Air-Fried Eggplant Slices

This recipe may sound simple (and it is!) but it is incredibly delicious and is one I come back to time and time again as the perfect accompaniment for any meal.  It is so quick to make that I even whip it up sometimes for a quick snack.

Using an air fryer is an absolute dream, and you may have heard me say it a thousand times, but I’ll say it again.  If you don’t have one – get one!

It still feels like magic to me the way an air fryer works.  It creates perfect, crispy food as though you had deep fried it, but is so much healthier for you because it’s not drenched in all that oil.  They work by circulating really hot air down and around the food quickly.  The rapid circulation is what makes the food crisp and simulates frying.

It’s also far safer to use as you don’t have large quantities of hot oil that can catch fire or spill at any moment.

Eggplant pairs beautifully with harissa, which is no surprise really as it comes from India originally and travelled through the world with Persian and Arab traders. It has been used in cooking in the middle east for centuries.
