Can I Use Frozen Green Beans in My Air Fryer

Yes, you can use frozen green beans in your Air Fryer. It will make your beans slightly soggy in texture compared to fresh but let me say the flavor is still spot on!

How Easy Is It to Use The Ninja Foodi

The Ninja Foodi is so simple to use, just like the Air Fryer! Both the Foodi and Fryer have the option to hear your food with high heat that circulates around the food. Giving you a crispier texture but without all the grease.

I found making my green beans this way offered more texture to the green beans which elevate the flavor.

Could I Make Garlic Butter Green Beans In Oven

You could make these green beans in the oven or a skillet on the stove. The flavors will be similar, but not exactly the same.

Follow the same temperature and cook time that is below for cooking in the oven. Then just watch to ensure your beans don’t overcook.

Are Air Fried Vegetables Healthy

Air-fried vegetables can be healthy, it all depends on the ingredients you use. Since I am using butter in the recipe, it isn’t the healthiest of all. But when you enjoy these beans in moderation that is key!

How to Store Leftover Garlic Butter Green Beans

If you have leftovers consider placing them in an airtight container and placing them in the fridge. These beans will store in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. I will note the texture will change slightly and they will become more tender.

Best Way to Reheat Garlic Green Beans

You can warm your beans up on a skillet on the stove or even in the microwave.

What to Pair With Garlic Green Beans

Green beans are versatile, so pair with chicken, pork, steak, or even seafood!
