Ingredient Notes:

For the full list of ingredients and amounts, please go to the recipe card below.

  • Green Beans – As I mentioned above, you can use traditional green beans or purple or yellow wax beans.
  • Garlic Powder – The majority of spices are gluten free, but I highly encourage you to always read the label just in case.
  • Olive Oil – I like to use virgin olive oil, but you can use regular or any light oil.
  • Italian Seasonings – I use a pre-blended mix, but you can make your own using 1/2 teaspoon of basil, thyme, and oregano.

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

Washed green beans in a collander.

Step 1: Wash your green beans in cold water. Use a colander so the extra water runs out. Place the green beans on a cutting board and cut off the stems.

Step 2: Place the beans into a large bowl. Sprinkle on the Italian seasonings and salt. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat.

Step 3: Place the green beans into the air fryer. I used a Ninja Foodie Air Fryer, and it had two compartments so I filled both so the green beans had more space.

Step 4: Cook the green beans at 375º F for 10 minutes. Store leftovers in an airtight container in your refrigerator. To warm them up, you can heat them in the microwave or pan sauté them.

Hint: If your air fryer is really full, open the air fryer at 8 minutes and use tongs to toss and stir the green beans so they cook evenly. Cook an additional 6-7 minutes.

Serve them hot with this delicious Grilled NY Strip Sirloin or this Grilled Halibut with Pesto Sauce.

Bake them in the oven:

You can still make this delicious dish without an air fryer! Preheat your oven to 400º F. Prepare the green beans the same way, but place them on a sheet pan. Bake for 25 minutes until done.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can you use frozen green beans in the air fryer?

You can use frozen green beans in the air fryer, but they will turn out a bit mushier and will not roast and caramelize the same way. This is because of the extra water in frozen green beans.

Why did the roasted green beans turn out tough?

This shouldn’t be the case, and it mostly happens if the green beans are picked too late. They are more fibrous as they get older on the plant.

Can you freeze the roasted green beans?

You can freeze these roasted green beans, but they will be slightly different in texture when you reheat them.

How long will these air fryer green beans keep fresh?

These green beans should keep fresh for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
