How to make air fryer vegetables:

First, preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees. It is ok if your air fryer does not have a preheat option. Just let it run for 5 minutes at 350 degrees to warm up the air fryer.

Second, put all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl so that you can thoroughly coat the veggies with the olive oil and seasonings. You want all of this seasoning to get on all of the veggies.

Finally, place the veggies in the air fryer and cook for 10 to 12 minutes.

I like to toss the veggies half way through and continue cooking until the veggies are the desired tenderness that you prefer.

How to store:

If you have any leftovers, refrigerate them inside an air tight container for up to 4-5 days.

Variation ideas:

  • Try any type of veggies that you like. More ideas include: red onion, brussel sprouts, green and red bell peppers and mushrooms. In the Fall, I like to use butternut squash and sweet potatoes. Dice this and sprinkle with olive oil and a little paprika for a side dish.
  • Top with Parmesan Cheese before serving. Kids will love this idea on roasted veggies!
  • Seasoning- mix things up and try different seasonings. I love garlic so I always add extra to my veggies. My kids like a little dry ranch seasoning mixed in.

Tips:

  • Make sure to shake the veggies half way through the cooking time. This will ensure they are cooked evenly and each veggie is crispy and browned on the outside. To me, this is what makes them so delicious. I love the texture!
  • Make sure you have a good air fryer. I have this air fryer and it is perfect for our family.
  • Try new things! Use the veggies that are in season and in abundance at the Farmer’s Market. It is totally ok to switch things up and use what is available to you. That is the beauty of this recipe. It is so easy to adapt to what you have on hand. It also makes it so fun to try new things.
