Our 5 Best Air Fryer Recipes

While air fryers have been around for some time, there’s no doubt they’ve become one of the top cooking purchases in 2022. So, why have air fryers become the must-have kitchen item over the past year or so? 

Well, they’ve been found to be significantly more cost-effective in terms of energy use than a standard oven, with consumer demand rocketing by 3,000% as people attempt to reduce their energy bills. According to research from Utilita Energy, air fryers cost an average of £55.71 a year compared to the £335.57 it takes to heat up a larger oven.

But there are other benefits to owning an air fryer too. They cook food quickly, with little to no oil, making them popular with dieters. They also crisp food up allowing you to enjoy everything from mouth-watering chips to delicious loaded potato skins. Cooking plant-based products this way is a breeze too – so check out our healthy air fryer recipes. 

Tso Tofu

Did you know that you can achieve crispy, sticky and sweet tofu in the air fryer? As one of the best vegan air fryer recipes around, this dish will drive your tastebuds crazy with its rich flavours and super healthy ingredients. 
There are many ways to cook tofu, but this Chinese takeaway-inspired dish is great for a Friday night, or a midweek treat. For an extra nutty taste, try frying the sesame seeds first in a pan before sprinkling over the top. On a budget as well as a health kick? Then this is the recipe for you.

Salt and Pepper Tofu

Not only will it save you money compared to an actual fast food delivery but it tastes super good (if we must say so ourselves). Soft and chewy on the inside but super crispy on the outside, this flavoursome treat comes with a deliciously sweet sauce and is garnished with sesame seeds and spring onions. We’re not drooling, you’re drooling…
