HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER ZUCCHINI PARMESAN ROUNDS
My air fryer has quickly become one of my favorite kitchen accessories because you can do so much with it. Not only can you make snacks, but you can cook entire meals! Let’s get started on these zucchini rounds so you can make them soon.
Start off by slicing the fresh zucchini. Keep the rounds approximately 1/4 inches thick. It’s important to cut them the same size so they can cook evenly.
Then you will need to put the zucchini slices in a bowl. Add the olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Toss to combine, but be gentle.
Add the zucchini slices to the air fryer and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Cook for 4 minutes at 400 degrees. After 5 minutes remove and flip them and sprinkle more parmesan on them. Return to the air fryer for another 4-5 minutes or until super crispy. They are ready when they have turned a golden brown color and have crispy edges. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. We enjoyed them with spicy mayo.
ARE ZUCCHINI PARMESAN ROUNDS HEALTHY?
Yes, these zucchini crips are very healthy for you. The parmesan isn’t just a delicious cheese topping! It’s filled with protein, good fats, vitamin B6, zinc, calcium, and more.
Zucchini is a nutrient-rich veggie that is packed with iron, magnesium, potassium, and calcium. Combining the two gives you a snack that’s loaded with lots of vitamins, minerals, and it’s a bonus that it tastes good too.
HOW DO YOU STORE AIR FRYER ZUCCHINI PARMESAN ROUNDS?
Store any leftovers in a sealed container. They should be refrigerated and last around 2 days. When it comes time to heat them up, put them in a layer in the air fryer and heat them for 2-5 minutes until they are hot and crispy. If you microwave them, they will be somewhat soggy, so the air fryer is best.
