Do You Need Oil When Cooking Vegetables in the Air Fryer?

Yes and no. You can get away with cooking most vegetables without oil, but they can become a bit dry.

I recommend just using up to a tablespoon of oil when cooking air fryer vegetables or spritzing them with a little oil using an EVO Oil Sprayer.

How to Air Fry Vegetables the Best way

  • Cook the vegetables in a single layer to help them cook evenly
  • Cut the vegetables in consistent sizes so they all cook at the same time
  • Shake the basket or flip the vegetables in the air fryer halfway through cooking
  • Remove the vegetables from the air fryer as soon as they’re easily pierced with a fork to prevent overcooking or burning
  • If mixing different veggies together, either cut firm vegetables smaller or cook them for a bit longer than softer vegetables

Is Cooking Vegetables in an Air Fryer Healthy?

Cooking vegetables in the air fryer is equivalent to roasting vegetables in the oven.

They require the same amount of oil and ingredients, but the air fryer cooks the vegetables much quicker than the oven! The best of both worlds!

  1. We recently purchased a Cosori 5qt airfryer. We bought the airfryer to mainly do vegetables. We followed the cooking instructions to the letter and found that all of the vegetables we cooked were crisp on the outside but hard/raw on the inside. We like our vegetables medium soft on the inside. Any advise would be appreciated.

    • Hi Laverne, this post has a lot of different recipes for vegetables included. What recipe did you follow and I can help out a bit more. One reason this could happen is if the basket is too crowded, but I am not sure if this was the case unless I know what vegetable you were looking to cook.
