JL's The Vegan Air Fryer and Cheesy Potato Wedges (recipe below).

Welcome to our video review of JL Field's new cookbook, The Vegan Air Fryer! If you didn't already know, we love our air fryers, so this is a fitting kick-off/inaugural review for us. We're also super pleased to share a recipe from this book with you, along with a chance for you to win your own copy!

We reviewed The Vegan Air Fryer from a vegan & gluten-free perspective, and made several dishes, tweaking a couple along the way to adapt them as necessary. The Vegan Air Fryer is super gluten-free friendly; out of 80 total recipes, we counted at least 60 recipes that were already gluten-free, or could be made so with easy adaptions. If you're more of an inventive cook, there are even more possibilities, if you're willing to play around with flour subs (we didn't want to futz too much in our review, but will definitely give some a whirl in the future).

General Tso's Soy Curls made refined-sugar free with coconut sugar.

What we made: General Tso's Soy Curls, Vegan Wings, and Air Fried Sushi.

What we still want to cook, there are lots! But specifically: Cheesy Potato Wedges (recipe below), Tofu Bacon Wraps, Barbecue Potato Chips, Jalapeño Poppers, Spicy Mac 'n' Cheese Balls, Baked Spaghetti, and Soy Curl Kimchee Spring Rolls.

We tucked both versions of the Soy Curls we made into Air Fried Sushi with delicious results!

The Vegan Air Fryer is a great book if you're new to veganism or air-frying, or both. The recipes make simple and tasty comfort food, and the book gives a good, uncomplicated foundation on how to use different air fryer models.

Vegan Wings made gluten-free with Butler Soy Curls.

Here's the giveaway! Vegan Heritage Press is offering a free copy of The Vegan Air Fryer to one of our U.S. readers. To be eligible to win, please leave a comment on this post with an easy way to reach you. All eligible comments must be posted by July 26th, 10 PM PST. Good luck!

The Vegan Air Fryer: Cheesy Potato Wedges
(vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free)
Serves 4 

Try these potato wedges if you love potato skins but want that potato, too. This is a great side dish and also a fun recipe to make for game day noshing. (From The Vegan Air Fryer, copyright © 2017 by JL Fields. Used by permission. Photo by Michelle Donner.)


No-Oil Option: Omit the olive oil.

✿ 1 pound fingerling potatoes
✿ 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
✿ 1 teaspoon kosher salt
✿ 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
✿ ½ teaspoon garlic powder

Cheese Sauce
✿ ½ cup raw cashews
✿ ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
✿ ½ teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons to ¼ cup water

Potatoes: Preheat the air fryer to 400°F for 3 minutes. Wash the potatoes. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and transfer them to a large bowl. Add the oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to the potatoes. Toss to coat. Transfer the potatoes to the air fryer. Cook for 16 minutes, shaking halfway through the cooking time.

Cheese Sauce: Combine the cashews, turmeric, paprika, nutritional yeast, and lemon juice in a high-speed blender. Blend on low, slowly increasing the speed and adding water as needed. Be careful to avoid using too much water, as you want a thick, cheesy consistency.

Transfer the cooked potatoes to an air fryer–safe pan or a piece of parchment paper. Drizzle the cheese sauce over the potato wedges. Place the pan in the air fryer and cook for 2 more minutes at 400°F.

  1. This cookbook sounds so nice. I love my air fryer, too! I can't wait to try out your bagels and serve them on my awesome vintage pink platter!

  2. Congratulations on your new blog, first video review and what looks to be an amazing e-book!
    While the review was great, the puppy stole the show. :)
    Love air frying, and have been doing so for years now. (Old t-fal fryer and now with the Breville multi oven)

  3. Thanks for the review. I have the book but am waiting for my air fryer to arrive in the mail. MAybe the box will be pink!

  4. Yay! I love seeing my two friends together in a video - and Vee, of course, with his perfect pink nose. I love that you two also call it your Air Fryer Baby. David and I do the same thing! We even sing the Muppet Babies theme song about it. "AirFryer Baby, you make our dreams come true. Air Fryer Baby, we'd do the same for you..." Too much info? Apologies. ;)

    1. Never TMI. Ha ha ha. Please film that!

  5. Such a great review of JL's book! You're making me want an air fryer...it's definitely on my wish list. ;) I love all the pink in the accent pillows next to Kittee on the couch! xoxo

  6. So fun! Excited to try the fryer. I wish more pink things were involved, but pink is fun and pink is rad and I'm not feeling at all bad, about that. ;) yay!

  7. Sounds so good! You can reach me at karengdelaney *at* Yahoo (dot} com

  8. This recipe sounds great and I want to try everything you have tried!! You can teach me at anewman80 *at* gmail (dot) com

  9. Love the new website. I got an air fryer about two months ago, and have been experimenting a bit. The cookbook sounds like it would help a lot. By the way, my air fryer's black, not pink.

  10. I'm tickled pink to see your first video review. I didn't think I needed an air fryer, but I definitely do. Off to shop....

  11. I have this book and haven't made anything yet, what a slouch I've been! I should make the sushi and hopefully some umeboshi plums will turn it a bit pink. love to see Vee <3 and your house Kittee.

  12. Karen DiFonzo on FBJuly 19, 2017 at 12:33 PM

    Loved your review. This book would be a great birthday gift for me.

  13. This looks so good! All your recipies are always 100!
    I'm reachable at ashercraw -at- gmail -dot- com

  14. I've been meaning to buy this book, and your super review finally pushed me over the edge! I have an air-fryer waiting for me in Atlanta (but it's black, not pink like I wanted!) Love you guys! -Bobbi B

  15. Wow, I had no idea that an air fryer didn't heat up your kitchen, I would have hit one last year when we had weeks of 90+ degree weather! This recipe book sounds amazing and you both did a great job reviewing it. By the way, I loved the pillow next to Kittee, the one with the cute pink hearts!

  16. Great review! Now I'm shopping for air fryers so... thanks?! I'm excited to air fry all the things. I love the GF V bagel idea as well. I just saw a clip of a shop in Toronto that makes lox out of carrots which sounds interesting. More orange than pink but I bet it's worth trying. :)
    ps my gmail is starathena.

  17. Congrats on the blog!!! It's great the air fryer doesn't heat up the kitchen! And I'd love to make desserts in it! Now if I could only veganize battenberg cake...I love the cream and pink checkerboard cake wrapped in delicious marzipan! I wonder if aquafaba works as a good egg white replacer for marzipan...

  18. I wish there was a pink air fryer too!!

  19. I am drooling just imagining all the delicious recipes. I bought Teff Love last year and you keep inspiring me to break out of my ingredient routine. Congrats on the new blog! Tickled pink by your air fryer review.

  20. This review makes me want to splurge on an air fryer, SO BAD!!! Eating a delicious corn dog and jalapeño poppers, while drinking a pink lemonade, on a hot summer day! PS- you two are the most adorable! <3

  21. Thanks for the air fryer video, I'll have to get one of those. I'm also super excited about your e-book series and hope they come out in book form soon. Maybe the publishers will use the pink banners like your la la la bread book? Cute.

  22. Awesome review ladies, love that green and pink pillow. I love my air fryer sooo much, will check this book out.

  23. Such a fun video! I love Vee's cameo!

  24. Just got my air fryer and I'm totally hooked! So far I've used it for just about everything from fresh veggies to tacos! Looking forward to trying some new recipes! vms68 (at) hotmail dot com.

  25. I am planning on getting an air fryer soon -- so this book would be great to win!

  26. That fryer looks simple enough, I love that it won't add heat cause I love in Georgia and it's hot enough! Thank you again Kittee for the invite to the FB group. I love that we all share the passion for the color pink!I'm wearing a pink Doctor Who Adipose tshirt! Share the vegan love!

  27. Love the pink pillow next to Litter. I have an air fryer and this cookbook, now need to get busy and make some of the great sounding recipes.

  28. Love the new blog! Have been thinking about getting an air fryer for the longest... This post has made up my mind to take the plunge :)

  29. My family is looking to go vegan! We have an air fryer so this would be a super book to add to my collection. kripley81@gmail.com
