  1. Please provide conventional oven instructions. A lot of people do not have an air fryer. I frequently find a recipe that sounds good, but the only instructions are for an air fryer.

    1. Hi Denise. I try to offer multiple instructions for many of my recipes, but some of them do specify a cooking appliance. For this recipe, you can roast the veggies in the oven at 450°F degrees for about 30 to 40 minutes.
