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.
