When you first get your air fryer, you might be a little overwhelmed with everything you can and want to do with it. Here are some super simple recipes to start with, all of which are healthy and contain lots of nutrients.
This is a recipe that might have a lot of ingredients, but is really easy to put together. Plus, you can have stuffed peppers in a matter of minutes. It is also a healthy option since the majority of the dish is a vegetable, with some lean protein on the inside. Cook your bell peppers in boiling water for a couple minute to soften them after you have removed the seeds and stems. Preheat the air fryer, and while you do that, sautee your onions and garlic in oil. You can then cook the beef and other ingredients like Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and tomato sauce. Fill the peppers with the mixture, and pop them in the air fryer. This is super simple!

If you have been looking for a healthy snack that is easy to prepare ahead of time, why not make some banana chips? You can buy these in bags at the store, but they often contain preservatives in order to keep them fresh. You can reduce the additives and save money by making them yourself. The important thing to keep in mind is that you need to use raw or barely ripe bananas so they aren’t too mushy. Slice the bananas into thin slices and coat them with salt and any seasonings you want to use. Add some olive oil to the chips and place them in the air fryer basket for about 15 minutes.
‘Fried’ Green Beans
A good way to get the kids to eat more vegetables is to make them appear fried. This is much healthier to do when you have an air fryer, plus it makes it super simple. You will prepare the green beans just like most of the fried food for the air fryer. You want to season the green beans first, then create a coating with egg, flour, and breading of your choice. If you want them to be lower carbs, use grated cheese instead of regular breading.
There are many things you can do with an air fryer, these are just some easy recipes to help get you started.
