  • 1 ½ lbs. red potatoes quartered
  • 2 Tbsp. oil avocado or olive
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 ¼ tsp. salt to taste
  • ½ tsp. black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup + 2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese grated, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. parsley finely chopped


  • Preheat a 6-quart air fryer to 400 degrees.
  • Cut small red potatoes into quarters, or larger potatoes into 1-inch chunks.
  • Add the oil, lemon juice, zest, garlic, salt, and black pepper to a large bowl. Whisk until well combined. Add the chopped potatoes and toss until well coated in the sauce.
  • Sprinkle in ¼ cup of the Parmesan cheese and toss until all of the potatoes are covered.
  • Add the potatoes to the preheated 400 degree air fryer and spread out in a single layer. It’s OK if a few of the potatoes overlap slightly. Cook for 14-15 minutes, flipping the potatoes halfway through cooking.
  • Serve the roasted potatoes with the remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese and the chopped parsley. Enjoy!



Meal Prep and Storage

  • How to prep ahead of time: You can chop the potatoes and toss them with the oil mixture a day early, but be sure to keep them in the fridge.
  • How to store: Place leftover potatoes in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to 4 to 5 days.
  • How to freeze: Freeze leftovers in a freezer-safe container or Ziploc bag for up to 6 months.
  • How to reheat: Place potatoes back in the air fryer at 300℉ for 3 to 5 minutes or use the microwave.
