Welcome to my Philips Airfryer Recipes and more specifically 101 Philips Airfryer Recipes For The Complete Beginner.
I no longer have my receipt for my Philips Airfryer so I can’t give you an exact date, but we did buy our Airfryer at some point during 2011.
Since then we have made that many dishes in our Airfryer we have lost count and this month on RecipeThis.com we wanted to celebrate our 5+ years of Airfryer cooking by sharing our best with you.
We have put together on this page our top 101 Airfryer recipes along with loads of tips and tricks that has come with our airfryer experience. Not to mention a great ebook that you can buy to further your airfryer cooking even more.
Plus if you have landed on this particular blog post, then you will be joining thousands of others that finds us via our Airfryer recipes. You could say that is what Recipe This is known for.
That is probably because Air Fryer cooking has become our life. Without it we wouldn’t be lighter than we were in 2011 and would probably be seriously obese and be a heart attack waiting to happen.
Of course the Airfryer wasn’t the only reason we lost weight but it helped and stopped us feeling like we were going without.
So if this is YOU or if you just love the idea of cooking with air instead of a deep fat fryer then read on……
Is Your Airfryer STILL Sat In The Box?
You will not be alone if this is YOU. There are many of us out there that buy new technology and then afterwards wonder what on earth it is and how easily you could end up breaking it.
I remember buying Dominic his first Ipod. I can’t remember what year it was just that we lived in England at the time. I got talking to a shelf stacker and he was young and male and I wanted his Christmas present advice as I was out of ideas.
Before I knew it he had sold me an Ipod and I wondered what on earth it was and couldn’t believe that something so small could play music.
Of course that was the winter the Ipod launched in Britain.
Dominic stared at it for about a week before it came out of the box and now I couldn’t imagine life without an Ipod. I have a digital one now and use it for when I am either running, power walking or if we are on a long car journey.
But just think if you are scared of getting it out of the box, just think the worst thing that can happen with your Airfryer is that you could burn your chips.
And lets face it, the first time we all used a deep fat fryer or a microwave we had that same fear.
Philips Airfryer Basic Beginner Recipes
To get started with your Philips Airfryer how about some really basic recipes? Recipes that could never go wrong no matter how much you tried to ruin them.
Recipes that taste delicious that your family will think you are amazing just because you bought an Airfryer!
The best ever fries – Okay it always has to start here doesn’t it? The best of the best in the airfryer always starts with fries that taste so bad for you, that you can’t believe that they could possibly be remotely healthy.
Sweet Potato Fries – Or if you are a bit more healthy than white potatoes, then try out these delicious sweet potato fries.
Or go even more healthy by making fries from vegetables – it makes a great change from potatoes and they taste very nice and trust me your kids will eat them if they are like this!
Or go curly to make your potatoes that little bit more exciting!
Then throw over the fries some delicious Sloppy Joe and you have a heavenly meal for you and your kids.
Next on the agenda for super easy in the Airfryer I always make meatballs. They are so simple to make via mixing some ingredients in a bowl together, then throw them in the Airfryer, cook for a few minutes and then you have perfect meatballs.

I am sure after those beginner ideas there will be no stopping you. Though below we have plenty of other great ideas….
Airfryer Paleo Recipes
I have quite a bit of a following among Paleo users. This is because like me they love to eat healthy and prefer to live a low carb/good fats diet. Because they live a diet like this the Airfryer is ideal for them especially when cooking food with just a little olive oil.
Or alternatively if they want to cook a meal that resembles fast food but with a Paleo feel to it.
When I think of Paleo airfryer cooking the first thing that enters my mind is Paleo Pumpkin Muffins. They’re absolutely delicious and we only made them because we had some pumpkin leftover and decided at the last minute to try out some muffins.
Or how about some Southern Fried Chicken that is Paleo approved? Yes REALLY! Or super healthy chicken nuggets that you could fool your kids with as there is no way they would know that they were Paleo!!!
We also love the following Paleo Airfryer Recipes:
- Whole 30 Coconut Prawns
- Whole 30 Lemon Chicken
- Healthy Mediterranean Vegetables In The Airfryer
- Spanish Spicy Potatoes
Airfryer Vegetarian Recipes
I may not have that many vegan airfryer recipes, but I have plenty of vegetarian ones. I simply can’t get enough of them. I love just throwing some vegetables into the Airfryer and making a great dinner or snack with them.
My first favourite vegetarian recipe in the Airfryer has to be my cauliflower burgers. They are so good that even Dominic that is meat obsessed would eat them WITHOUT complaining!
Then next on the agenda with more cauliflower is my honey glazed cauliflower bites. They are so good that you will wish that you are the only person at home so that you don’t have to share them with anyone!
Or next on the list is some cauliflower cheese tater tots, after all who said that cauliflower cheese could only be served as it is originally cooked?
Here are some other great veggie recipes to try out in your Airfryer:
- Airfryer Thai Veggie Bites
- Baked Camembert & Soldiers
- Feta Cheese Dough Balls
- Macaroni & Cheese Toasties

Or one of our favourites chicken corden bleu. You will be shocked by just how crispy it can be in the Airfryer compared to cooking in the oven.
I also love to have cheese straws in my Airfryer and it gives you that delicious best of British flavour. And can you believe you can make them without gluten?
Or what about some delicious chocolate cake that is totally free of gluten? Whenever this is on the menu I always want more!
