Air Fryer Vegan Recipes

Welcome to air fryer vegan recipes. Originally a list of just 21 magical ways to cook the vegan way in the air fryer, it has now been updated to reflect 39+ delicious air fryer vegan recipes on Recipe This. We hope you enjoy our 2020 update!

I have always admired the vegan and the plant-based diet. It always seems to me as the healthiest diet that you could ever be a part of.

I hate all these diets that focus too much on processed foods or eating excessive amount of meat.

If you look at our grandparent’s generations and the World War 2 rations it was very close to the vegan lifestyle.

Yes, they had meat and dairy but as it was in such small portions it was like they were vegan 5 times a week.

They relied heavily on their home-grown fruit and vegetables and probably got 10 portions of fruit and veg a day rather than the recommended 5.

But even though I know it is the healthiest I could possibly be, I could never last on the vegan lifestyle.

I love my Greek Yoghurt, Cheese and Honey too much. But I could probably go vegetarian again if I wanted to.

Though with having such a meat obsessed husband he might not forgive me!

So, in the Milner house our compromise and eat a few times a week vegan and a few times a week vegetarian. I make sure the vegan and vegetarian meals have the wow factor and that you don’t feel like you are missing out.

After updating our air fryer vegetarian recipes for you last week, today we are showing you that vegan air fryer recipes are AMAZING and that it is a great way to eat a little healthier.

Vegan Recipes For An Air Fryer

If you have ever wondered what to cook in an air fryer that is vegan, then this list of air fryer vegan recipes is for you.

When I cook vegan I tend to cook the main dish in my instant pot, such as my instant pot vegan split pea soup and then the sides get cooked in the air fryer. It then bulks out a meal when I am feeding a family of five.

This list of air fryer vegan recipes is made up of side dishes, snacks and some of my favourite air fryer breakfast recipes.

If you are vegan, or just love vegan recipes, then this list is a great starting point and a learning curve for what your air fryer is capable of.

Best Air Fryer For Vegetarians & Vegans?

There is no secret of the fact, that us at Recipe This are big fans of the Philips Air Fryer.

We have both the Philips Air Fryer XL and the Philips Air Fryer XXL. Both do an amazing job but if I was going to recommend the best air fryer for vegans, I would recommend the Philips Air Fryer XL.

This is because many people choose the larger XXL model so that it is big enough to cook a whole chicken, but as a vegan, this is something you are never going to cook, so why bother getting something that you don’t need?

Or if Philips Air Fryer is too expensive, do have a read about how to get a cheap air fryer on eBay, as well as consider the Gowise USA air fryer or have a read of our Cosori Air Fryer review.

Top 10 Air Fryer Vegan Recipes

top 10 best air fryer vegan recipes
  • Air Fryer Fries – I love cooking air fryer fries and isn’t that why we all went and bought an air fryer? You can make them with very little oil and then add in your favourite seasonings. I will season my fries around the rest of the meal that I am having.
  • Air Fryer Veggie Fries – I love to cook veggie fries in the air fryer. They are easy to prep, and you can use any veggie leftovers that you need to use up.
  • Air Fryer Frozen Sprouts – My favourite frozen vegetable to cook in the air fryer. They don’t break when you toss them in seasoning and come out perfect every time. Plus, it saves prepping them ahead of time.
  • Air Fryer Rutabaga Fries – Delicious French fries made with rutabaga. Though you might also know it as swede if you are British or neeps if you are Scottish. Peel and slice like you do with fries and a great alternative if you are going lower carb than potatoes.
  • Air Fryer Frozen Cauliflower – Cook frozen cauliflower in an air fryer and there is no going back. It tastes amazing, you can cook it for longer for blackened cauliflower and add in your favourite seasonings.
  • Air Fryer Baby Potatoes – OMG I love baby potatoes in the air fryer. Truly crispy, loaded with your favourite seasoning and hardly any extra virgin olive oil.
  • Air Fryer Roast Potatoes – I love lots of roast potatoes tossed in rosemary and sometimes with garlic too. This is how to make them in the air fryer.
  • Air Fryer Potato Wedges – The first recipe we ever published on Recipe This and since updated, these make the perfect side dish for a hearty vegan dinner.
  • Air Fryer Veggie Pakoras – If you love Indian cuisine and want an easy air fryer vegan Indian recipe, then you must try these pakoras. Made from fridge leftovers, this is a fantastic frugal snack too.

Plant Based Air Fryer Recipes Without Oil

If you are looking for fat free vegan air fryer recipes, or oil free vegan air fryer recipes then here are a few extra suggestions:

  • Air Fryer Chickpeas – My all time favourite vegan recipes and one that I snack on in the air fryer the most. Jorge is always there whenever I open a can of chickpeas as he is also an air fryer chickpeas addict.
  • Air Fryer Pumpkin Wedges – I love to cut up the pumpkin into wedges and air fry them. A much healthier, low carb alternative to potato wedges and very addictive.
  • Air Fryer Avocado Fries – Another favourite low carb and plant based air fryer recipe is air fryer avocado fries. Delicious and perfect for a lunch box snack and perfect for a salad side dish.
  • Mediterranean Air Fryer Vegetables – Because these Mediterranean vegetables are quick cooking, they require no oil. These are delicious though and I make them as an alternative to fajitas.

Air Fryer Frozen Vegan Recipes

Here is my pick of my favourite frozen vegan food in the air fryer.

Though do note, there are plenty of vegan friendly food that you can find in your grocery store and cook in the air fryer.

Also, some brands might be vegan, and some might not, so do check on the packaging before purchasing.
