(Air) Fried Veggies – Arabic Mezza

This is one of our favorite weekend dinners. Traditionally, we deep fry eggplants, potatoes, and cauliflower. However, we have adapted this to make it healthier and easier to clean up! It takes a little time to get the veggies perfectly crispy, which is why we save this for a weekend, but clean up is so easy and you don’t really have to watch it. Just chop and place in the air-fryer. Shake it up mid-way, and you’ll have a very satisfying, vegan dinner. We like to top ours with mild salsa and extra lemon juice.
