Low Fat Air Fryer Recipes

There are many people who are put off hot air fryers as they think they can only do chips in them! Oh how wrong………. If you have poked around this site, you will have already seen the Chicken Tikka Masala video so basically, all you need is a little imagination to adapt some (but not all) of your favourite recipes. Of course there will be some that just won’t work because of the design of the fryers, but I’m sure you will be able to come up with many delicious ideas.

Use even less oil in your chips!

Hot Air Frying

If you want to get rid of even more oil when cooking your chips, try just spraying them with fry-light or similar. This is only one calorie per spray!

If you are familiar with the Slimming World diet, they advocate parboiling chunky chips and then putting them on a tray, spraying them with oil and turning them over half way thru cooking. You can do these in the Actifry or Philips Airfryer without parboiling or turning over (still need to shake the pan halfway through in the Philips though).

Don’t forget your roast potato and parsnips in the Actifry as well…  Oh Yes, if you freeze your own Yorkshire puddings or buy them ready frozen, you can throw them in your Philips Air Fryer for a couple of minutes instead of putting the oven on. Give them the usually shake and watch you don’t over do them – it’s quick!

Give this a try in your air fryer today and see what you think!

Variations on Chips and Wedges

You can jazz up your chips and wedges with the simple addition of some extras.

Try crumbling an oxo cube (any flavour) in the oil before you pour it over.

Or, add any of the following to the oil to vary the taste.

Crushed garlic
tsp mixed dried herbs
tsp paprika
tsp cracked black pepper
