Cookbook review

This mouthwatering collection of recipes provides dozens of delicious fried food favorites made diabetes-friendly with the air fryer.

From weeknight meals for the whole family to snacks on the go and even desserts, there’s something in here for everybody. Best of all, each recipe follows the ADA’s dietary and nutritional guidelines.

And a diabetes-friendly diet isn’t a special diet; it’s a smarter diet!Best of all, every recipe has been customized to meet the nutritional guidelines established by the American Diabetes Association making them all diabetes-friendly!I look forward to trying all kinds of recipes.

Some of the ones that caught my eye were Crispy Cauliflower Street Tacos, “Fried” Onion Rings, Tuna Melts, and Buffalo Cauliflower Bites.

The Air Fryer

By now I think you guys know I love my Air Fryer! I use it all the time. It’s like a really fast mini oven for me.

Want to see my Air Fryer recipes?

I just love the kitchen appliance so much that I collected all my recipes in one place. The Easy Air Fryer Cookbook celebrates one of the coolest kitchen inventions in recent memory: the air fryer!

The air fryer has revolutionized home-cooked fried foods.

By using up to 75% less fat than traditional frying methods, they’ve made foods once strictly off-limits to use accessible and enjoyable for the whole family.

And with this cookbook arriving on bookshelves just in time for the holidays, it’s going to be a very happy, healthy, and mouthwateringly good season for all!

Recipe Notes

These easy to make egg rolls are super tasty and very impressive.

They’re crunchy on the outside and filled with tender cooked veggies in a light Asian flavor sauce.

These Spicy Vegetable Egg Rolls would be really easy to change up too.

Want a little more protein? Toss in some chopped tofu. Or try some shredded chicken.

If you don’t follow a diabetes diet you could add in some toasted sesame oil or sesame seeds. Add a bit of sweet and sour sauce to the mix for a little kick.

I want to try added some cooked glass noodles to them as well.Don’t like spicy? Feel free to cut the red pepper flakes in half, or leave them out entirely.

The filling made 6 egg rolls for me, but I figure that’s just more yumminess! And I cooked my egg rolls in two batches so they didn’t sit too closely together and the air could still circulate.

How to roll an egg roll

The egg roll wrappers will dry out if left uncovered, so be sure to cover them with a damp clean cloth as

you work with them.And a really nice thing about making these egg rolls in the air fryer, is if you do happen to rip the wrapper, the filling won’t all spill out when the egg roll cooks. Since it’s sitting in the air fryer, the filling is still contained.

How to roll an Egg Roll: Place about ¼ cup filling on each egg roll wrapper. Brush some of the egg white mixture on the edges of the egg roll wrapper.

Fold up the bottom edge over the filling

Roll an Egg Roll: fold in the sides so that the filling is contained.

Fold in the second side so that the filling is contained.

Roll the egg roll up over the filling

All rolled up and ready to be brushed with egg wash
