Ingredients

  • 1 pound Green Beans washed and trimmed

FOR THE AQUAFABA MIXTURE:

  • 3/4 c Aquafaba (Brine from one can of drained chickpeas) amount is approximate
  • 1/16 tsp Cream of Tartar optional

TO COMPLETE THE BATTER:

  • 1 c All Purpose Flour just about any flour should work in this recipe
  • 1 c Sparkling or Seltzer Water beer would work even better!

FOR THE SRIRACHA MAYONNAISE:

  • 1 c Vegan Mayonnaise
  • Sriracha Sauce to taste

FOR SERVING:

  • Salt
  • Parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Drain a can of chickpeas, reserving all of the brine. You can use the chickpeas in a salad or for a variety of recipes on my site. Just type "chickpeas" in the search bar :)
  • Using an electric or hand mixer, start beating the brine and add 1/16 tsp of cream of tartar (if desired). You want to form soft peaks. Do not OVER beat.
  • Slowly add in the flour, alternating with the carbonated beverage of choice. You want a thin pancake batter consistency. I recommend testing the first batch of beans and if needed, thin with more of the liquid or to thicken, more of the flour.
  • Wash and trim the green beans adding a few at a time to the batter. Using a slotted spoon or spider, remove any excess.
  • Add a few at a time to a hot pan with neutral flavored oil for frying leaving space so they don't touch.
  • Don't attempt to flip until they move freely on their own when you move the pan around and are golden on the first side. Flip and repeat.
  • Remove to paper towels to drain off any excess oil and immediately season with salt. You only have seconds to get that to stick.
  • Meanwhile combine the mayonnaise and sriracha to taste.
  • Serve immediately.
