For this recipe, you will need:

  • ½ lb. medium asparagus
  • 1/2 pound radishes (about 5-6 radishes)

Prepare the Vegetables

This recipe works best by cutting the vegetables into bite sized pieces. This will help them roast quicker as well.

Cut the potatoes, carrots, parsnips into 1-inch cubes. For the asparagus and radishes, cut of the ends, then cut it in half. Then, take the garlic and finely chop it up, or in other words, mince it.

You can roast these vegetables with any of your favorite seasonings or flavors. Here is a tasty wet marinade combination if you are unsure what to do.

  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 
  • ½ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)

Place the vegetables together in a bowl, then pour each of the marinade ingredients onto the vegetables. Mix everything together until it is well combined.

How to Roast Vegetables in the Air Fryer

Preheat the air fryer basket to 400°F/204°C for 5 minutes. Place the vegetables in the air fryer basket. If your air fryer basket is more than halfway full, you may need to cook in batches.

Cook the vegetables in the air fryer for a total of 22-27 minutes at 350°F/175°C, or until the vegetables are tender and crispy to your liking. Make sure you stir the vegetables at the halfway point.

My Air Fryer Doesn’t Have a Shake Reminder Button

If your air fryer doesn’t have a shake reminder button like the Cosori 5.8 qt Pro II, you can cook the vegetables for 12 minutes at 350°F/175°C, then stir the contents. After stirring the contents, cook the vegetables for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until they are done.

When Do You Use the Roast Button on the Air Fryer

I often get questions about when to use the roast setting on the air fryer or other settings like bake and air fryer. Not every air fryer make and model have these settings. But, if your does, here is what I have noticed about these settings.

These settings are like presets- they are just a quick button that will give you a recommended time and temp. I haven’t noticed a difference in how it actually cooks the food. If you have noticed something different with your air fryer, share with us in the comments below!

So, with that being said, you can make this recipe by clicking any of the presets. But make sure you change the temp to 350°F/175°C and set the time for 12 minutes.
