  • Cosori Air Fryer 5.8 QT


  • 1 lb Frozen Green Beans
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon Chili Flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Garlic
  • 1 fl. oz. Olive Oil


  • Put the frozen beans in a large bowl to be easier for you to mix the beans.
  • Pour over the beans the black pepper, chili flakes, dried onions, garlic and olive oil. Mix well all the ingredients.
  • Put everything in the air fryer in a layer not too thick for about 12 minutes at 400°F (200°C).
  • The green beans cooked in the air fryer are ready to be served.


  • You don't need to thaw the frozen green beans before cooking.
  • Remove and shake the basket when the timer on the air fryer will pass on half.
  • In the last minutes, check the beans regularly to get them exactly as you prefer them to eat.
  • Please take into count that the cooking time may differ from the quantity of the frozen green beans that you will put in the air fryer basket, from the size of the basket (the smaller size will cook faster) and the heating method also may differ from one air fryer manufacture to another. For this recipe, I used Cosori Air Fryer 5.8QT.
