There are two types of people in the world. People who love veggies and people who hate veggies.

Most people start off as veggie haters and then they grow up and turn to veggie lovers – especially when we’re talking about roasted vegetables! Our air fryer roasted vegetables will convert just about anyone, I’m pretty sure. 😉

We’re doing air fryer vegetables today and I chose veggies that are colorful, have varying textures, and are just lightly seasoned. This makes the dish look good, smell good, and taste good! The trinity of a great side dish, if you will.

I am a huge fan of this recipe, and often make it when I am cooking on the grill or have meat cooking in the oven for a long time. Makes for an easy, healthy side dish!

Serve these with our air fryer frozen shrimp and it’s basically the easiest dinner ever!

Ingredient Notes:

Various vegetables spread out on a counter.

Brussels Sprouts- We need two cups for this recipe. When shopping for your sprouts, find some that are firm with leaves that are tight.

Bell Peppers – We use a mix of red and green, but feel free to use any color you like.

Squash – We use a mix of yellow crookneck squash and zucchini.

Yellow Onion- When cutting your onion, we like larger chunks. Makes it easier to pick around them for the onion haters and gives a nice bite for the onion lovers. However, if you see onions as your worst enemy, take the onion you just bought at the store toss it in the air, and hit it with a baseball bat.

Seasonings- We will use olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and a bit of Italian seasoning.

How to Make Vegetables in an Air Fryer:

Chop – Start by cutting your sprouts in half. Next, you can chop your peppers into one-inch pieces. You will want to remove the core and seeds from the peppers before cutting them into chunks. Chop your zucchini into chunks. I slice them into thick slices, then cut those in half. Lastly, chop your onion and add all of the vegetables into a mixing bowl.

Season – Drizzle the veggies with oil and sprinkle your seasonings on them. Toss or stir this together to coat your vegetables in the seasoning.

Cook – Pour your vegetables into an air fryer basket and cook it for 10-15 minutes at 375 degrees F. The cook time will be dictated by the texture you prefer. Shorter times will make them more firm, longer times will make them softer. Either time you chose, shake the basket every five minutes while cooking.

We’ve only tested this one with fresh veggies. I’m sure you could use frozen veggies, but I’m not sure how the time would change and the veggies obviously won’t taste quite as good as fresh.

I’ve have cooked many of your recipes and have not been disappointed. I use my air fryer a lot. This is the first time I have written a comment. I tried an oven recipe for roasted vegetables in my air fryer. It turned out okay. I had all of the vegetables you use in your recipe except brussels sprouts. I used broccoli and sliced fresh mushrooms. They were a nice addition to the recipe. I all for any recipe that is simple and fast to prepare.
