How to Cook Frozen Green Beans in Air-Fryer?
If you can't find fresh green beans and all you could find is canned or frozen green beans. Then don't get disheartened. I will tell you how to make Crispy Green Beans in Air-Fryer using frozen green beans below.
- When you have frozen green beans, make sure you rinse them with water for about a minute. This brings them back to a normal temperature and they'll be ready for use. Wondering how to do that?
- Step 1: Place your Frozen Green Beans in a strainer.
- Step 2: Take this strainer under a Faucet or Tap. Open the Faucet and let the water run through the green beans. Rub the green beans with your hands with the Faucet open. And, in about a minute, they will look like fresh green beans.
- Step 3: Coat these Green Beans in Olive Oil. Season it with Garlic Powder, Salt, and Pepper.
- Step 4: Air-Fry these Green Beans after keeping them in your Air-Fryer Basket. Air-Fry it at 400F for about 12-13 minutes.
Keep in mind that since they are frozen green beans so they will need to be cooked for a longer time to get that crispy texture.
Tips to Make this Recipe Effectively:
- If you are using Frozen Green beans then cook for a longer duration. You might have to Air-fry your Green Beans for about 12-13 minutes.
- If your Air-Fryer is 1500 watts like mine then 10-minutes is enough to cook 1 pound of Green Beans. If your Air-Fryer is 1700 watts then it will need much less time.

Crispy Fried Green Beans in Air-Fryer
- 1 Pound Fresh Green Beans Trimmed
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
- 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
- Salt and Pepper As Per Taste
- Coat Green Beans in Olive Oil. Season with Garlic Powder, Salt, and Pepper and coat your green beans evenly.
- Finally, Put these green Beans in an Air-Fryer Basket. No need to layer the basket with wax paper or parchment paper. In case your Air-Fryer needs to be Preheated then you can do so. Or else Air-Fry these Green Beans at 400F OR 200C for 10-minutes. If you are using Frozen Green Peas then Air-Fryer for an additional 2-3 minutes or until crispy. Shake midway at the 6-minute mark for an even crispy coating on both sides.
- Do Not forget to shake your Air-fryer Basket midway. Shaking it will ensure even coating on all sides.
- Do Not grease your Air-Fryer Basket with Non-Stick cooking spray. It will damage the non-stick coating in the basket.
- No Need to spray oil on the green beans before cooking them in the Air-Fryer.
- Check the crispiness and then adjust the temperature. Different Air-Fryers work differently. For example, a 1500 watt Air-Fryer like mine needs just 10-minutes at 400F to Air-Fry 1 pound of Green Beans. Now, a 1700 watt Air-Fryer would need much less time.
