Easy Air Fryer Vegetable Recipe

  • Air-fried veggies come out tender and crispy, caramelized on the outside using minimal oil and with minimal clean-up!
  • Nearly any veggie can be added to this recipe, even a bag of frozen vegetables can be used. Add extra time to frozen veggies since they will create steam as they thaw before turning crispy brown.
  • Cook in batches and use all week in salads, soups, and main dishes. Make up some frozen portions for future stir-fries, breakfast casseroles, and Taco Night.
  • The air fryer makes cooking veggies a cinch. Thread them on skewers to make kabobs before air frying to make an impressive picnic or party side dish!

VEGETABLES: Zucchini and bell peppers are colorful and delicious and make everything from beef fajitas to sausage pasta ravioli quick and easy!

Feel free to experiment with other veggies like onions, mushrooms, halved brussels sprouts, broccoli or cauliflower florets, and carrots.

SEASONING: Pre-packaged Italian seasoning keeps this recipe easy, but make a batch or two of this DIY blend and have it on hand all the time! Store homemade seasoning mixes in a jar with a tight-fitting lid in a cool place for up to 6 months.
