How to Make Air Fryer Cabbage

Air fryer cabbage is an easy and healthy side dish to make. Using the air fryer to cook cabbage, it turns out tender, crisp, and perfect.


Air fryer

Large bowl


Cutting board

Measuring cups and spoons

Wooden spoons



Recipe ingredients (cabbage, oil, salt and pepper)

Air Fryer Cabbage Ingredients

One head of cabbage

¼ cup olive oil

1 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

1/8 tsp garlic powder (optional)

First Step 

To begin this recipe, I remove any outer leaves that look wilted or damaged. 

Next, I place the cabbage on a cutting board with the core side down. 

Then I cut the cabbage into quarters and chop out the core. I cut cabbage quarters into 1-inch pieces. 

Next, transfer the cabbage into a colander and rinse. 

Allow draining until the cabbage is no longer soggy.

Second Step

Transfer the chopped cabbage to a large bowl, drizzle on the oil, and toss to coat. 

Season with salt and pepper.

Third Step

Transfer half the cabbage to an oiled fryer basket and cook the cabbage in the air fryer at 400 degrees F for 16-18 minutes. 

Be sure to stir a few times to be sure the cabbage is cooking evenly and not burning.

Once the first half is finished, remove it from the basket and place it in a serving bowl, then repeat the process for the second half of the cabbage.

Air Fried Cabbage Serving Suggestions 

Corn beef and cabbage are traditionally served for St. Patrick’s Day; however, it can be enjoyed any time of year. 

Cooked cabbage is also delicious, topped with crispy bacon and/or cheese.

Attempting to flip them turned it all into a mess. Taste good, but very ugly. Maybe a skewer to hold it together next time. Good recipe! Thanks! slope game
