Air fryer roast vegetables couldn’t be any easier. This quick and simple recipe for roasting vegetables in an air fryer has minimal prep and takes just minutes to cook.
How to Roast Vegetables in an Air Fryer
Try air frying for flavorsome tender roasted vegetables – you will never roast veges in your oven again.
All root vegetables are perfect for this recipes, I like to use potato, pumpkin, squash, sweet potato, carrot, and onion.
How to prepare vegetables for roasting
To prepare the veges, simply give them a good wash, and cut into 1 inch wide chunks. You can do cubes, fries, wedge shapes, or any shape you prefer as long as they are no thicker than around 1 inch.
You will want to pat the vegetables dry with a paper towel before you air fry them, as this allows them to start to crisp up as soon as they start cooking.
If they are not dry when they start cooking the surface moisture will need to evaporate before this can happen, which delays the crisping up process.
You can air fry them oil-less, but the more oil you use the more crunch you will get. I like to give them a good spray of oil, shake the basket and then spray again to ensure good oil coverage.
Seasoning for roast vegetables
You can also roast them with or without seasoning. Unflavored with just a little salt is one of my favorites, but you could try:
- Cajun spice
- Mexican spice
- Rosemary and thyme
- Cinnamon and nutmeg
To add seasoning, I usually just sprinkle it on top of the vegetables in the air fryer basket, then gently shake the basket to distribute it better over the veges.
If you want more even coverage you can also mix the oil, seasoning and vegetables together in a bowl before placing in the air fryer.
