Frozen veggies are a convenient and affordable option for your healthy kitchen. I recommend keeping your freezer well stocked for busy weeknights or when you’re running low on produce.

No more last-minute grocery store runs to get a vegetable on the table! Since they come pre-cut, all you have to do is toss them in olive oil before air frying.

Frozen stir-fry vegetables are a delicious option because they include a little bit of everything, but you can air fry frozen broccoli or any type of vegetable you love.

If you’re tired of mushy frozen vegetables, this is the recipe for you! Air fryer vegetables are crisp on the outside and perfectly cooked inside. The air fryer works magic on plenty of dishes, but with roasted veggies, it really sings.

Key Ingredients

Frozen stir-fry mixed vegetables – For this recipe I use a stir-fry blend, but you can air fry frozen broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, or Brussels sprouts. They vary in cooking times depending on the vegetable. Broccoli tends to cook much faster than the others.

Olive oil – Heart-healthy olive oil is essential for flavor and crispiness. You can use avocado oil or ghee (for non-vegan diets) in its place if you prefer.

Salt & pepper – Be sure to season your veggies for the best flavor! Feel free to add some garlic powder, onion powder, or Italian seasoning if you want even more flavor.
