How to prepare the ciambotta recipe in an air fryer

  1. First, let the eggplant purge . Cut it into 1 cm slices and put them in a colander, salting each slice with coarse salt.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the other vegetables. After having washed the pepper and courgette, cut the former into half-centimetre strips and the latter into slices , again about half a centimeter thick.
  3. Cut the tomatoes in half if they are very small or in four and slice the onion not too thinly.
  4. Combine all the vegetables in a bowl, add the peeled potatoes cut into rather thin wedges, the capers and season with the oil, mixing well so that it is distributed.
  5. Transfer the vegetables to the basket of the air fryer and cook them at 200°C for 25 minutes , stirring occasionally. The ciambotta is ready when the potatoes are tender.
