To begin the recipe, wash the zucchini and cut off the ends. Then cut it into slices and place them into a large bowl. There is no need to peel the zucchini, but you can if you prefer it that way.

Next, drizzle the sliced zucchini with olive oil. You can also use any type of vegetable oil. Then sprinkle the zucchini with salt, pepper, and garlic powder and toss to evenly coat all the slices. Again, you can use any seasonings you like this is just how I like to make my air fried roasted zucchini.

Now, transfer the seasoned zucchini slices into the basket of the air fryer and cook it at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes.
Then halfway through cooking remove the air fryer basket and shake it so that the zucchini slices toss around. Now, place the basket back into the air fryer to finish cooking the zucchini. Doing this step will help the zucchini to roast evenly.

This roasted zucchini is fantastic as it is, but to make it extra special you can top it with some parmesan or feta cheese.

How to Store and Use Leftover Air Fryer Roasted Zucchini 

Air fried zucchini will keep in the fridge for up to one week when covered or stored in a container. Cooked zucchini does not tend to freeze all that well, but leftovers work great when added to soups and sauces. You could easily add the roasted zucchini to a tomato sauce to make a quick pasta dish.

Air Fryer Roasted Zucchini Variations

In this recipe, I like to keep it simple and use salt, pepper, and garlic powder, but you can add almost any seasoning or herb. To make it more Italian inspired add a little dried basil. If you want it more herby add a combination of thyme, oregano, and parsley. For a Latin flare cumin and oregano are perfect. And to spice it up this cajun spice mix works perfectly. It’s totally up to you!
