Aright, if you follow me on @thechutneylife you see me use my air fryer almost daily. Normally, I fill it up with cauliflower, peppers, and zucchini tossed with olive oil, garlic powder, and curry powder. But of course I was getting a little tired of the same old mid day meal and thought I’d try out some potatoes in the air fryer because ya girl wanted some damn carbs. These would also be great for a fun and fusion Thanksgiving side dish instead of regular potatoes! You can make a big batch and roast them in the oven with some cubed bell peppers and onions too! Just place them in a sheet pan, bake at 425 covered for about 20 minutes and then uncovered for about 20 minutes, rotating the pan once in between and checking to see when they are fork tender!
Want to make these for Thanksgiving?
- Double or Triple the recipe and add a few tbsp of butter along with the olive oil before you roast them.
- Add chopped onions, red peppers and green peppers (they add color, texture and flavor). Be sure to cut them into larger squares since they will cook a lot quicker than the potatoes.
- Roast them on a sheet pan in the oven at 425 degrees (covered for the first 15-20 minutes- you can just cover the sheet pan with aluminum foil) and then roast uncovered for about 20 minutes or until they are fork tender.
If you’re looking for an air fryer, there are a ton of great options on the market and I have this Philips Avance XL Fryer! Is it worth the counter space? TOTALLY. It has encouraged me to eat so many more veggies throughout the day and is perfect because you can set it and forget it. Often times when you’re roasting things in the oven, you have to rotate the pan or check on the veggies, etc so I find the air fryer to be a little easier.
hope you enjoy this recipe, happy eating ?
