7 vegan Air-Fryer recipes to help you keep your New Year’s resolutions

There has been no better time to be vegan; the lifestyle is rapidly gaining popularity around the world and vegan options are in abundance. But now that virtually every “guilty pleasure” has been veganized, a generic vegan diet does not always equate to a healthy diet. If your New Year’s resolution involves a little less fast food and fewer trips to your favorite bakery, it may be time to invest in an airfryer. Recreate your favorite dishes, from fried rice to brownies, with this innovative appliance that will quickly have a permanent place on your tabletop.

1 Orange Tofu from Veggies Save the Day

This oil-free tofu is sweet and spicy, crispy and yet tender – perfectly reminiscent of fast-food orange chicken, but without the cruelty or the excess calories. It’s also quick to throw together. You can have dinner on the table faster than postmates could get to your door, and once your meal is homemade, there is no need to tip. Serve with a side of steamed broccoli and plain rice or cauliflower rice for a delicious, nutritious evening meal.

2 Fried Rice from Glue & Glitter

Another takeaway classic, fried rice gets a healthy, vegan spin with an airfryer. Replacing cauliflower rice with white rice also cuts calories and strengthens the fiber so you will feel full, not deprived. The recipe is rounded off with tofu (or your favorite vegan protein) and a generous serving of vegetables, making it a complete meal you can plop in your stomach while watching Netflix all night long.

3 Buffalo Cauliflower from The Foodie Eats

Buffalo cauliflower has become a bit of a trend in restaurants; even non-vegan places have added it to their menus. While it’s a good start to subbeing cauliflower for chicken, many of these establishments still fry this tasty appetizer and use a quantity of butter that raises eyebrows in the sauce. This recipe cuts far down on the vegan butter and skips the frying pan all the way over. The result is an equally satisfying snack that will not weigh you down later.

4 Golden Turmeric Falafel from Living Vegan

Falafel is a vegan staple, but many store-bought and restaurant varieties deep-fry these traditional chickpea steaks. Get the same crispy edge with a soft and creamy interior by using your airfryer instead. Add a little turmeric for a little color and flavor, then serve your perfectly “fried” fries with vegan tzatziki sauce and tabouli.

5 Animal Style Fries from From My Bowl

Who says you can not enjoy the occasional french fries while on a New Year’s health kick? Just use your airfryer. But do not settle for simple ketchup and mustard to decorate french fries – make them in animal style. It may seem a little indulgent, but this homemade special sauce and the caramelized onions are both oil-free. Go on, get lost. A sustainable diet is one you enjoy!

VegNews.crumble Healthy slow cooking

For some people, if there is pie left in the fridge, it will be breakfast. It’s a fun occasional treat, but not exactly “clean-eating” approved. When you feel like dessert, treat yourself to an individual, air-fried fruit pie, and you do not have to worry about any leftovers ringing in the morning.

Do you need a brownie, but do not have the time, energy or willpower to resist pampering an entire batch? These oil-free small serving bars of chocolate goods assemble quickly and use basic ingredients that you probably have on hand. You can also customize them; add chocolate chips, nuts or a little espresso powder to a personalized mocha brownie. Whatever you choose, be sure to serve with a tall glass of milk-free milk. Cheers for balance and sustainable New Year’s resolutions!
