Some Useful Tips

Oil first: Tossing the vegetables in first, will ensure that the rest of the powdered seasoning will cling to the vegetables.

Scrub or Peel: You do not have to peel every vegetable. In fact, the skin of potatoes is known to contain plenty of Vitamin C. If you choose to not peel, just scrub your root vegetables in water.

Microwave: To speed up the process of air frying, microwave your seasoned chopped root vegetables in a microwave-safe bowl with a couple of teaspoons of water.

Frequently Asked Questions About Air Fryer Roasted Root Vegetables

Can this recipe be made in the oven?

Yes, absolutely! For oven-roasted root vegetables, preheat the oven for 10 minutes to 350 F/180 C. Line your roasting tray with baking paper or a silicon baking mat. This will make it super-easy to clean your tray later. Arrange vegetables in one single layer and roast for 450 F / 230 C for 40 – 60 minutes, depending on the oven capacity.

Can you freeze roasted vegetables?

Root vegetables have lower water content, due to which they are perfect for freezing. Once cooled, place them in freezer bags, and store them for up to 6 months.

What to serve with roasted root vegetables?

Add some protein you like. Some suggestions: Pan-fried tofu, tandoori paneer, air-fried fish, teriyaki salmon, roasted chicken drumsticks, or garlic butter beef bites.

Notes

Notes:
  1. Red Wine Vinegar – You can substitute this with White Wine Vinegar or Balsamic Vinegar
  2. Oil Use: Unlike oven baking or pan frying, some of the oil used in the marinade will eventually be drained off in the bottom pan, making it lower fat than cooking by other methods. 
  3. If you buy organic vegetables, you do not have to peel the skin off. Just scrub with a brush under water till clean and proceed to chop as required.
