Do you have an air fryer?

I just got one a few weeks ago, and while I'd heard rave reviews about it, I couldn't really think of anything I wanted to try to make so I let it sit for awhile.

After a month of looking at the air fryer, thinking it hadn't really earned its counter space, I tried frozen chicken in the air fryer one night when I was in a hurry. It was PERFECT! I was so excited that I immediately started air frying all the things.

Then I made the mistake of letting my older girls use up our potatoes to make french fries, and it was game over. I barely get to use it now. 😁

While the kids enjoy their healthy, homemade fries, I know that as a Trim Healthy Mama those are to be an every-once-in-awhile treat, not a constant staple – so I eat these air fried green beans instead. And man, are they GOOD!

The Air Fryer

I made a teeny mistake when I bought my air fryer. I got one like this, and while it is SO super cute, it's definitely better for 1-2 people; not 6. It's on the smaller side which means I need to cook everything in batches.

If I had to do it over again, I'd get a bigger, family-sized 6 quart one like this:

What You'll Need

Aside from an air fryer, you'll need:

º fresh green beans (I like hericot verts – the long, skinny green beans)
º olive oil cooking spray or coconut oil cooking spray
º mineral salt (my favorite is this high quality 12 oz. bag for just $4.99 from the Trim Healthy Mama store)
º freshly ground black pepper

    4. Place green beans into a mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper.

    The ends of the green beans will start to brown once they are fully cooked.
