  • 1/2 cup lite coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3/4 cup Homemade Breadcrumbs *see notes

  4. Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.

  10. Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping the fries over once halfway through cooking, or until browned and crisp.
