How to make the best air fryer marinated roasted vegetables
Wash the vegetables, deseed the bell peppers and chop the rest of the veggies into equal sizes.
Transfer to a large mixing bowl, then sprinkle the smoked paprika over, garlic granules, Herb de Provence, salt and pepper, olive oil and lemon juice and mix or toss to combine.
Preheat the air fryer at 200c/400f for 3 minutes.
Transfer the marinated vegetables to the air fryer basket and spread them out. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes shaking the air fryer basket every 4 to 5 minutes or halfway through.

How to store
This roasted vegetable medley makes great meal prep and stores beautifully well in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 7 days. Yes, you read that well, it will keep for a whole week in the right fridge temperature.
To reheat: place in heatproof bowl or line the air fryer basket with perforated parchment paper and cook for 3 minutes at 180C/365F.
To repurpose: You can eat leftover roasted vegetable warm or cold. I love it as a breakfast of crusty bread like antipasti or in a wrap with chicken.
Do not cut the vegetables too small as it would burn easily that way.
Too much oil will make the vegetables soggy, remember you are cooking it in the air fryer for its health benefit
