How to Make Air Fryer Green Beans

The first thing you’ll need to do is prepare your green beans. You can buy them fresh or frozen; it doesn’t make much of a difference. If you’re using fresh, wash and cut off the ends. Pile all of your green beans onto a paper towel, and pat them down to dry.

Add just a tiny bit of oil or cooking spray to the air fryer basket so your green beans don’t stick once they’re done cooking. Add all of your green beans and give them a little shake so they’ll settle into an even layer.

Set the timer for 10 minutes, and let’em cook at 375°F. After 8 minutes, check your green beans to make sure they aren’t burning. Let them cook till the time is up. If the green beans are still hard, you may cook for another 2 minutes.
