Ingredients for Air Fryer Zucchini Chips

Grab these goodies from your pantry and fridge:

  • Zucchini: 2 medium zucchinis, sliced into thin rounds
  • Olive oil: 1 tablespoon to get those chips crispy (you know you love it)
  • Seasonings: Salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese for some cheesy goodness

Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Zucchini Chips

There is nothing better than some crispy chips, are we right? Here are some tips to make them perfect every time:

  • Pat them dry: After slicing your zucchini, use a paper towel to pat them dry. This helps them get that satisfying crispiness.
  • Thin is in: Slice the zucchini rounds as thinly as possible to get them extra crispy.
  • Even layers: Spread the zucchini slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket—no overlapping allowed!
  • Don’t forget to shake: Give the basket a good shake halfway through cooking to ensure even perfection.

Variations and Substitutions

Looking for a different zing? You can swap Parmesan with Pecorino Romano for a punchier cheese experience. If you’re dairy-free, nutritional yeast is a great substitute that’ll still give you that cheesy vibe.

Not into garlic? No worries! How about trying some onion powder, or even Italian seasoning for that herbaceous goodness?

If you’re feeling spicy, add a pinch of red pepper flakes or smoked paprika to the mix. For those who like it super fancy, a sprinkle of truffle salt can take these zucchini chips to a whole new level.

Got a different veggie on hand? Feel free to experiment with thin slices of eggplant or carrots—these work awesome in the air fryer too!
