Tips for air frying vegetables-
Prep your vegetables-
You’ll want to use the freshest veggies you can get for best results. Make sure to chop the vegetables into equal sized pieces so that they cook evenly.
Don’t overcrowd the air fryer-
When you’re making veggies in the air fryer you’ll want to make sure they have room. Air fryers work by circulating hot air throughout so space between the pieces is important. Make sure to arrange the veggies in a single layer and leave space for air flow. Crowding the basket can lead to uneven cooking and can result in some vegetables being overcooked while others are not cooked enough.
Air frying tender vegetables
When air frying tender veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts, it’s important to preheat the air fryer to 375°F (190°C). Chop the veggies to your desired size and consider drizzling with oil for a roasted flavor. Add them to the air fryer in an even layer and cook for 10-15 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice during cooking for even results
Air frying firm vegetables
When it comes to air frying firm vegetables like carrots, beets or potatoes, it’s important to cut them into smaller pieces so they cook evenly. The recommended size is between 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch. It’s also important to preheat the air fryer for a few minutes before adding the vegetables. This will ensure they crisp up nicely. And don’t forget to shake the basket or flip the vegetables halfway through cooking to promote even browning.
Air frying frozen vegetables
Air frying frozen vegetables is quick, easy and healthy. To start, preheat your air fryer to 375°F and prepare the basket with non-stick cooking spray. Toss your frozen vegetables in olive oil, Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Add the vegetables to the basket and cook for five minutes. After flipping them, continue to cook for an additional 4-6 minutes until done to your liking. Serve immediately. Note that different air fryer models may require slightly adjusted cooking times.
