You know what’s awesome? Making veggies taste fantastic with minimal effort. Roasting vegetables in the air fryer will make you fall in love with them all over again. Trust us, it’s shockingly simple.

We love how the air fryer turns ordinary veggies into something extraordinary. The veggies become crispy outside yet tender inside. Speed and simplicity win with this recipe. Think about how quick it is—perfect for when you’re juggling a million things.

So grab your veggies and get ready for some seriously tasty eats. Who said healthy can’t be delicious?

Ingredients for Air Fryer Roasted Vegetables

Keeping it straightforward, here’s what you need:

  • Veggies: Grab your favorites like carrots, zucchini, bell peppers, broccoli, and cauliflower.
  • Olive oil: Just a drizzle to give those veggies that golden perfection.
  • Seasonings: Let’s keep it classic with salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Feel free to get a little crazy with some rosemary or thyme if you’re feeling fancy.

Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Roasted Vegetables

  • Cut evenly: Make sure your veggies are cut to roughly the same size for even cooking. No one likes burnt bits, right?
  • Don’t overcrowd: Give your veggies some breathing room in the air fryer. Overcrowding them will make them steam rather than roast.
  • Shake it up: Halfway through cooking, give that basket a good shake to make sure everything roasts evenly.

Variations and Substitutions

No broccoli? No problem. Switch it out for Brussels sprouts or sweet potatoes.

Turn up the heat with a dash of chili flakes or some smoky paprika. Feeling adventurous? Go for a splash of balsamic vinegar for a sweet and tangy kick.

Prefer butter over olive oil? By all means, toss those veggies in melted butter before roasting.
