Air Fryer Frozen Green Beans
Do you like green beans? I never grew up with them on the dinner plate and developed a love for them in my 20’s. Whenever they were on a special discount, I would buy them and serve them for dinner with pork chops or with salmon.
Then I moved to Portugal and the fresh traditional green beans are either ridiculously overpriced or not available and I turned to frozen green beans instead.
Just as good as fresh, but without any prep work at all, plus they taste amazing when you cook frozen green beans in the air fryer.
Today I wanted to show you how to cook frozen green beans in the air fryer that are so good that my green beans hating husband loves them.

How Long To Cook Frozen Green Beans?
It takes JUST 13 minutes to cook frozen green beans in the air fryer. Isn’t that fantastic? That’s from the point of throwing frozen green beans from the freezer into the air fryer and having them to eat on a dish.
We do recommend two different cook times though. As one is for cooking your green beans and the second is to add a bit of a crisp to them and turning them into an amazing veggie side dish that fussy eaters will eat.
