Do I Need to Peel Any Veggies?

No! I leave the peel on my zucchinis and squash to keep these air fryer vegetables easy. They will soften up and tenderize just perfectly so I would skip this step. Just make sure that all of your vegetables are sliced into pieces that are about the same size so that they cook evenly.
