Air Fryer Crispy Green Tomatoes
Crispy, crunchy, and perfect to pair with so many dishes – these fried green tomatoes are so easy and quick.
If you don’t have green tomatoes, firmer tomatoes that are more ripe can work as well.
This recipe is oil-free and features a subtle blend of spices that really bring this dish to life.
They are great served as a side dish, appetizer, light lunch, or a snack and can go well with many different dipping sauces.
If you don’t have an air fryer, you can also bake these in the oven or pan fry with a little olive oil (for a non-oil-free version). However, we love a good air fryer so we’d recommend investing in one!
