One might be wondering, why oil-free? Why air-fryer? In short, this allows people to eat “deep fried” vegan food, without the excess calories.

Oil-free food also has a lower fat percentage, generally, than other foods. While oil is healthy to consume in moderation, a diet reliant on greasy foods can lead to health problems. Due to this, many health-conscious consumers opt to focus their plant-based diet on whole-foods.

If you want to trial a healthier cooking regime, expand your cooking knowledge, or just try something new in the kitchen, consider investing in an air-fryer and giving these nine vegan recipes a whirl!
