Air Fryer Vegetables

Veggies in the air fryer make an easy (and delicious) side dish!

Air fried vegetables take about half the time as oven veggies and I find they caramelize better. Little effort with lots of flavor.

An Air Fryer Favorite

I feel like every air fryer recipe is my new favorite recipe, it just makes things so effortless and good! We air fryer veggies because:

  • they’re quick to prep and to cook
  • you don’t need as much oil as you would need with oven roasted
  • they caramelize better (which means more flavor)
  • this recipe is versatile, almost any vegetable goes

Ingredients and Variations

VEGETABLES The basics here are a colorful blend of bell peppers, mushrooms, and zucchini, which are perfect sides for entrées like Air Fryer Chicken or Air Fryer Salmon.

SEASONING Italian Seasoning, salt & pepper, and minced garlic make an amazing flavor combination. For something different, try a Cajun Seasoning or Greek Seasoning.

CHEESE Air fried veggies tossed in seasoning and Parmesan cheese…it just keeps getting better and better! Feel free to use any variety, though, such as feta for a Greek inspired version!

For Frozen Veggies

Frozen veggies work but they won’t have the same caramelization. Instead of pouring oil on them (which can freeze onto the veggies), try spraying them with cooking spray or oil.

Season and cook for 10 minutes in the air fryer. Remove the basket and toss them with parmesan cheese and cook another 4 to 6 minutes or until the veggies are tender and crisp.
