Do air fryers make food crispy?

They look crispy, right? While you won’t get the extra crisp you’d expect from a deep fryer, the air fryer works to move extremely hot air around your food. This process does create a slightly crispy outer edge on these parmesan green bean fries. If you want to have a crispier texture, you’d have to use more oil but that would change the nutrition facts for this recipe.

Do green beans go bad in the fridge?

It’s important to use fresh green beans for this air fryer low carb keto-friendly parmesan green bean fries recipe. You’ll find that green beans can stay fresh in the fridge, but they do have a lifespan of about two weeks in the fridge. If your green beans have gone bad in the fridge, you’ll see that they’re mushy and stringy. Your green beans won’t go bad in the fridge until a couple of weeks have passed, so just be sure to use your fresh green beans to whip up this keto-friendly appetizer within two weeks of buying your fresh green beans.
