We recently asked a select group of influential foodies to tell us what they thought of the ActiFry and challenged them to create an original recipe.
Why? Because you probably already know that the ActiFry can create tasty, crispy, healthy chips – but we want to encourage people to ditch the fatty Friday night takeaway and experiment with other healthy alternatives. Did you know we consume well over half a billion takeaways each year? Pretty astonishing.
So who could turn down a challenge that’s not only creative but good for us too?
Certainly not recipe-innovator and halloumi fan Emily from Recipes & Reviews, who created this beautiful recipe for Crispy Halloumi with Mediterranean Cous Cous. Her mouth-watering creation “with just a tiny bit of oil means just a tiny bit less guilt”. It’s also super-easy to make, so really there’s no reason to say no, is there?
If you’re looking for something pretty impressive, we can recommend following Target Little Black Dress blogger Kerry’s amazing weight loss journey. The ActiFry makes the perfect accompaniment to a healthy diet after all! Kerry’s been trying chips and roast potatoes in hers, as well as this simple but tasty Prawns in Cajun Spice dish.
Not so crazy is Helen – aka The Crazy Kitchen’s – Beef Bolognese: a simple and delicious dish that can be adapted really easily – using low-fat mince – for those of you counting the calories.
When we say chips, you think potato, right? Well, not after you try these Rosemary Polenta Chips from Charlie’s Kitchen Shed. Inspired by a Jamie’s Italian dish, Charlie’s chips are “deliciously crunchy on the outside… soft and fluffy on the inside”. Clean, delicious ingredients and simple to cook in the ActiFry, we think these are a fantastic alternative to satisfy those cravings.
And it’s not just for dinner! Anyonita Nibbles created this particularly wonderful breakfast dish of scrambled eggs and crispy skillet breakfast potatoes. She describes the eggs as “fluffy and soft” while the potatoes are “perfectly crisp on the outside and billowy soft on the inside”. Sounds pretty perfect to us!
