Why these air fried green beans work:
- They cook so quickly in the air fryer. All you need is 10 minutes!
- Italian seasonings taste incredible with the roasted green beans.

- Using the air fryer means you can use the oven for cooking other things. I love to air fry foods and have a lot of easy gluten free air fryer recipes!
- Green beans - As I mention 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 ½ teaspoon of basil, thyme, and oregano.
Recipe step by step directions:
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.
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.
If you don't have an air fryer, you can still make this delicious dish! Preheat your oven to 400º F. Prepare the green beans the same way, but place them onto a sheet pan. Bake for 25 minutes until done.
Tips and Recipe FAQ:
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.
This shouldn't be the case, and it mostly happens if the green beans were picked too late. They are more fibrous as they get older on the plant.
You can freeze these roasted green beans, but when you reheat them, the texture will be a bit different.
