Ok, I’m guilty. In these ten years in the U.S., I never made these green bean fritters… the horror! They are so classic in Chile. My favorites are cauliflower, and my husband hates it, so I erase it from my mind.
Now, green bean fritters are back, and I hope they will stay on the weekly menu. These are delicious. When I was cooking, my child saw them, asked if I was making veggie burgers, and agreed to try them! As you can see, it is a relatively simple recipe. Add chopped chives or green onions and change the whole wheat flour for regular flour.

- 800 grams of green beans
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup grated cheese optional
- oil, salt, and pepper
- chopped green onions or chives, optional
- Wash beans and pat dry. Cut the ends and chop lengthwise (french style). Boil salted water in a pot. Add the beans and cook for 3 minutes or al dente. Drain and place in a bowl with ice water to set the color and stop the cooking. Leave for 5 minutes and drain.
- In a bowl, place cooked beans, flour, eggs, cheese, and green onions using salt and pepper. Stir with a fork or hands until well blended.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. If you throw water droplets, they should dance and evaporate almost immediately. Reduce heat to medium. Add one tablespoon of olive oil, place a generous scoop of green bean mixture in the pan, forming patties and cook for 5 minutes. Turn and cook for 5 minutes more.
- Remove to a plate lined with paper towels and continue with the rest of the mixture.
- Serve hot or at room temperature.
