Zucchini Spears Take Flight: How to Cook Them to Perfection in an Air Fryer


Who doesn't love a perfectly cooked veggie dish? With the newest kitchen appliance craze, air fryers, taking over the food world, it only makes sense to combine the two. But can we really cook zucchini spears in an air fryer? The answer is a resounding yes! And in this blog post, we're going to show you exactly how to do it.



First things first, let's gather our ingredients.

  • 2-3 medium zucchinis

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs


Now, onto the steps to cook those zucchini spears to perfection:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F.

  2. Cut the zucchinis into spears, about 1/2 inch thick.

  3. In a shallow dish, mix together the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper.

  4. In another shallow dish, beat the eggs.

  5. In a third shallow dish, place the seasoned bread crumbs.

  6. Coat each zucchini spear in the flour mixture, then dip them in the egg mixture, and finally coat them in the bread crumbs. Place them on a plate as you go.

  7. Once all the zucchini spears are coated, place them in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching.

  8. Cook the zucchini spears for 8-10 minutes, turning them halfway through, until they are crispy and golden brown.


Pro Tips and Variations:

  • For a healthier option, you can use panko bread crumbs instead of seasoned bread crumbs.

  • If you want a little extra flavor, try adding some grated Parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs.

  • If you don't have fresh zucchini on hand, you can also use frozen zucchini spears.


Who knew that cooking zucchini spears in an air fryer was so easy? This recipe produces a delicious and crispy snack or side dish that is sure to impress. With a little flour, eggs, and bread crumbs, you're all set to make the most of your air fryer and take your zucchini spears to the next level. So, give it a try and enjoy!
