Can you cook green beans in an air fryer?
Yes you can cook green beans in an airfryer.
Do you have an air fryer? I’ve got three. Do I need that many? Yes, I use them for one of my jobs. Haha! Do you need three? One is probably enough for a single family household.
What is the air fryer good for?
Literally all kinds of food! I cook fish, chicken, and bacon in it. My meat I prefer cooked on the grill though. I also cook all the veggies in it, and it’s FANTASTIC for making home made churros or French fries.
Hot tip: cook a hot dog in it then sprinkle with celery salt. So good y’all.
How to make crispy green beans
So here’s the trick to making your own crispy air fried green beans:

- Toss into your air fryer
- Serve immediately
Yes, it’s that easy. And yes, they taste significantly better than they look.
- 12 ounces fresh green beans
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2+ teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4+ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- Other seasonings if desired
- lemon wedges for serving
- Preheat an air fryer to 380ºF.
- Prepare the green beans by trimming their stems and cutting larger ones in half so they are relatively equal in size, if needed.
- Place the cleaned trimmed green beans in a large bowl along with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
- Transfer the green beans to the air fryer and shake the basket to make sure they're in a single layer. You may need to cook in two batches. Cook until crisp tender, shaking the basket halfway through, for 8-10 minutes total.
- Squeeze fresh lemon juice on top (optional), and
- Serve immediately.
