• 1/2 lb string beans, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt to taste


Bring salted water to a boil in a saucepan. Add trimmed string beans and cook over moderate heat until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes; drain and transfer them to a plate.

Beat two egg whites in a bowl or a beater until stiff peaks form. Add egg yolks, flour, and salt. Beat for a few minutes.

Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium high. Take a hand full of string beans; dip it into egg mixture, and place it in skillet in a single layer until lightly brown, about three minutes. Turn fritter over to lightly brown the other side.

Drain on a paper towel.

Serve with rice and fried plantains.
