Air Fryer Instructions:

  • Preheat air fryer to 390F / 198C.

Notes

Grilled Vegetable Kabobs Tips

  • You can use other quick cooks veggies too for these vegetable skewers, like eggplant and radishes.
  • Make sure you cut the vegetables to the same size so they veggie kabobs cook at the same rate.
  • Cook time depends on size of vegetables - so start out with less time if you are unsure and then increase accordingly. 
  • Feel free to brush your favorite marinade on the vegetables before cooking. But please note this will change the Weight Watchers points. You can also use some low calorie cooking spray.
  • You can vary the spices and herbs to suit your taste. If following a particular eating program, make sure the spices and seasonings are compliant and program-approved. Mix the seasoning and veggies in a mixing bowl before threading. See some suggestions below.

 Air Fryer Kabobs Tips

  • Make sure to soak the wooden skewers before using them.
  • Alternatively, you can use metal skewers for this.
  • Make sure the skewers will fit inside your air fryer. You can buy smaller skewers, but if you already have longer skewers on hand do what I did and cut them down using a sharp knife to fit in the air fryer basket (I cut mine to 6.5 inches).
  • Air fryer temperatures can vary depending on the make and model, so it is important to always check your food for doneness and adjust the cook time as needed.
  • You can cook these on a hot skillet on the stovetop.
