Vegetables In Air Fryer
One of my favourite foods to cook in the air fryer is vegetables. Or cooking fish or meat at the same time as veggies. Such as air fryer frozen salmon and green beans.
But of course, some veggies are easier than others to air fry.
For example, it’s a fine balance when cooking frozen broccoli in the air fryer that you cook it in the middle and don’t burn the outside. And then when it goes wrong you want to scream at the air fryer or the recipe you followed, as you wonder what went wrong.
However, Mediterranean veggies in the air fryer is so much easier, taste amazing and you will want seconds and thirds and to buy these veggies every week.
Today I am going to run through with you why roast Mediterranean veggies in the air fryer are the best, and work very well for beginners to the air fryer or those that just want easy vegetables for mealtimes.

Can You Air Fry Leafy Greens?
Yes, you can air fry leafy greens and the benefit with them is that they are fast cooking in the air fryer.
Can I Put The Meat And The Veggies In Together In Air Fryer?
Yes, you sure can and I love to cook meat or fish at the same time as the veggies. You just have to take into consideration the cook times of both types of food.
For example, if you are cooking steak and vegetables and the steak takes 8 minutes and the veggies take 12, then you will want to air fry the veggies first for 4 minutes and then add in the steak, so that it will be ready at the same time. Or I recommend you choose meat and veggies with a similar cook time.
Can You Use Air Fryer On Mediterranean Diet?
Yes, you sure can and I recommend doing so. We spent 13 years living in Portugal and was surrounded by the great food of the Mediterranean, 9 of those years was as an air fryer user.
We loved the air fryer for the great veggies, the amazing chicken and veggie recipes and also for air fried chickpeas.

Though I find the best vegetables to air fry are Mediterranean veggies as they are fast cooking, and it doesn’t take much effort to cook them in the air fryer.

Roasted Vegetables Air Fryer Ingredients
Veggies – What I recommend the most is one of those supermarket packs of veggies. You then have no prepping of the veggies and can load them into a bowl and then season, oil and air fry.
Seasoning – This of course is personal choice, but any Italian/Mediterranean seasoning mix will work well.
Oil – You will also need a small amount of extra virgin olive oil. I recommend 1tbsp for a big portion of Mediterranean veggies.
Then for the kitchen gadgets that we have used in air fried veggies recipe it has just been our Philips air fryer. We have this one and its wonderful for many types of air fryer recipes.
Plus, we recommend you head over to our air fryer recipes category as we have more than 500 tried and tested air fryer recipes and have been air frying for 10 years.
