Air fryers have caught on; almost everyone owns one, and those who don’t want to. Linda Larsen’s Ninja Air Fryer Cookbook for Beginners: 75+ Recipes for Faster, Healthier, & Crispier Fried Favorites is a great cookbook to start with, no matter what brand of air fryer you are cooking in. This cookbook not only explains everything anyone needs to know about air frying, but also includes quick and easy recipes. Many people think that air fryers are mostly for French fries – and they do a good job on those - but air fryers are much, much more than that.
Larsen has included recipes for Fried Green Tomatoes, Spicy Grilled Steak, and Chicken Fajitas. There are also several recipes that we usually order for take-out from Chinese restaurants, like Beef and Broccoli, General Tso’s Chicken, and Crunchy Pork Egg Rolls. The Panko-Crusted Boneless Pork Chops are fabulous and juicy, and the Crunchy Baja Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa have already become a family favorite. It is amazing that there is such a variety of recipes that can be prepared in the air fryer. Larsen has even included a few desserts.
The recipes are well-written and easy-to-follow; every recipe tried so far has turned out good, and the Air Fry cooking charts are helpful for frozen convenience foods as well as vegetables, fish, poultry and meat. There is also a useful chart on dehydrating fruits and vegetables and making jerky.
If you’re new to an air fryer, you should think seriously about picking up this excellent cookbook. The only drawback is that there are very few photographs – the ones included are nice, but most cooks want to see what the dish will look like before cooking. All told, however, this is a book that should be on the bookshelf of everyone who owns an air fryer.
