Whether you’ve embraced a vegan lifestyle to eat a cruelty-free diet or you’ve embarked upon your vegan journey for health reasons, the need to cook nutritious meals conveniently is important. Luckily, most any food that can be baked or deep fried can also be air fried, thus providing a means to cook healthier vegan meals more quickly. For that reason, Airfrying.net has compiled a list of our favorite air fryer vegan recipes.
Air Fryer Vegan Recipes
While we have offered two new vegan recipes at the end of this post, we also have a couple of other favorites that are definitely worth mentioning.
First, our vegan black bean burgers are a healthy alternative that are packed with nutrients and protein. The best part is that they can be flavored with various spices to suit your palette. Our recipe is seasoned with cumin for a southwestern flavor, which goes well with creamy guacamole or avocado slices for toppings.
If it’s a tasty side dish you’re looking for, we recommend our air fryer brussels sprouts with honey-balsamic marinade. Sweet and tangy, these brussels sprouts are delicious served alongside a main dish or served cold as a satisfying salad.
