We continue to love our air fryer and use it on a weekly (many times daily) basis.  What an awesome machine!  We have cooked everything from fresh vegetables to meat to frozen foods in our air fryer.  The cooking is so consistent and the food comes out perfectly cooked every time.

When we are pressed for time (or simply looking to enjoy a tasty treat), we like to use the air fryer to cook up frozen appetizers and other foods.  The air fryer is such a time saver!

Easy Roasted Eggplant in the Air Fryer

I LOVE eggplant.  I love it grilled, roasted, baked up in a delicious Parmesan… it’s rare that I try an eggplant recipe that I don’t love. The other day I wanted to have some eggplant with lunch but I didn’t feel like heating up the big oven or frying it on the stove.  That’s when it dawned on me to toss the eggplant in our air fryer. The results were perfect and DELICIOUS.  The eggplant cooked up quickly and I can’t wait to make this recipe again!

Roasted Eggplant Ingredients

1 medium eggplant (peeled and cubed)
dried basil

4. Cook eggplant in air fryer at 400 degrees for 12 minutes.  Pull basket out and give it a shake halfway through the cooktime. Enjoy immediately after cooking! Note: If you like your eggplant a little crispier, return to air fryer and cook in two minute increments until it is cooked to your liking.
