Easy Air Fryer Recipes

Air fryers are a popular purchase among homeowners. They’re so in demand that we risk leaving microwaves and toaster ovens everywhere jealous. Whether you recently got one or you’re a seasoned pro at whipping up a quick meal, there are tons of recipes online worthy of your fork and plate. Here are a few of our favorites: 

Air-Fried Tofu

There may be no better time to try tofu than when you’re on your best, New Year’s resolution-inspired behavior. A great substitute for fat-heavy meats, tofu is packed with nutrients and protein. Thanks to this recipe, which makes use of paprika, sea salt, onion powder, soy sauce, and sesame oil, it’s full of flavor, too. 

Air-Fried Brussels Sprouts

Due to the revamping of their image (and, let’s face it, balsamic vinegar) Brussels sprouts are enjoying a bit of a culinary heyday. A popular side item to order at restaurants, now you can perfect that coveted crispiness in the comfort of your kitchen. Pair a bowl with chicken or rice, or eat it as a standalone snack.

Air-Fried Brown Rice

One of the best things about this dish is that you can make use of those leftovers sitting in your fridge (although you can use fresh rice, as well). This healthy take on fried rice is packed with fiber, helping you stay fuller longer. Add whatever veggies you want, or top it off with chicken or beef.

Air-Fried Salmon

Salmon is one of those proteins that’s not always easy to get right, but this air-fryer recipe helps you perfect pescetarianism in just 10 minutes. Tender on the inside and flaky on the out, the filet pairs well with a mustard topping that complements the fishiness with the ideal amount of spice. 

Air-Fried Orange Pecan French Toast

There’s no reason you have to pull out your air fryer strictly for dinner meals (but there’s also no reason why french toast can’t be dinner!). This orange pecan french toast recipe uses butter, brown sugar, orange zest, orange juice, corn syrup, pecans, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla to bring a little sweetness to your day. It’s an easy-to-make recipe but one that takes about two hours (including an hour of refrigeration time). 

It turns out that you can air fry just about anything. Try one of these recipes to discover why these handy gadgets are worth all the rage.
