Air fryers are taking over kitchens nationwide. They're basically mini convection ovens that 'fry' foods with little to no oil, less fat, and fewer calories. A heating element and fan bathe the food in hot air to produce a crispy finished product. Use 2 to 3 cups of assorted vegetable pieces, cut 1/2-inch thick. Serve with desired dipping sauce.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mix together flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Whisk together eggs and water in another shallow dish. Stir together panko and oil in a third shallow dish. Add desired seasoning to either panko and/or flour mixture.

  • Sprinkle vegetables with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Dip in flour mixture, then in egg mixture, and finally in panko mixture to coat.

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and the oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).

  • Arrange half of the vegetables in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Cook until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with additional salt, if desired. Transfer vegetables to oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining vegetables.

Two seasoning ideas:

Add 2 tablespoons sesame seeds to panko mixture and 1 teaspoon ground ginger to flour mixture.

Add 2 tablespoons shredded coconut to panko mixture.

10 min is way too long. I tried broccoli but it comes out really dry and burnt tasting. The onion rings were slightly better but I only cooked them for about 5 min. Panko crumbs didn't stick well Read More
