Air Fried Zucchini Bites!

I think I could eat this every single day. I am slightly obsessed with my air fryer and not just to make air fried french fries, but so many veggies cook really well in this oven!

I LOVE how it cooks zucchini specifically, because zucchini has so much water in it, that it takes a long time IMO to roast, and can tend to shrivel up a lot, and if you saute it, it is sometimes hard to brown well, again a lot of water content. But this way - it’s toasty, browned and ready to pop into your mouth as a perfect app!

Super simple recipe:

Preheat air fryer to 350-360 F

Slice ends off your medium size zucchini, then cut into rounds about 1 1/2 inches thick

Toss in a bowl, spray with olive oil (you can skip this too, I just like a little flavor and my spray is really a mist), season with salt

Pop into your air fryer basket once warmed up (at least 5-10 minutes)

Set your timer for 12-15 minutes and you might need to shake them around a few times so they cook evenly

Let cool, and serve with a side of marinara

Also try with dried oregano/garlic.
