How to Make Delicious Air Fryer Zucchini Parmesan in 5 Easy Steps

Are you looking for an easy way to add more veggies to your diet? Are you tired of the usual steamed zucchini? Look no further than your trusty air fryer! This versatile kitchen gadget can turn the humble zucchini into a crispy, delicious dish that's sure to please. But can you really cook zucchini parmesan in an air fryer? The answer is a resounding yes! Here's a step-by-step guide to making this tasty dish.


  • 2 medium zucchini

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • Salt and pepper

  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F.

  2. Cut the zucchini into 1/4-inch rounds. Season with salt and set aside.

  3. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. In another shallow dish, beat the eggs. In a third shallow dish, mix together the breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.

  4. Dip each zucchini round into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and finally the breadcrumb mixture, pressing lightly to coat.

  5. Spray the zucchini rounds with cooking spray and place them in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the zucchini is golden brown and crispy.

Pro Tips and Variations:

  • Serve the zucchini parmesan with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.

  • Instead of using pre-seasoned breadcrumbs, mix in your favorite Italian herbs like basil, oregano, and thyme.

  • If you don't have Parmesan cheese, try using shredded mozzarella or a blend of Italian cheeses.

  • For a healthier option, use whole wheat flour and panko breadcrumbs instead of regular flour and breadcrumbs.

Zucchini parmesan in the air fryer is a must-try recipe that's easy, healthy, and delicious. With just a few ingredients and a little bit of prep work, you can have a crispy and flavorful side dish or snack in no time at all.

So ditch the boring steamed veggies and give this recipe a try! Your taste buds will thank you.
