Fresh Green Beans in Air Fryer Ingredients
Fresh green beans: When buying green beans, avoid large ones. Choose medium sized and trim them. Make sure that you rinse the green beans before placing them in the air fryer basket.
Olive oil: In this recipe, I used some light olive oil. You can also use a cooking spray instead of olive oil.
Garlic powder and onion powder: These two ingredients will add a unique special flavor for Air Fried Green Beans.
Paprika: It gives a delicious flavor and a beautiful red color to green beans when air frying them.
Black pepper: It adds an authentic spicy taste to your green beans.
Salt: Add salt according to taste.
Fresh or Frozen Beans?
To prepare this recipe, I prefer using fresh green beans because they have a special delicious flavor.
However, you can make this recipe using frozen green beans. Thaw green beans out on paper towels, which helps in absorbing the excess liquid. After that, air fry them and add a few extra minutes to the cooking time to crisp further.
You can also place frozen green beans in the air fryer for 5-6 minutes. Once thawed, toss them in the seasoning, and give them one last fry in the air fryer for 3-5 additional minutes to crisp further.
Tips and Tricks
To make Green Beans Air Fryer crispier, dip in an egg, and then in Panko breadcrumbs before air frying the green beans.

If you love heat, you can add chili powder to your green beans before you air fry them.
