Yield 4-6 1x


  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 4 medium zucchinis, sliced into ¼-inch rounds (~4 cups)
  • 1.75 cups grated parmesan cheese 
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400ºF. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. 
  2. Next, place the sliced zucchini in a bowl and toss with olive oil. Set aside. 
  3. In a separate bowl, add parmesan cheese, garlic powder, pepper, cayenne pepper, and salt to a bowl and mix. 
  4. Dredge each oiled zucchini round through the parmesan mixture. Be sure that the zucchini rounds are completely covered in the parmesan mixture. Place each zucchini round on a separate plate. 
  5. Once all the rounds are coated, line the bottom of the air fryer with the coated zucchini. If you have a smaller air fryer you may have to cook the zucchini in a couple batches. 
  6. Spray the zucchini with non-stick cooking spray and cook the zucchini in the air fryer for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. 
  7. Carefully remove the zucchini from the air fryer with a spatula or fork. 
  8. Serve immediately.
