Air Fryer Zucchini

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 medium zucchinis, washed and sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian herbs (optional)
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional, for serving)
  • Fresh chopped herbs (such as parsley or basil) for garnish


  1. Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 3-5 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Zucchini:
    • In a mixing bowl, toss the zucchini rounds with olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, dried herbs (if using), salt, and black pepper. Ensure the zucchini slices are evenly coated.
  3. Air Fry the Zucchini:
    • Place the seasoned zucchini slices in the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they are not overcrowded.
    • Air fry at 400°F (200°C) for about 8-10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through the cooking time for even crisping.
  4. Serve:
    • Once the zucchini slices are golden brown and crispy on the edges, remove them from the air fryer.
    • Transfer the air-fried zucchini to a serving plate.
    • Optionally, sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the zucchini slices while they are still hot for extra flavor.
    • Garnish with fresh chopped herbs like parsley or basil before serving.


  • You can adjust the seasoning according to your taste preferences. Add a pinch of red pepper flakes for a spicy kick or some lemon zest for brightness.
  • For extra crispiness, you can lightly coat the zucchini slices with a thin layer of breadcrumbs or grated Parmesan cheese before air frying.
  • Serve the air fryer zucchini as a side dish, appetizer, or even as a topping for salads or pasta dishes.
