How to Easily Roast Root Vegetables in an Air Fryer

I was intrigued when I heard about a kitchen machine that had the ability to fry and roast different types of food with little to no oil. I had seen a few reviews of different machines, and just like all kitchen appliances out there, some did better than others when it came to turning out crispy goodness.

Roasting root vegetables without oil was the first thing that came to my mind when I unboxed my new air fryer. I was imagining mounds of french fries, air-fried ravioli, and another favorite, roasted root vegetables𠅊ll done with no oil.

Can you roast root vegetables without oil? The answer to that question is yes, you sure can. The great thing about it is when you use an air fryer, the vegetables turn out crispy, flavorful, and delicious.

Instant Pot Vortex Air Fryer Vegetables

Roasted vegetables in the Instant Pot Vortex is crazy simple. Just take you veggie of choice and toss them in a bit of oil and season them. I like to use salt, pepper, and a bit of garlic or onion powder. Sometimes I use seasoned salt and pepper instead of regular. Then put the vegetables them in the basket and rotate them on air fry at 380 degrees for about 18 minutes or until browned.

You can also use the roast setting, which really does the same thing, it just has different presets.

If you do not have a Vortex, simply use your standard air fry setting and basket or tray. Give the veggies a turn or stir a few times during cooking.

How to Air Fry Tender Vegetables

Any quick cooking veggie will fall into the Tender Vegetable category. These are great for busy weeknights when you need to get a vegetable on the table! It includes veggies like:

  • Crucifers (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts)
  • Soft Veggies (like bell pepper, tomato)
  • Thin Veggies (like asparagus)

To cook tender vegetables in an air fryer, preheat your air fryer to 375 degrees F (190 C). Prep your veggies by chopping them to the size you want, optionally drizzling with oil (this will make them a bit more roasted tasting in the end). Add to your air fryer in as flat of a layer as possible and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, shaking the air fryer pan once or twice during cooking to promote even cooking.

Air Fryer Tools

You&rsquore going to need an air fryer (duh&hellip). I have the Power XL air fryer, but other great options are Cosori and Ninja.

If you are interested in using your air fryer for more than vegetables (and you should!), you will want to invest in an accessories pack like this one from Amazon.

Using a Misto is a great way to lightly spray veggies with olive oil to get the perfect crisp on your food.

The Mealthy CrispLid works with any 6 or 8-quart electric pressure cooker on the market. I have one and it rules.

Air frying begins

Now that your veggies are completely prepped and seasoned, it's time to air fry. First, line your air fryer basket with a piece of parchment paper. "This step is quite important as most things tend to stick to the tray unfortunately," recipe developer Susan Olayinka explains.

While you don't have to arrange the vegetables in a specific way, there is one ground rule to follow: make sure the basket isn't too crowded. When a pan of any sort is too packed, you risk the food steaming instead of roasting. If you happen to be doubling this recipe to air fry veggies for a crowd — or if you have a smaller air fryer — work in batches so everything cooks up the way it's intended.

You'll be air frying at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. About halfway through the cooking process, give the veggies a toss so that every side gets evenly cooked.

How to Make Roasted Carrots and Potatoes in an Air Fryer

This is a super easy recipe. You&rsquoll only need a pound of red potatoes, a pound of carrots, some olive oil, and a handful of spices. I&rsquoll run you through it below and cover a few ingredient modification notes as we go. You&rsquoll find a full recipe card at the bottom of the post if you want to jump ahead.

Toss sliced carrots and diced red potatoes in a tablespoon of olive oil and air fry for 15 minutes at 400ºF.

In case you can&rsquot tell from the photo above, you can get away with imperfectly sliced carrots and potatoes here. Aim to keep the potato slices around the same size as the potatoes, and you&rsquoll be perfectly fine.

As a quick air fryer note, I use a 301 model Ninja Foodi (6.5-quart) for air frying. If you&rsquore using a smaller or larger air fryer, you&rsquoll probably need to slightly adjust the cook times.

Use the photo below to get an idea of what your potatoes and carrots should look like after air frying the first time. You&rsquore looking for some wrinkling on the potato skins and some browning around the edges.

You want your veggies to be mostly cooked and fork tender before adding a little extra olive oil and the seasoning blend. There&rsquos no harm in extending the time in the air fryer by a few minutes in this step if you&rsquore unsure about them being done.

Mix smoked paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, dried oregano, ground thyme, and sugar together in a small bowl.

This is a similar spice blend to the one I used for my cajun seasoned Ninja Foodi sweet potato fries with a few minor tweaks. Smoked paprika is not very spicy, in my opinion. But if you wanted a more mellow flavor, you could cut the amount in half.

Another option might be something like the garlic parmesan route I took with my air fryer carrot fries or air fryer red potatoes. The seasoning blend is really your oyster&mdashget creative!

Toss the air fried potatoes and carrots in another tablespoon of olive oil and coat in the seasoning blend. Air fry for an additional 10-12 minutes at 400ºF.

Be sure to get all the goodies left in the bowl on top of the potatoes and carrots once you put them back in the air fryer basket. After the 10-12 minutes back in the air fryer, you&rsquore looking for some caramelization on the carrots and crispy edges on the potatoes.

As long as you avoid burning the seasoning blend and sugar, you could extend the air fryer time by a few minutes. Or if you&rsquore using a Foodi&mdashbroil for a few minutes for extra crispy carrots and potatoes.

Once you get them just right, toss with a bit of parsley and serve them up!

For the best results we recommend you remove the skin of the potato before cutting into cubes. However, you can try leaving the skin on the potato. If you do this you will likely find better results if you do not preheat the air fryer and instead, put them in first, then start heating up the air fryer.

Yes, with care, but they are best served fresh. If you do freeze them, the main thing here is to flash freeze them. After you finish cooking them, quickly get them spread out on a baking sheet and get them in the freezer. Leave them there for two hours, then remove them and place in a freezer bag for continued storage.

You can heat them in the air fryer at 375 degrees for 4-5 minutes or until warmed through.
