I am woman enough to admit that my diet has never been perfect. I remember my mom used to pay me to eat vegetables when I was a kid. When I was a teenager, I remember being SO grossed out by vegetables and I didn’t know why my mom would torture me so.
It took me a really long time to not only understand how important it is to have vegetables as a part of a healthy diet, (or even a clean diet!) but it’s also important to know how to cook them to your liking. I’ve got a really great Air Fryer Roasted Vegetables recipe that is perfect and i’m sharing it today! (Plus: Don’t forget to download your free meal planner before you go!)
What I love about this recipe is that you likely have all of the ingredients in your freezer, pantry and/or fridge. The instructions are fool proof and the seasonings are perfect for any occasion.
Let’s face it, working with vegetables can be intimidating if you don’t know what you are doing. Thank goodness there are these little gadgets like Air Fryers, Slow Cookers and Instant Pots to make things a bit easier. I love how the right seasonings can transform any vegetable into amazing deliciousness!
Let’s face it, it can be hard to get the kids to love vegetables too. I am happy to report that this recipe is kid friendly! My kids love it on the sides of their meals and they don’t fight me (too much) to eat it.
How To Cook Vegetables In The Air Fryer
My air fryer has been such a God send! I am already such a fan of kitchen gadgets but my air fryer has changed the game when it comes to chicken, potatoes and pretty much everything else. I have made french toast, bacon, pork chops and so much more!
The best part about air fryer vegetables is that you can put these in the air fryer while you do your normal cooking on the stove. I’ve done it dozens of times! It saves so much time!
Here are the ingredients you will need:
1 cup broccoli florets
1 cup cauliflower florets
1/2 cup baby carrots
1/2 cup yellow squash, sliced
1/2 cup baby zucchini, sliced
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1 small onion, sliced
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Mix up all the seasonings, drizzle over the vegetables, roast and just like that you have a yummy side dish!
Can you put frozen vegetables in the air fryer?
You absolutely can! I am known for having veggies on hand in the freezer so feel free to use frozen broccoli, cauliflower etc. Just be sure to add 5-7 additional minutes to be sure that the veggies are cooked through. You can usually tell by how easily the fork pierces the vegetable.
Enjoy! And be sure to let me know how you like it in the comments!
