Jamie Oliver’s air-fryer vegetables are the perfect side dish – recipe

The air-fryer is an innovative cooking masterpiece that has become a staple in many kitchens.

Jamie Oliver’s air-fryer root vegetables are a must-try. Tossed with garlic and herbs, these bad boys are not only healthy but full of flavour too.

The recipe serves four (as a side) so is ideal for family dinners. Alternatively, amend quantities depending on party size.

According to Jamie this foolproof recipe is “super easy”, so even air-fryer novices should give it a go.

These root veggies should take you 10 minutes to prepare and 35 minutes to cook. You won’t be slaving away in the kitchen for long.


  1. Chop the root veg into 2cm chunks (there’s no need to peel it and the chunks can be rough).
  2. Place in a large bowl with one tablespoon of olive oil and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Toss until the veggies are coated.
  3. Transfer the veg to the air-fryer and cook at 170°C for 25 minutes. Ensure that you turn the veg over or shake the basket every 10 minutes.
  4. Peel and slice the garlic. Pick and roughly chop the rosemary.
  5. Put the garlic, rosemary and a splash of red wine vinegar in the air-fryer and then toss with the veg, then cook at 190°C for another 10 minutes, or until cooked through and a golden colour.

The great thing about root veggies is that they complement almost anything. Pair them with steak and chips, salmon and wild rice or a traditional Sunday roast.

This recipe was tested in a 4.2-litre air-fryer. All air-fryers are different, so results may vary.
