SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Fresh green beans: The fresh green beans may be replaced with frozen. To use frozen green beans, air fry for 12-15 minutes. Check the green beans at 12 minutes and adjust the cook time as needed.
  • Oil: I used olive oil in this recipe, but you may also use coconut oil or avocado oil.

RECIPE NOTES

  • Make sure not to overcrowd the air fryer basket. If the basket is too full, the green beans will not cook evenly. I love the size and functionality of this ninja air fryer!
  • If you prefer softer green beans, add a few minutes to the cook time. When making them for my little guys, I usually air fry the green beans for 9-10 minutes to make them more tender.
  • After removing baby’s portion, toss the green beans with a little salt to taste for everyone else!
