Air Fryer Asian Green Beans
When my sister Laurel got a new Air Fryer, we had fun testing recipes and came up with these super-easy Air Fryer Asian Green Beans! And if you like Green Beans with Asian flavors, these are really a winner.
Air Fryer Asian Green Beans are a fun recipe idea I worked on with my sister Laurel! A few weeks ago I spent several days in Houston visiting Laurel and her thoughtful husband Carl, and while I was there I kept telling Laurel about how much I love my Cuisinart Convection Air Fryer Toaster Oven (affiliate link). Then we were out shopping and found a good buy on the same model I have, and Laurel took one home!
Of course we had to try out the new Air Fryer, and when we found green beans in the fridge we experimented and came up with this quick and easy way to make green beans with Asian flavors. Laurel and I gobbled them up for a snack, and when I got back home I tried out the recipe with Kara so I could perfect it to share with you.
Of course not everyone has an Air Fryer or wants to buy one, so if you like the idea of Asian Green Beans but don’t have a new Air Fryer, just make The World’s Easiest Garlicky Green Bean Stir Fry instead; those beans are also ultra-delicious!
Which Air Fryer Did I Use?
When Air Fryers started to be a thing, I bought a NuWave Air Fryer and used it to make Air Fryer Spicy Sweet Potato Fries. Then I discovered the Cuisinart Convection Air Fryer Toaster Oven which is the one I used for this recipe. This air fryer has a larger basket, which lets me fit plenty of food, and I find this model very easy to use. I also like the convenience of having an air fryer that stays out on the counter.

How to Make Air Fryer Asian Green Beans:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe with nutritional information.)
- Trim ends of the green beans and then cut each one in half. (Regular thickness green beans are best for this recipe, not thin “French-Style” beans.)
- Whisk together soy sauce, peanut oil, and sesame oil to make the cooking sauce.
- Toss beans with the sauce until every bean is well-coated with sauce.
- Use a slotted spoon (or your fingers) to put beans in the Air Fryer basket, leaving the extra sauce in the bowl.
- Cook beans at 400F/200C for about 10-12 minutes (but check them, Air Fryers cook differently.)
Serve hot and enjoy!
