Healthy Air Fryer Green Beans
I don’t know about you, but lately, I have been really into making veggie side dishes in the air fryer. I can’t get over the crispiness and the delicious flavor of an air fried vegetable.
It’s as easy as it gets- with even less cleanup time!
One of my recent favorite sides to make is air fryer green beans. Not only does this have a delicious flavor, but green beans are incredibly nutritious. They are full of vitamin C and K, as well as a healthy dose of fiber.
So, air fryer green beans are good for you and yummy. What’s not to love?
Plus, green beans are an amazing low-carb option when it comes to picking out a side dish for your meals.

How To Make Air Fryer Green Beans
Before you start cooking your green beans, take a moment to properly clean them to get rid of any dirt or pesticide residue left over. Then place the green beans in a bowl with cool water to fully rinse them.
Once they are fully clean, pat the green beans dry and trim the end off of each bean strand.
Toss them with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper. If you want to season them up a little more, add a dash of cayenne pepper and garlic powder.
Place prepped green beans into the air fryer basket and cook at 400F for 10 minutes. Make sure to shake the basket halfway through so that the green beans cook evenly throughout.
