> 12 oz whole green beans, trimmed
> 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
> 1 large egg
> 1/4 cup cold water
> 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
> 1/2 tsp onion powder
> Dash of cayenne pepper, optional


Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, egg and water. Place panko crumbs on a plate. Dip green beans into batter, allowing excess to drip off, then dip into panko crumbs, coating evenly. Place beans in a single layer on prepared baking sheets. Bake for about 20 minutes, until crumbs are golden and crisp. Remove from oven and sprinkle with onion powder.
For zesty fries, sprinkle very lightly with cayenne.
