Make an easy side dish with these Air Fryer Roasted Tomatoes!
If you enjoy a delicious Air Fryer Steak, they are perfectly paired with these Air Fryer Roasted Tomatoes. Tomatoes are wonderful to warm up in the air fryer, especially when they are fresh in the summertime.
These tomatoes are going to have more of a roasted texture, they will be very soft inside, crispy on the outside.
Can you cook tomatoes in the Air Fryer?
Tomatoes can be easily cooked in the air fryer, this needs to be done skin-side down.
Once the tomatoes are cut, it’s best to coat them with cooking oil spray and salt. I typically use Pompeian Olive Oil Cooking Spray, it’s worked perfectly for me every time.
I know that is a bit controversial because of the lower smoke point, if you prefer a higher smoke point, use Grapeseed Cooking Oil Spray.
It’s best to keep a close eye on them the first time cooking since all air fryers heat differently.
Tips for Making Air Fryer Roasted Tomatoes:
This recipe is made using beefsteak tomatoes. These are large and juicy tomatoes, they pair wonderfully with a juicy steak.
I have used grape or cherry tomatoes in the air fryer as well. They also are delicious to roast; however, watch the cooking time closely if you swap those out for beefsteak tomatoes.
Cutting the tomato is by far the trickiest part of getting it to cook properly. The first step is to cut the tomato right in half. Place the tomato with the stem up and just cut it right down the center.
Once it’s cut lengthwise, go ahead and cut the tomato into smaller chunks. This should make about 4 chunks of tomato out of 1 beefsteak tomato.
Once the cutting is done, lay them skin side down in the air fryer and continue on with roasting them in the air fryer.
If needed, you can coat the air fryer basket with cooking oil spray as well, but I did not find this necessary in mine.
