Honestly, should we all just marry our air fryers at this point in life?

When you don’t have time to cook but want to eat something healthy, it’s saving the game with things like air fryer asparagus or air fryer pork tenderloin.

You could even make breakfast a snap with air fryer hard boiled eggs.

But, air frying roasted vegetables, like roasted air fryer cauliflower, has to be my most favorite way to use the air fryer because it cuts the cook time WAY DOWN.

How to make Air Fryer Zucchini


Using a cutting board and a sharp knife, slice the zucchini into rounds and place them in a large bowl. Add the oil and salt and toss until everything is well coated. 


Place the prepared zucchini in the mesh basket of your air fryer and cook. Once you’ve cooked about 10 minutes, flip the zucchini slices and repeat cooking on the other side, until they are golden brown and cooked to your liking.

How do you cook Zucchini so that it doesn’t get Mushy?

By cooking your zucchini in the mesh basket of an air fryer, it allows for the air to circulate all around the slices. This helps the water to evaporate, the zucchini to crisp up, and helps it to cook well instead of getting mushy.

Serving Suggestions

I love enjoying zucchini in air fryer as a snack, but it’s also a fantastic side dish because it pairs really well with all sorts of dishes. I recommend serving is alongside some baked honey cajun salmon or a juicy mango curry steak with coconut cauliflower rice. If you’re not into cauliflower rice, cook up some air fryer roasted potatoes beforehand and wrap them up in foil to keep them warm while you cook the zucchini! Now, you’ve got yourself a DELICIOUS meal that the whole family will enjoy!
