Fresh green beans in the Ninja Foodi are so easy you can make them on a weeknight, but they are so delicious you will want to serve them for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
- Green Beans: You will want to use trimmed fresh green beans. I do not recommend canned or frozen green beans when making green beans in the Ninja Foodi pressure cooker..
- Liquid: Use water or broth. The broth will add extra flavor, but water works just fine too.
- Butter: This adds a delicious richness to the green beans. You can also substitute with olive oil if needed.
- Seasonings: Garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper are all you need for simple and tasty green beans.
- Parmesan cheese: This adds a delicious salty and nutty flavor to the green beans. If you don't have parmesan, try using grated cheddar or another type of hard cheese.
Tips & Tricks
- The best way to store fresh green beans is in a loosely sealed plastic bag in the fridge..
- Try to select beans that have medium thickness. Larger beans tend to be bland and have a woody texture.
- Top with ½ cup of slivered or sliced almonds for an extra punch of flavor and texture.
- Green beans and bacon are a fabulous combination! Top your pressure cooker green beans with 4 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon if desired.
- Vegetarian? Make sure you use rennet-free parmesan cheese.
Green beans are a versatile side that works well with so many recipes. Some great options include:
