Healthy Hacks: Oven-Baked Green Bean Fries With Garlic Aioli

Summer’s just around the corner and that means that healthy eating is more on the mind than ever. While we’re allllll about a good ‘ol basket of crispy french fries, sometimes we crave a healthier alternative that won’t put us in a food coma for five hours. Cue, oven-baked green bean fries! These are baked to cut out oil and covered with a scrumptious cornbread stuffing that adds a whole new dimension of flavor. Enjoy!


Ingredients:

– 2 cups green beans, washed and dried

– 1 bag of cornbread stuffing

– 1 egg, beaten

– 1/4 cup light mayo

– 1/4 cup greek yogurt, plain

– 3 cloves garlic, minced

– 2 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

– 1/2 tsp salt

– 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

You knew you needed a reason to buy stuffing in April… ;)

First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Then, crush the cornbread stuffing with a rolling pin until it becomes like a fine dust/powder. Dip your green beans in the egg, then roll in the stuffing. Lay on wax paper to prepare for baking.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the green beans are a golden brown.

While you’re baking, prepare the aioli! Mix together all the ingredients and let sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Serve together.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
