Ingredients and Variations

Vegetables – Frozen vegetable medleys are pre-mixed, but you can mix and match vegetables that fit the main dish any time!

Dense veggies like carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, turnips, or radishes come out perfectly roasted, while broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, and Brussels sprouts come out sweet and tender.

Seasonings – Experiment with whatever seasonings, herbs, or spices are in the pantry! Buy a packet of taco seasoning, chili, or Italian seasoning, or create your own recipe! Stir in a little bit of honey, maple syrup, or brown sugar to add sweet caramelization to root veggies like sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and carrots.

Variations – Once the vegetables are cooked, add them to a large bowl and toss them with some parmesan cheese, then return them to the air fryer for a couple of minutes so the cheese makes them crispy and delish!

Tips & Tricks

  • Always preheat the air fryer so the initial blast of air can infuse the food with flavor while sealing the outside.
  • Cut vegetables to uniform sizes so they cook together evenly.
  • Avoid crowding the basket so the hot air can freely circulate the food.
  • Less is more when it comes to oil. Leftover bacon grease is a cost-effective alternative to oil and will add a smoky flavor to air fryer vegetables.
