#20 – Vegan onion rings
Vegan onion rings are rare on restaurant menus, because they’re often made with milk or eggs in the batter.
However, they’re a breeze to prepare at home!
Pan fry them, or use the air fryer.
#19 – Air fryer ravioli
Fried ravioli isn’t just for restaurants!
It’s easy to make at home with store-bought vegan ravioli and the air fryer.
Finish it with a panko coating. Then add marinara for dipping!
#18 – Air fryer tortilla strips
Turn that corn tortilla into crispy air fryer tortilla strips.
They add crunch to salads and soups.
#17 – Vegan arancini
Leftovers don’t get better than this vegan arancini!
They get perfectly crispy on the outside. Warm & melty on the inside. They are endlessly dreamy.
Serve as an appetizer or entrée along with warmed marinara for dipping.
#16 – Vegan pulled pork
#15 – Pickle salsa
Pickle salsa is a salty snack you’re going to crave!
Use it as a dip with potato chips or tortilla chips.
Or pile it onto veggie burgers as a garnish.
Either way, you’re going to love it!
#14 – Reuben jackfruit sandwich
If you’re a reuben fan, you’ve got to try this vegan reuben jackfruit sandwich.
It’s made with corned jackfruit, crunchy sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing on marbled rye.
It has an addictively good flavor that keeps you going back bite after bite.
#13 – Pickled red onions
Pickled red onions are a refrigerated staple!
They instantly elevate tacos, rice bowls, or ramen.
#12 – Raw tacos with walnut filling
Walnuts are a magician in this recipe for raw tacos.
When seasoned with tamari, cumin, ancho chili powder, and paprika, walnuts become taco meat.
The addition of sun-dried tomatoes gives the taco meat a wonderful sticky texture & subtle sweetness.
Best of all, raw tacos are ready in under 15 minutes!
#11 – Beer battered fried pickles
Beer battered fried pickles bring the fun to parties and games nights.
They’re a crowd-pleasing snack or appetizer that’s a guaranteed hit.
They can be made in the air fryer or pan fried.
Serve with vegan ranch dressing for dipping.
#10 – Falafel bowl
#9 – Celery & cucumber juice
This hydrating celery & cucumber juice is made with celery, cucumbers, apple, and/or lemon.
Nothing like a morning glass of green juice to make you feel like you have a leg up on the day!
(Don’t have a juicer yet? My juicer has served me well for a decade!)
#8 – Gin & tonic
It’s all about the details when it comes to the perfect gin and tonic.
Make the best version of that classic cocktail with the addition of lime and fresh mint.
It’s a refreshing cocktail for summer. But the piney vibes of the gin also make it great for winter months.
#7 – Vegan French dip sandwich
If you haven’t made this vegan French dip sandwich yet, what are you waiting for?
This hearty sandwich is filled with savory jackfruit, sautéed onions, and horseradish mayo on toasted ciabatta.
Then it’s served with a full-bodied au jus for dunking.
Sandwiches don’t get more comforting than this!
#6 – Air fryer baked potato
With this air fryer baked potato, you get a beautifully crisp peel, and pillowy interior.
Once the air fryer entered my life, I started making baked potatoes a whole lot more often.
They cook so much faster – in just 35 to 40 minutes.
It can be a side dish or a full meal on its own with three bean chili.
#5 – Pickle vodka
#4 – Fried artichoke hearts
Impress your dinner guests with an appetizer of fried artichoke hearts!
Even when they come from a humble can or jar, artichoke hearts always feel a little fancy.
Take them up a notch further by coating them in seasoned panko and popping them in the air fryer.
(I give pan fried directions too!)
Finish with a side of lemon garlic aioli for dipping.
#3 – Air fried potato peels
Peeling potatoes for mashed potatoes or soup?
Don’t let those peels go to waste with this recipe for air fried potato peels!
Throw them into the air fryer for a crispy snack.
They’re a delicious treat while you wait for your main course to cook.
#2 – Creamy cashew salad dressing
This creamy cashew salad dressing has flavor in spades.
It has a cashew base, which makes it wonderfully creamy.
Then it has tamari for umami, lemon for brightness, cilantro for herbaceousness, and a hit of garlic for kick.
When it comes to salads, a flavorful dressing makes all of the difference in the world.
It’s so much easier to fill up on leafy greens when they’re covered in something enticing.
#1 – Orange creamsicle cocktail
The most highly trafficked post of the year is this recipe for an orange creamsicle cocktail.
That favorite frozen treat of yore gets an adult twist with this alcoholic drink.
With freshly squeezed orange juice, gin (or vodka), and a splash of vanilla almond milk, people have been loving this refreshing beverage.
