Did you buy an air fryer but aren’t quite sure what to do with it? Don’t fret, because you can use it to make almost anything, including some delicious air fryer vegetable recipes.
Making vegetables in the air fryer is a little bit different than making meat or a pre-made snack in the air fryer, so you’ll want to look up some recipes before you begin. We’ve done most of the work for you, however, and have put together this amazing list of the best air fryer vegetable recipes for you and your family to enjoy.
What Vegetables Can Be Air Fried?
Before we begin, you probably have a few questions about using your air fryer for vegetables. The first of which is what vegetables you can air fry.
The good news is, you can air fry almost any vegetable you please. But there are some veggies that hold up better than others in the air fryer. Below is a list of vegetables that taste great when prepared in the air fryer.
- Summer Squash
- Red Peppers
- Brussel Sprouts
- Sweet Potatoes
- Green Beans
Of course, this isn’t all the vegetables out there, and chances are, no matter what vegetable you pick up at the store, it should be safe to put in an air fryer.
What Cannot Be Cooked in an Air Fryer?
Although most vegetables do well in an air fryer, there are definitely a few that will not taste so great after spending a few minutes being air fried.
Because of the way air fryers cook by circulating air, they do better cooking more dense foods. This means very thin foods will cook unevenly or even burn. While there aren’t many thin vegetables out there, they do exist, and they should not be put in your air fryer.
Vegetables that shouldn’t go in an air fryer:
- Romaine Lettuce
If one of these veggies was on your ‘must try in the air fryer list’ don’t despair, as there are some ways to air fry these vegetables when they are prepared properly, or mixed in with another dish. Just note that they should never be placed in an air fryer as is.
Is Air Frying Vegetables Healthy?
Vegetables are a healthy food group that provides you with much of the vitamins and minerals you need to survive. But what happens when you cook them in an air fryer, are they still healthy?
Generally speaking, if you were planning to deep fry your vegetables, cooking them in an air fryer instead is healthier, as it cuts the calories by 70-80%. Additionally, air frying is great for the nutrition retention of vegetables.
That being said, raw vegetables, with no cooking at all, are still considered to be healthier than air fryer vegetables. But for those planning to cook their veggies anyway, the air fryer is a healthy method to choose!
How to Air Fry Any Fresh Vegetable
Below are some fancy air fryer vegetable recipes for you to try. But, with an air fryer, you can pick up and fry any vegetable you want at any time as a side for any dish! Here’s how:
Step 1: Choose Your Veggie
Pick the veggie that you want to cook in your air fryer. Remember that thicker, crunchy veggies work best. If the veggie you pick is on the larger size, you will want to take some time to chop it into more manageable pieces.
Step 2: Preheat the Air Fryer
Preheat your air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit or 190 degrees Celsius.
Step 3: Prep the Veggies
Veggies in the air fryer will taste differently depending on what you put on them. Drizzling them with oil will make them taste more roasted. Alternatively, you could put salt and pepper on them. Whatever you choose, add that now.
Step 4: Air Fry Your Veggies
Add your veggies to the air fryer in as thin of a layer as possible. Spreading them out will help them to cook more evenly. Set your air fryer for 10-15 minutes, pausing to shake the air fryer 1-2 times during the cook time.
And voila, you now have some delicious air fryer veggies to go with any dish!
How to Air Fry Frozen Vegetables
For those that live a busy life, sometimes it can be difficult to keep fresh vegetables on hand and use them before they go bad. Luckily, frozen vegetables can be just as tasty, especially when you prepare them in the air fryer.
Plus, when you put frozen vegetables in the air fryer, this dries them a bit while cooking, meaning the final result will taste as if the veggies started out fresh. Air frying frozen vegetables really is the one of the best tricks to pull out of your sleeves when you are short on time and have guests to impress.
Step 1: Do Not Defrost
Most people are used to defrosting frozen vegetables before they cook them. Do not do this. Cooking them in your air fryer directly from frozen really will yield the best results. Leave them in the freezer until you are ready to toss them in the air fryer.
Step 2: Preheat the Air Fryer
Preheat your air fryer to the same temperature as you would if the veggies were fresh. Which is generally 375 degrees Fahrenheit or 190 degrees Celsius.
Step 3: Spread Your Veggies Out
Once your air fryer is preheated, it’s time to dump in the veggies. For best results, keep the vegetables in a single layer if you can. Set your timer for 15 minutes.
Step 4: Season Halfway Through
Because the veggies are starting frozen, you can’t season them before you put them in. Therefore, about halfway through the cooking time, you should pull out the tray and toss in any seasoning you would like to add. Salt and pepper are recommended. It is also a good time to give the veggies a shake to ensure even cooking.
Step 5: Add Extra Time
After the timer goes off, take a look at your veggies. Sometimes, frozen vegetables need a little extra time than fresh vegetables. If you look and think that your veggies aren’t quite done, then pop them in for another 2-5 minutes just to be sure.
Just like that now you’ve got a delicious vegetable side dish, and they’ll be so crisp and fresh tasting no one will even know they were frozen to begin with!
How Does the Air Fryer Make Vegetables Taste Better?
If you’ve used the above two sets of instructions to air fry vegetables for your family, you are probably now asking yourself how it is possible that the air fryer actually makes vegetables taste better?
The answer is quite simple, an air fryer uses convection to circulate the air around your food. The process also removes some moisture from your food naturally, giving those veggies the extra crunch you desire.
That is why frozen vegetables taste fresh when cooked in an air fryer—because the air fryer naturally removes the excess water that tends to be present in vegetables that have been frozen.
