We love them air fryer recipes because in a short time and with a considerable saving of electricity, they allow you to prepare the same dishes that would otherwise require the use of the oven. Today we try the fennel au gratin in the air fryer, a side dish at the same time quick and easy but also very tasty.
Perfect to accompany main courses of meat and fish, fennel in the air fryer can also be prepared 100% vegetable. In fact, everything lies in the breading: the simple version with breadcrumbs and aromatic herbs is excellent, the version that includes the addition of Parmesan or pecorino is delicious. The beauty of this dish is that it requires very little oil. Use that spray to obtain a uniform distribution.
How to prepare the fennel gratin recipe in the air fryer
First of all wash the fennel well under running water then remove the stems and cut them in half. With a V cut, remove the hardest central part and then cut them into slices about 1 cm thick.
In a dish, combine the breadcrumbs seasoned with freshly chopped parsley, salt and pepper. If you like, add some grated cheese.
Pass the slices of fennel one by one in the compound and as they are ready, place them in the basket of the air fryer.
Drizzle them with a couple of splashes of extra virgin olive oil and cook for 10 minutes at 180°C. Serve them hot or at room temperature.
Among the other recipes with the air fryer, we suggest you also try the carrots in the air fryer, excellent as a side dish.
The fennel au gratin in the air fryer is preserved for a couple of days in the refrigerator, well covered with plastic wrap. You can reheat them, always in the air fryer, for a couple of minutes before consuming them.
