  • 12 oz washed and trimmed green beans (I used a package that was prewashed and pretrimmed)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt or more or less to taste
  • teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or more or less to taste


  • Combine the green beans, olive oil, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.
  • Toss to incorporate the ingredients. Add to the air fryer basket and shake to distribute evenly (insert the crisper tray first if your air fryer has one).
  • Air fry at 375° F for 8-10 minutes depending on your preferred texture and level of browning.



I used a Ninja Max 5.5 qt. air fryer. If your air fryer does not have a 375° F setting, set it to 380° F.
