My friend Maureen and I recently went out to dinner to celebrate her birthday and we had a wonderful panko-crusted green bean appetizer that we both loved. The restaurant fried their green beans and served them with a flavorful aioli sauce that was fantastic. I decided to recreate a much healthier version at home by baking my green beans. They turned out wonderful! They were crisp and crunchy on the outside without being greasy and the green beans were perfectly tender on the inside. I served them with a simple soy garlic aioli sauce made from mayonnaise, garlic, and soy sauce. This dish is best served fresh from the oven. My entire family gobbled these up with dinner and we loved them.
