air fryer roasted root vegetables are tossed in olive oil


  • Assorted root vegetables (e.g., potatoes, carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes, beets)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Optional seasonings (such as rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, paprika, or your preferred herbs and spices)


  1. Preparation:
    • Wash and peel the root vegetables, if desired.
    • Cut the vegetables into uniform pieces to ensure even cooking. Aim for bite-sized chunks or sticks.
  2. Toss in Olive Oil:
    • Place the prepared vegetables in a large mixing bowl.
    • Drizzle olive oil over the vegetables. You want to use enough oil to lightly coat all the pieces. Toss the vegetables to ensure they are evenly coated with the oil.
  3. Season:
    • Sprinkle salt, pepper, and any optional seasonings or herbs over the vegetables. You can get creative with your seasonings, but be mindful not to overdo it.
  4. Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to the recommended temperature, which is typically around 375-400°F (190-200°C).
  5. Cooking:
    • Place the seasoned and oiled vegetables in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Don’t overcrowd the basket; you may need to cook them in batches.
    • Cook for about 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket or turning the vegetables halfway through to ensure even cooking.
    • Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the vegetable pieces and your air fryer model. Check for doneness by poking with a fork or tasting.
  6. Serve:
    • Once the vegetables are golden brown and tender, remove them from the air fryer.
    • Serve your air-fried roasted root vegetables immediately as a side dish. They are great on their own or paired with a dipping sauce or aioli..
