Low Carb diets have been popular for years now, and since air fryers are all the rage, Michelle Fagone’s The "I Love My Air Fryer" Low-Carb Recipe Book: From Carne Asada with Salsa Verde to Key Lime Cheesecake, 175 Easy and Delicious Low-Carb Recipes is very timely. In this excellent cookbook, Fagone has covered all the bases to keep the recipes low carb, but tasty. Most of the recipes are also gluten-free, since alternative flours have lower carb counts.
Many of the recipes have minimal ingredients, and the recipes are written in such a way that they also take minimal time to make. While there are beautiful photographs, it seems there aren’t enough of them, which is probably the only negative about this cookbook. The positives are not only excellent information on using air fryers and low carb ingredients, but especially the recipes. Fagone uses ingredients in interesting ways, such as a new favorite, Bacon Vegetable Morning Hash which pairs bacon and Brussels sprouts in a hash-type dish that is luscious. Other new favorites include Pecan-Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken Breasts with only three ingredients, and a Chopped Steakhouse Salad. Low carb dieters will find dozens of tempting recipes that they can make for themselves and also feed others.
Low carb diets are often boring, and this cookbook introduces dishes that not only aren’t boring, but are actually appealing, which helps dieters stick to their diets. Even non low carb dieters will find dozens of dishes in this cookbook that they can enjoy even when not on the diet. Since many of the dishes are crisp on the outside, Fagone uses low carb ingredients such as crushed pork rinds to produce the crispness. Anyone on a special diet expects that they may have to shop for special ingredients to create the dishes they want to eat, so even though many of the dishes call for items that may not be in the house already, most are easily obtained from any mainstream grocery store.
All told, this cookbook is a winner.
