Air fryers are a veggies best friend because they create amazing crispy or roasted dishes in a flash with little to no oil. And speaking of flashes, they don’t heat up your entire house, which makes them perfect for year-round use.

Nobody wants to serve vegetables with a side of boob sweat.

I love using my air fryer for vegetable recipes but you can cook so much more in it! Air Fryer Egg Rolls and Air Fryer Tofu are both family favorites. 

Air Fryer Tools

You’re going to need an air fryer (duh…). I have the Power XL air fryer, but other great options are Cosori and Ninja.

If you are interested in using your air fryer for more than vegetables (and you should!), you will want to invest in an accessories pack like this one from Amazon.

Using a Misto is a great way to lightly spray veggies with olive oil to get the perfect crisp on your food.

If you have a pressure cooker but no air fryer, Mealthy has created a lid that turns your pressure cooker into an air fryer. I KNOW. 

The Mealthy CrispLid works with any 6 or 8-quart electric pressure cooker on the market. I have one and it rules.

  1. Your link to the Mealthy goes to the Mealthy Multiply not the lid. A quick Google search showed several sites that mention the item and/or sells them.

    I’ve wanted something like this item for a while but was unaware one existed. I don’t like sauteeing or pan trying because it’s so messy and unhealthy. Thank you!

  2. When I click on your shishito link I only see the pan fry method which I love and use all the time.  However, I’m interested to know how they turn out in the air fryer.  Any tips?
