Special Green Beans.

Because sometimes plain French beans just don’t cut it! This would be nice as an accompaniment to a roast for a change, or you could even replace your chips with them for a healthier meal.

Recipe adapted from Simply Scratch

2 packets green beans (or however many you want)
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
1 mugful breadcrumbs made from stale bread (3 or 4 slices would be plenty – I used the remains from gluten free loaf I’d made)
1 mugful finely grated strong white cheese (I used Cornish Gove, but Cheddar would be fine)
Salt and pepper

1. Heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Boil the green beans in salted water for 3-4 minutes, then drain and rinse in cold water to retain the bright green colour. Pat dry. 
2. Get your station ready! Mix the grated cheese and breadcrumbs together in a bowl, with a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Dip the DRY green green in the egg whites, then in the breadcrumb/cheese mix. Place on a baking tray.
3. Place the green beans in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the breadcrumbs are golden brown. Serve hot.
