  • 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


  1. Preheat a 6-quart air fryer to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut small red potatoes into quarters, or larger potatoes into 1-inch chunks.
  3. 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.
  4. Sprinkle in ¼ cup of the Parmesan cheese and toss until all of the potatoes are covered.
  5. 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.
  6. Serve the roasted potatoes with the remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese and the chopped parsley. Enjoy!
