A collection of 50+ vegan air fryer recipes that includes everything from breakfast to dessert options.
One question I get a lot about air frying is if you can cook anything vegan in it. The answer? Yes! One of my favorite thing to cook in the air fryer is air fryer vegetables (you can see a whole list of air fryer vegetables here), but this list goes way beyond just vegetables.
The vegan air fryer recipes such as vegan donuts, cauliflower wings, onion rings, and so much more, including some recipes with no oil!
