Fresh Green Bean Fritters


Use fresh green beans to make these tasty fritters.


  • 2 cups fresh green beans, cut in 1/4-inch pieces and cooked until crisp-tender
  • (use both green and wax beans if you have them)
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • oil for deep frying


Heat oil in deep-fryer to 370°.
In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk egg with milk; stir in beans. Add bean mixture to dry ingredients, mixing until just moistened.
