Air Fryer Green Beans – No Oil!
If you’re looking for an easy, healthy vegetable side dish, then you’ve got to try these Air Fryer Green Beans. You don’t need any added oil to make them crispy and delicious. Make this recipe in 15 minutes!
The normal way to make crispy green beans is to cook them with a lot of oil on the stovetop. In this air-fryer method, you just need a quick spray of nonstick cooking spray (just a very quick spray!) to get super crispy, perfectly cooked and tender green beans. This healthy side dish goes great with your favorite cooked protein.
This Air Fryer Green Beans recipe is gluten-free, paleo, vegan, vegetarian, and Whole30-friendly.
Wash and pat dry your green beans. Trim the ends off and cut them in half, if you wish. Place the green beans in your air fryer basket and give them a quick spray with nonstick cooking spray.
In most cases, a “quick spray” means that you’ll have a negligible amount of added oil on the beans. It is mostly to keep them from sticking together and will help create a little bit of browning.
Set the temperature to 375°F for 10 minutes. You can shake the air fryer basket once during the cooking process, but you don’t have to. I cooked mine for 10 minutes straight and they were perfect!
Use tongs to transfer your cooked green beans to a serving bowl. Squeeze half of a lemon over the top and serve warm.
