  • Air Fryer


  • 2 cups green beans ends trimmed
  • 2 tsp light olive oil or cooking spray
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F while you prepare the green beans.
  • Trim the tough ends off of the green beans.
  • Coat the beans in the light olive oil or the cooking spray.
  • Sprinkle the green beans with salt and italian seasoning.
  • Place in air fryer basket. Depending on the basket size, the beans may need to be done in two batches. Some overlay of the beans is okay.
  • Add basket to the air fryer and cook for 8-10 minutes or until the desired crispiness is achieved. Shake the basket every 2-3 minutes so that all the beans get evenly crisp.
  • Remove the green beans once done to your desired crispiness. Squeeze approx 1/2 a lemon or 1 tbsp of lemon juice over the green beans and top with parmesan cheese. Serve warm.


To reheat: Place back in air fryer at 350 for 2-3 minutes until warm and crisped back up.
