Healthy RV Snacks: Wasabi Green Bean Fries


I am a HUGE sushi fan. And when I say huge, this is how bad it gets:  I’ll search the RV’s GPS for sushi, even when we’re in northwest Kansas, two thousand miles from the nearest ocean, in SUMMER.

But when you get right down to it, it’s not really the sushi itself that gets me excited. Heck, I let James pick all the rolls.

James: Should we try this sea eel and pickled plum roll?

Me: Sure! Why not?

James: What about this dried gourd and squid roll?

Me: Awesome! Bring it on!

James: Why can’t you always be this agreeable?

Which sushi rolls we get makes no matter, since it all tastes the same once I’m done slathering copious amounts of wasabi all over it. I don’t even mess around. When we initially place our order, I automatically ask for extra wasabi.

Yes, folks, I am a wasabi-holic. Those dried wasabi peas thingies? Love ‘em. Wasabi almonds? Oh, heaven. James says he wouldn’t be surprised if I secretly added wasabi to my breakfast cereal.

Since sushi itself doesn’t make a good portable snack for RVing, I have to find other ways to get my wasabi fix on the road. I’ve come up with a satisfying alternative:

Wasabi Green Bean Fries

Gather these ingredients:
Wasabie Green Beans Ingredients Recipe
  • 1 lb fresh green beans (trim the ends)
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1 ½ TBS sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons liquid aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons (or to taste) powdered wasabi

 

Recipe Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and dry the beans thoroughly. Toss them with the olive oil, sriracha, and liquid aminos (or soy sauce).Spicy Roasted Green Beans Recipe Ingredients

Roast them in the oven for about 30-40 minutes, stirring once about halfway through. NOTE: Make sure to watch them as it might take less or more time! Beans should get shriveled and lightly browned. If they get too dark, like black for instance, they start tasting bitter. Once they look shriveled and lightly browned, remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with wasabi powder.

It’s not necessary to serve your wasabi beans with extra wasabi. Unless you’re me.

These will keep at room temp with no problem for 3 or 4 days (a bit longer in the fridge), but good luck getting them to last that long. Bon appetit, fit RVers!
