Prepare the eggplants in the air fryer

  1. Take the aubergines and wash them well under running water. After that, dry them carefully.
  2. Remove the ends with a knife and cut them . You can choose whether to make them into rounds or cubes
  3. Sprinkle the aubergines with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt, and place them in the air fryer
  4. If you have cut the aubergines into slices, cook them at 180°C for 10 minutes , turning them halfway through cooking. If, on the other hand, you have cut them into cubes, cook the aubergines first at 160°C for 10 minutes and then at 180° for another 5 minutes . This way, the cubes will be crispy!
  5. The aubergines are ready ! Take them out of the air fryer basket and serve them while still hot


Eggplant cooked inside the air fryer can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Alternatively, just put them in a dish covered with food film , and then always put them in the fridge. In any case, aubergines must be eaten within two days of cooking.

Seasonings for the recipe

An excellent condiment is a sauce made with parsley and garlic . Just chop the two ingredients and add them to a little oil , mix everything and sprinkle over the aubergines. They are also excellent to eat with a sprinkling of oregano or, for those who love spicy, we also recommend one fresh chilli tip!

Tricks for perfect cooking!

If you don't want to go wrong in cooking your aubergines, here are a couple of useful tips for using the air fryer ! First of all, do not use baking paper or pans , but put the aubergines directly in the basket of your air fryer!

The second trick is useful if you intend to cut the aubergines into slices . In this case, try not to overlap the slices too much : by doing so, they will cook more evenly !
