You don't have to pull any strings with these beans! Roasted String Bean Snacks!

Another vegan, healthy snack for everyone!  And I mean everyone!  Yes, that means you too, meat eaters!  Light and crispy with a combo of sweet and salty.

You can find these at grocery stores, but if you make them yourself it comes about to be about a quarter of the price!  The other benefits of DIY-ing these babies is that you can control the calories.  The ones you can by in the store tend to be a bit on the oily side, increasing the calories by almost 2 times the amount.  I like to use a small amount of oil...just enough to coat the beans.

These are obviously great as a snack, but also try them broken up into smaller pieces and mixing them in with a salad!  This will give an extra texture to any salad and definitely add a fun little element to it!

4 cups green beans (cut off ends, rinse and pat dry)
evoo (just enough to lightly coat beans)
himalayan salt
garlic powder (optional)

preheat oven to 400.  Toss green beans with evoo and seasoning and bake on cookie sheet 30 minutes.  Make sure to stir frequently.  Remove them when they are crispy.

An easy, delicious recipe with no strings attached!!!  Snack away!
