Air Fryer Vegetable Recipes
These easy vegetable recipes are made fast and crispy in the air fryer! There are SO many benefits to using the air fryer. It’s faster and uses less energy than the oven, so you’ll save money. Using the air fryer helps free up the oven for other dishes, making holidays, parties, and large gatherings easier. You also can get crispier food without using as much oil as traditional frying, so your foods may be healthier, too!
The air fryer is AMAZING to reheat pizza and make quick frozen taquitos when you’ve got a craving, but that’s not all. It’s also the best thing to happen to vegetables since the invention of cheese! Potatoes come out perfectly tender
Which vegetables work best in the air fryer?
The air fryer is the best thing to happen to vegetables since… I don’t know, since cheese was invented. Potatoes become perfectly tender–fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside. The tips of broccoli, asparagus, and cauliflower get that great char you love while the meaty parts soften just right. Squash, mushrooms, zucchini… So far I haven’t found a vegetable that doesn’t work in the air fryer!
Can I cook frozen vegetables in the air fryer?
Yes, frozen veggies can work just as well (if not better) in the air fryer! It’s usually best to NOT thaw your vegetables, which saves you time and makes it easier prevent mushiness. The hot, circulating air is perfect for getting rid of excess moisture that often makes frozen vegetables soggy.
What is the best air fryer for vegetables?
This is a tough question because there are a lot of great choices! There are also some vegetables or recipes that benefit from different features, so it’s ultimately up to your preferences.
- Buckets – This is the classic style that became so popular. These are super versatile and, in my experience, a bit quicker than air fryers with racks. I find these super convenient for chopped veggies and other recipes that call for you to shake during cooking. You can even get dual baskets so you can cook two different recipes at two different temperatures at the same time!
- Racks – If you cook for a crowd or like to meal prep, these might be the best for you. These are often larger and can fit more stuffed mushrooms or baked potatoes than most basket air fryers.
- Rotisserie baskets – These are fantastic for even cooking of fries, tater tots, and similar frozen, fried foods! They often come with skewers for the rotisserie as well, so you can get the perfect cook on veggie kabobs without lighting up the grill.
