Halloween is a fun time, but it’s full of candy, sugar, peanut butter cups, stuff that makes your teeth rot (but tastes sooo goood!), more peanut butter cups, lots of other junk and even more peanut butter cups. Have I mentioned I love those peanut butter cups?! When I think of Halloween, I want to have fun with the kids and give them something tasty to eat. Air Fryer Halloween Roasted Veggies aren’t exactly what kids think of during Halloween, but the kids actually love them!

Basics of Using an Air Fryer

Are you looking for help using an air fryer? If you’re going to us it to cook veggies, you’ll need to know a few things. I’m going to share with you some of the most basic tips for using an air fryer, but they will come in handy.

 

Don’t put too much food in the air fryer. A common mistake made by many users is overcrowding. You’ll need to leave room for the air to circulate through. 

 

The food you put in the Air Fryer needs to be coated with oil. You don’t need to have a lot of oil on the food, but it does need to be lightly coated.

Can You Cook Veggies in the Air Fryer?

The good news is that you can cook veggies in the air fryer and it’s not difficult. Your veggies can be frozen or fresh, which is awesome news.

 

Vegetables in the south do not last. I prefer to have fresh vegetables on hand, but I also have some frozen as well. That prevents me having to worry about them going bad.

 

Preparing vegetables in an Air Fryer is super easy and doesn’t take a lot of prep work. My kind of cooking.

What Food Can You Cook in an Air Fryer?

I highly doubt you’ll run out and purchase an Air Fryer just to cook vegetables. The nice thing about the Air Fryer is its versatility. 

 

Some of the different kinds of foods you can make in the Air Fryer include Air Fryer Monster Tunnel Cake and Air Fryer Mexican Street Corn Nachos . Yes, you can make dessert and delicious nachos in your Air Fryer. How cool is that?!

 

Of course, you can cook lots of other foods in the Air Fryer. You can cook meat, potatoes, vegetables, chips, or anything else you want. All it takes is a little bit of oil to fry up something delicious. My husband claims the best bacon he’s ever tasted came from the Air Fryer. That man loves bacon. 

 

Is Air Fryer Food Healthy?

When you compare air frying and deep-frying, you better believe it’s a better option for your health.

 

Not everyone will enjoy air fried food because they’re so used to eating deep-fried food. Depending on your level of fried food consumption, it might take a little time to get used to air fryer food. Then again, it was a big hit with my husband who is a self-described fried food connoisseur. Personally, I get excited about all the deserts air fryers have the capability of making. 

Give it a try. I think you’ll find that an Air Fryer is actually a great tool to have on hand. Especially when making roasted veggies.
