READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by mightyro_cooking4u

This is a spinoff of Giada De Laurentiis' recipe "Vegetable Fritto Misto. She used four kinds of vegetables. I decided just to use one. These taste a bit like peanuts.

I made a mistake frying these on the stove instead of the deep fryer, they kept exploding on me! I also made a mistake with the cayenne pepper.....I thought it might be too much so I cut it down some......the beans seemed a little bland. Otherwise, they were good. If I make them again I will definetely use more cayenne. Made for Best of 2012 cooking game.
