Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:10 minutes
Total Time:15 minutes
Yield:2-4 servings 1x
1poundfresh green beans, trimmed
1/2 tablespoonextra virgin olive oil
Scant 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
1/4 teaspoonblack pepper
Optional: flaky salt and lemon wedges for serving
Preheat. Preheat your air fryer to 390 degrees.
Season green beans. Place the green beans in a large bowl and toss with olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the top and toss to ensure they're evenly coated.
Air fry. Place the seasoned green beans in your air fryer in an even layer. If you have a smaller air fryer, you may need to air fry the beans in two batches. Air fry at 390 degrees for 8-10 minutes, then remove and serve immediately! Option to sprinkle a little flaky salt (I love Maldon flaky salt) and a squeeze of lemon before serving - highly recommend!
Green beans: The final texture of these beans is like a perfectly roasted, slightly crisped bean. They're delicious, but they're not like french fries and they're not extra crispy (because they're not breaded).
