  • Prepare10 mins
  • Cook15 mins
  • Total time25 mins


  • 1 parsnip
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1 beetroot
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • ¼ tsp coarsely ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp mixed herbs (optional)
  • Unflavoured spray oil il (such as sunflower)


  1. Scrub and dry the vegetables – there’s no need to peel them. Using a mandolin or thinbladed sharp knife, cut them into the thinnest possible diagonal slices, about 3mm thick. Prepare the beetroot last so the colour doesn’t run too much.

  2. Dry all the vegetables thoroughly with kitchen paper or a clean tea towel. Sprinkle with ½ of the salt, black pepper and herbs (if using).

  3. Preheat the air fryer to 180ºC. Place the vegetables in the air fryer tray, spray with a few squirts of oil, toss and cook for 15-16 minutes, shaking every 5 minutes, until golden and crisp.

  4. Meanwhile, mix the remaining salt, pepper and herbs (if using) on a large baking sheet. As soon as the vegetables are crisp, toss them with the seasoning and spread over the tray to cool.

Cook’s tip

If you don’t have an air fryer, preheat the oven to 160ºC, gas mark 3, then bake the vegetables in a single layer on a large baking tray for 20-25 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the seasoning before serving.
