. Ten disappear REALLY fast. Weigh out your total recipe, calculate the total carbs and divide them up into reasonable portions that won't blow your carbs out of the water. There are about 24 grams of carb in a pound of green beans (after deleting the fiber) That pound reduces down to a good sized handful of crisps.

I personally can't stand these. They taste like burnt green beans. So incredibly nasty. I'm glad they work as a snack for some people, but it must be an acquired taste.
