Thanks to a follower on my Instagram for seeing the post of the fried zucchini I had for lunch yesterday. She asked if maybe Fried Zucchini could be made in an Air Fryer. As a result she was the inspiration for this post. Thank you to my readers, most of all, if there is something you would like to read, see posted or have a recipe to, don’t hesitate to ask. If you ask, you shall receive a post! LOL so without further a do…Easy Air Fryer Zucchini.

air fryer zucchini ingredients:

½ C. panko crumbs
¼ C. grated parmesan
¼ tsp. basil
¼ tsp. oregano
Dash of cayenne pepper
¼ C. egg white (about 2 egg whites)
2 medium-sized zucchini

Directions:
  1. In a bowl, mix together the crumbs, cheese and herbs, set aside.
  2. Wash the zucchini well; leave unpeeled. Cut in half cross wise, then cut into wedges not more than 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Spray top rotating pan of Air fryer.
  4. Put egg white in a shallow bowl or place.
  5. Put a small amount of the crumb mixture on another plate. (Important! Only work with a small amount of crumb mixture at a time.)
  6. Dip a zucchini wedge in the egg white to coat, then in the crumbs to coat, pressing down well.
  7. Then put in Air fryer pan.
  8. Repeat till all wedges are coated. When Air fryer pan gets full, then put the prepared wedges on a plate to wait (don’t stack.)
  9. Refill the crumb mixture plate with a bit more crumb mixture as necessary.
  10. Wash and dry your hands to start fresh.
  11. Spray lightly the wedges that are in the Air fryer.
  12. Cook for 7 minutes; with tongs turn them over, and cook for another 7 minutes.
  13. Take all these out, put somewhere with a cover over them (such as a microwave plate cover) to keep warm, then do the second batch of wedges.
  14. When you’re ready to serve, carefully add the first batch back in, and give them all another minute or two to get piping hot.
  15. Makes enough for 4 as a generous side dish.
  16. Serve each serving hot with its own allotment of dipping sauce made from 2 tbsp fat free yogurt mixed with 1 tbsp low-fat Blue cheese or ranch dressing.

      An air fryer cooks by circulating hot air around the food. A mechanical fan circulates the hot air around the food at high speed, cooking the food and producing a crispy layer via the Maillard effect. Basically like a deep fryer without the oil. It’s safer, faster and healthier. I hope I was able to help.
