  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided, or more to taste

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

  • ½ cup whole green beans

  • ½ cup whole asparagus spears

  • ½ cup red onion rings

  • ½ cup sweet pepper rings

  • ½ cup avocado wedges

  • ½ cup zucchini slices


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

  2. Combine flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Whisk eggs and water together in another shallow dish. Stir panko and oil together in a third shallow dish.

  3. Sprinkle green beans, asparagus, red onion, sweet pepper, avocado, and zucchini with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; dip in flour mixture, then in egg mixture, and finally in panko mixture to coat.

  4. Arrange half of the vegetables in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Cook until golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with additional salt, if desired. Transfer vegetables to oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining vegetables.

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

Add 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut to panko mixture.
