Air fryer crispy cubes

These little cubes of delicious crispy-ness are super quick and super easy…all because of the air fryer!

I’ve kept this recipe simple because once you’ve got the basic technique down to a tea, you can add in whatever seasonings or toppings you want. Maybe a bit of garlic, maybe a sprinkling of chilli flakes or just whatever needs using in your cupboard. I went for some chopped up parsley and a generous helping of parmesan. Any opportunity to add cheese to carbs. Just lovely!

Just bought an air fryer?

If you’re new to the world of air frying, then you’re in for a treat. I’ve got a range of recipes for you to try out that will make put down the bag of frozen chips. If you want a quick and impressive starter, give my coconut shrimp a go or for a truly showstopper main, my crispy porchetta that makes me want to cry meaty tears of happiness, it’s just so beautiful. Don’t forget you can also make a whole host of desserts in that nifty little machine, ranging from soft and chewy cookies and to egg custards and even cheesecakes. It’s honestly saved me so much time and hasn’t compromised on the taste which I know is a concern for some people. I’m not gonna lie though, my favourite thing about this machine is the fact that you’re barely left with any washing up, and I hate washing up with a passion. I always leave it til the morning after, but forget I’ve done that until I walk down the stairs and see all those sad, sorry pots sat there, still waiting.
