What to serve with Air Fryer Roasted Vegetables
We love air fryer roasted vegetables as a side dish and they go with pretty much anything. On the side of grilled chicken or fish, or even a burger or pizza if you want a big pile of vegetables on the side.
If you are serving them up as a side, then a little bit of herb butter on top is delicious, or a sprinkle of red chilli flakes or chilli oil. A sprinkle of Parmesan cheese is delicious if you want something a little more indulgent.
These make a delicious veggie packed snack as well. We like to serve them with some pita strips and our Healthy Ranch Dressing to dip them in.
But they don't have to just be a side. You can use them as a pizza topping or stir in them into pretty much any pasta dish. They also make a quick and easy addition to our Roasted Vegetable Winter Salad.
You can cook pretty much any vegetables in the air fryer, which is what we love about this recipe so much. Just make sure that you are using vegetables that cook at a similar rate, or you will need to put them in at separate times. For example, root vegetables like potato and carrot will take longer to cook than the bell peppers.
Here is a list of some other vegetables that would work well in this air fryer roasted vegetables recipe:
- Potato (white or sweet)
- Butternut squash
- Brussels Sprouts
- Green beans
You can also adapt the type of seasoning that you use. We used a Mediterranean seasoning to air fryer vegetables in, but you could also use an Italian seasoning, Fajita Seasoning, a Cajun seasoning or any of your favourite seasoning blends.
Store: Any leftovers can be stored in an air tight container for up to 2 days.
Freeze: We wouldn't recommend freezing air fryer roasted vegetables, as they are a little soggy when defrosted.
Reheat: You can reheat them in the air fryer for 5 minutes.
