Air Fryer vegetables Ingredients

When you make air fryer vegetables, you’ll need these ingredients:

  • Broccoli - You will want to use the broccoli crowns.

  • Colored Bell Peppers - When you cut them, try to make them about the same size as the florets of broccoli and cauliflower.
  • Baby Carrots - You could use regular carrots, cut to a shorter length and peeled, but that adds more work.
  • Zucchini - We cut the zucchini into half moon pieces.
  • Red Onions - When cutting, try to make them about the same size as other veggies.
  • Seasonings - We use both salt and Italian herbs seasonings.
  • Olive oil - You could use another light oil if you prefer.

 How to cut vegetables for air frying

When you cut veggies for the air fryer, you should keep in mind that size makes a difference. You will want to make sure the veggies are all roughly the same size in length and width. 

By cutting them to equal sizes, you can help ensure that they will cook evenly. 

Also, keep in mind size when you cut. If the veggies are larger, you will need a to add a minute or two to cooking times, but if they are smaller, you’ll need to reduce the cook time a bit.

Can I air fry frozen vegetables?

You can use frozen vegetables in the air fryer, but they won’t have as fresh a flavor. 

Also, you may want to defrost them first overnight in the fridge. Once defrosted, you should pat them dry with a towel to help prevent them from getting soggy. Finally, season them and fry them as described in the recipe. 

You’ll find that the frozen veggies tend to be softer, but they will still work as a tasty side dish.

How to store air fryer roasted vegetables

When you make roasted vegetables, you can easily store them in an airtight container. Before placing them in a container, allow them to cool completely and then place the container in the fridge. They should stay fresh for about 3 to 4 days.

If you like, you could freeze them instead. They should stay fresh in the freezer for up to 6 months. 

Before reheating, we recommend thawing any frozen veggies first. You can then place them in either the air fryer for a few minutes or in a preheated oven until they warm through.
