Have you ever made crispy white beans? They are such a great snack idea that I learned about from @halburns on TikTok. You can use canned beans too but the texture is much better if you start with dry beans, plus less gas! 😉

    What is the purpose of the nutritional yeast and is it necessary to soak the beans?

    1. Yumna says:

      It adds a bit more flavor! If you use canned beans you do not have to soak them. If you cook them from dry, yes, you should soak the beans before cooking.

    A Tasty and healthy snack

    1. Yumna says:

      Happy you enjoyed them!

  3. Vero says:

    I don’t oven an air fryer. Could you give oven directions please? And thank you…

    1. Yumna says:

      Hi there, I have not tried these in the oven yet myself, but I think you could roast them on a rimmed sheet pan in a 450˚F oven for about 15 minutes, stirring them halfway through cooking, until crisp.

  4. Marie says:

    Do can canned white kidney beans work the same?

    1. Yumna says:

      You can use canned beans too but the texture is much better if you start with dry beans, plus less gas!

  5. Jeanne says:

    After you soak the beans, how do you cook them before putting them into the air fryer? Details please.

    1. Yumna says:

      Hi there! I sometimes cook them in my instant pot using the “beans” setting, but you can also cook them on the stove top. Add the soaked beans to a pot and cover with water by 3 inches. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for about 80 to 100 minutes, or until tender.
