In 15 minutes, prepare simple eggplant using an air fryer and just 4 ingredients! It has a tasty crispy, cheesy coating and cooks more quickly than other techniques.


  1. one medium-sized sliced eggplant
  2. Two tablespoons of olive oil
  3. One teaspoon sea salt
  4. Black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon
  5. Grated parmesan cheese, one cup
  6. Two tsp of Italian spice


  • Set the air fryer’s temperature to 375°F, or 190°C.
  • Cut the eggplant crosswise into rounds that are approximately 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thick. Only trim off the leafy end after you have finished slicing, so that you have more surface area to hold onto. Using paper towels, pat the slices dry.
  • Olive oil can be brushed or drizzled over the eggplant slices. Add Italian spice, Parmesan cheese, black pepper, and sea salt.
  • Place the eggplant slices in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Simmer for ten to twelve minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and the eggplant is tender. With the remaining eggplant slices, repeat in batches.


  • This vegetable is delicious as an appetizer (dunk it in tomato sauce or marinara sauce!) or as a simple side dish to go with a variety of main dishes:
  • Chicken: This dish pairs well with nearly any type of chicken preparation, but my personal favorites are air fryer chicken wings or lemon garlic chicken.
  • Fish: Try the flaky air fryer cod (or bake the cod), pan-seared salmon (it has the finest lemon butter sauce!), or halibut for a nicer meal.
  • Steak: Try it with an air fryer steak for a meal prepared right there, or try a chimichurri steak for a little different twist. You can even cook a basic sirloin steak while the eggplant is air frying.
  • Noodles: You may serve it with your preferred pasta or go for more vegetarian options like spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.
  • Eggplant Lasagna: This recipe calls for air-fried eggplant instead of roasted chunks of eggplant! It can also be used to make eggplant parmesan by adding mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce to it, then finishing with fresh basil.
