Airfried Zucchini

Jump to Recipe

Hello peeps! I am not particularly sure when I am going to get back to regular weekly blogging but honestly, I feel there is a lot going on in my life and so I am trying to tell myself it’s ok to be MIA in this space :). Anywho, I have been getting my hands on home grown Zucchini quite a bit (thanks to our community’s strongest and super knowledgeable person). We have a small patch within the community where residents can grow veggies/ fruits/ plants in general as they like. We are growing some brinjals & tomatoes mainly in ours. This person grows so many veggies and she is so generous to share with all of us! No one else has Zucchini at home. So, all this home grown zucchini that she gives is just for me :D.

As with most of my life now with the AirFryer, I just chop the veggies, mix with seasoning and chuck it in the AirFryer. I just love how the taste of nicely air fried veggies/ baked veggies taste. I feel the sweetness of the veggies come out nicely in this process. And I love how once you chuck it into the airfryer, you pretty much can forget about the veggies that you put in :). Win-Win for sure! I have made these so many times now but never got around to taking a nice pic for the blog. It’s a very simple recipe and if you like zucchini/ aubergine, do give this a try.

And oh, the flower in the pic is from a plant my neighbour gifted me :). My heart was so happy when I was taking this pic. Harvesting your own veggies is a feeling that cannot be explained and to make a food pic setting with a home grown flower only adds to that feeling :).

  7. Spray the zucchini roundels with cooking oil spray.

  8. Airfry in a preheated airfryer of 200c for 25 mins flipping them once in between.

Recipe Notes
  1. Mental note is to cut the roundels a bit thicker for next time.
  2. I also want to try this by adding a brit of breadcrumbs as well. 
  3. You can try the same recipe with big aubergine.
