Best Air-fried Green Beans
Did you happen to get a new air fryer for Christmas? I’m hearing A LOT of our CFC Crushers, Challengers, and Community Members sure did (Thanks Santa!🎅), and now everyone is looking for good recipes!
Veggies are seriously the BEST in an air fryer…they’re fighting for my favorite spot #1 that is actually still roasted in the oven because I can fit more in the regular oven and I have a massive family. 😅 But to stay on track here, I do think that the texture, crispiness, and convenience of air fryer veggies win hands-down🏆.
These are EXCELLENT for a quick weeknight meal, and for meal prep! It’s common for me to (accidentally) eat half the pan because they are so crispy and addictive!
⭐Green Bean Foodie Fact: There are over 130 different kinds of pod beans on the planet (!!!) and green beans are one of the most popular.
They are low in calories, rich in vitamins and minerals, and have a mild taste that makes them popular … even with picky eaters.
Green beans are a great source of vitamins A, C, and K (important for a healthy immune system, good eyesight, and great skin).
They’re also rich in minerals like manganese, which supports a healthy metabolism and strong bones.
Plus, they’re a good source of folate, the B vitamin that helps prevent serious birth defects.
Not to mention they contain FIBER … which carries lots of health benefits for your digestive system, heart, and so much much!
👩🍳Eat them raw or cook them in many different ways, like blanching, steaming, or roasting in the oven and air-fryer. They’re also delicious in salads, stews, stir-fries, and soups.

Oh, we also have an awesome recipe for Air-fried Brussels that you’ll like.
- 1 lb fresh green beans, ends trimmed
- 2 tsps Herbs de Provence or Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsps olive or avocado oil
- sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- freshly chopped parsley or basil
Preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees f.
Place your trimmed green beans in a large bowl.
Add the rest of the ingredients and toss well to coat each green bean with the seasonings.
Transfer all the beans into your air fryer basket. I have a 5QT air fryer and they all fit, so no need to cook in batches.
Air fry at 350 degrees f. for 12 minutes, shaking halfway.
Sprinkle with freshly chopped herbs if desired.
Serve immediately or store in the fridge for meal prep for up to 5 days.
