Featuring butternut squash, carrots and sweet potatoes, these Air Fryer Roasted Fall Vegetables make a superb seasonal side dish for two. These veggies are flavorful, simple to make, and perfectly roasted in the air fryer!
6ounces diced butternut squash (about 1/2 small)
1 small sweet potato, peeled and diced (approx. 6 ounces)
1 large carrot (approx. 4–5 ounces)
1 tablespoonolive oil
1 teaspoonapple cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoondried sage
1/4 teaspoongarlic powder
kosher salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste
Prepare the vegetables: Prep the butternut squash and the sweet potato in an equal bite-sized dice. Peel the carrots, and cut them in slightly smaller pieces on a harsh diagonal. This gives them more surface area so that they cook evenly with the softer vegetables.
Toss in seasoning: In the bottom of a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, dried sage, garlic powder and a generous amount of both salt and pepper. Add the prepared vegetables to the bowl and toss to coat well and the seasoning mixture.
Roast the vegetables: Preheat your air fryer to 380F if your model requires it. Spread the vegetables out in an almost flat layer (it’s okay if a few pieces are overlapping!) in the air fryer basket. Air fry at 380F for 20-25 minutes, tossing occasionally until all the vegetables are tender and slightly golden around the edges. If you plan to double the recipe, be sure to cook in batches.
Serve & store: Serve the vegetables as a side with dinner! You can leave the cooked veggies in the air fryer to keep warm while the rest of the food cooks. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Leftover cold roasted veggies would be delicious in a Fall salad!
Veggies:Other types of pumpkin and squash work well here, as do diced beets, but cut them slightly smaller than the squash and the sweet potato pieces. For some reason, the parsnips kept coming out really dry during testing so I’d leave it out of your fall veggie mix!
