air fryer zucchini parmesan and garlic

Air Fryer Zucchini Parmesan

Looking for a perfect side dish? This Air Fryer Zucchini Parmesan is pretty much my version of garlic bread without the bread. Great vegetable side dish, a keto, and low carb recipe. Total game changer. This roasted zucchini dish is cheesy, garlicky, and full of flavor.

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2-4 1x



2 large zucchini

1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan

5 cloves of finely minced garlic

3 tbsp of butter

thyme leaves

salt and black pepper




  1. In a small saucepan, melt your butter, and add the garlic and thyme leaves.
  2. Cut your zucchini into 4 lengthwise pieces. You want them to be thick slices. Slice the edge so that the zucchini is flat. Score the zucchini.
  3. Using a spoon, spoon the butter and garlic mixture onto the zucchini.
  4. Put the grated parmesan onto the zucchini.
  5. Place your zucchini on the air fryer basket or tray in a single layer. Do not crowd, you can do it in batches.
  6. Air fry for 15 minutes to 350 degrees. Make sure the top is golden brown.


Oven baked: Place the zucchini slices on the baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees f for 40 minutes or until it is golden brown.
