Going Green - Green Bean Fritters

Fritter Chicks are Going Green! We wanted to share our recipe with y'all. Our cookbook is in the works but, in an effort to "go green", we had these for lunch and wanted to spread the love! In the South, we know how to pass the plate! Try it and let us know what you think. Also, if you have any recipes you would like to have featured in our upcoming cookbook, please send them to us!



2 cups fresh green beans, cut to one-half inch pieces and cooked until tender.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 cloves, pressed fresh garlic
Canola oil for deep frying


Heat oil in deep-fryer to 370°. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and garlic. In a separate bowl, whisk egg with milk; stir in beans. Add bean mixture to your dry ingredients, stir until moistened. Drop your batter by tablespoonfuls into your hot oil. Deep-fry in batches until golden brown. Remove and drain on brown paper bags.

Servings: 15 fritters, maybe a few more if you didn't sneak any before you served them!
