Make the best side dishes and vegetables with this list of Easy Air Fried Vegetables!
Almost all vegetables can easily be prepared in your Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi, I have tried so many and we almost always make an air-fried vegetable every single night to pair with our dinner!
The summer months are the perfect time to use the air fryer, it cuts down on heating up your house and you will likely have lots of fresh produce this time of year too!
Are air-fried vegetables healthier?
The general idea is that if you air fry vegetables, then you are using very minimal oil by just spritzing the vegetables with oil spray, so yes overall they can be much healthier.
The thing to keep in mind is that if you use dipping sauces such as ranch dressing then that may offset the health benefits.
What are the benefits of Air Fried Vegetables?
Preparing vegetables in the air fryer is extremely simple and quick. It’s a great alternative to getting that fried texture and flavor without actually having to use a quart of oil.
They are also better for you if you stick to an oil spray and not cups of oil.
Can you air fry frozen vegetables?
Frozen vegetables are very easy to cook in the air fryer, they are great with a nice coat of cooking spray and a little bit of salt.
This list will be a mix of fresh and frozen, but mostly focusing on preparing fresh vegetables.
Can you put foil in your air fryer?
Many of these recipes use foil in the air fryer to create a basket to cook the vegetables on. This is acceptable in an air fryer; however, you want to remember a few things.
First, be sure to keep the foil rolled up on the sides to be sure that air can still circulate.
Secondly, make sure the foil is weighted down with food before air frying so that it does not blow around and hit the heating element.

Remember that if the recipe says “Ninja Foodi” it will work the same way in your Air Fryer as it does in the Ninja Foodi.
