An array of vibrant fall vegetables, from earthy beets to sweet carrots and tender Swiss chard, dance in the air fryer's embrace. A drizzle of olive oil and a medley of seasonings coax out their natural flavors, while a sprinkling of toasted pumpkin seeds adds the perfect crunch. This air fryer vegetable medley is a harmonious blend of colors and tastes, a tribute to the bountiful harvest season.
- 2 medium beets, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
- 4 large Swiss chard leaves, stems removed and leaves chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for a few minutes.
- Prepare the Vegetables: In a large mixing bowl, combine the beet cubes, carrot rounds, and chopped Swiss chard leaves. Drizzle the olive oil over the vegetables and toss to coat them evenly.
- Season the Vegetables: Sprinkle the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper over the vegetables. Toss again to ensure the seasonings are evenly distributed.
- Air Fry the Vegetable Medley: Place the seasoned vegetables in the EaZy MealZ Crisper Basket, making sure they are in a single layer and not overcrowded. You may need to cook in batches if your air fryer has limited space.
- Air Fry: Cook the vegetable medley at 375°F (190°C) for about 10-15 minutes, shaking the basket or stirring the vegetables halfway through the cooking time. Cook until the vegetables are tender and have some crispy edges.
- Add Pumpkin Seeds: In the last 2-3 minutes of cooking, sprinkle the pumpkin seeds over the vegetables in the air fryer basket. They will toast and become crispy during this time.
- Serve: Once the vegetable medley is done, remove it from the air fryer, transfer to a serving dish, and garnish with additional salt, pepper, or pumpkin seeds if desired.
