Nutrition Information

Ingredients And Quantity

Direction

1. Drain the tofu and cut it into three slices lengthwise.

2. Put down a double layer of tea towels or paper towels, place the tofu slices on top, and cover with more towels.

3. Place your hands over the tofu slices and press down, gently increasing pressure, to press enough water out that the towels are noticeably wet. (You can also use a tofu press for this.)

4. Return the tofu to the cutting board and cut each piece into about 10 cubes (one cut down the length and then 5 across.)

5. Place the tofu in a large ziplock bag or bowl.

6. Mix the remaining ingredients well. Pour over the tofu and gently turn the bag or stir the tofu until all sides are coated.

7. Let it marinate at least 10 minutes--the longer you marinate it, the more flavorful it will be.

8. Preheat your air fryer at 390-400F for about 3 minutes. Place the tofu in a single layer in the basket (leaving any marinade behind) and immediately reduce the temperature to around 350F.

9. Air fry for 6 minutes. Use a thin, flexible spatula to loosen the tofu and turn it.

10. Return it to the air fryer and begin checking at 4 minutes to see if it is golden overall and slightly darker at the edges but not overcooked or it will be tough.

11. Use any way you like--my preference is in wraps with plenty of veggies and balsamic vinaigrette--but it's also good in pasta.

Fat Free Healthy Vegan Onion Rings

Ingredients And Quantity

For the Wet Mix:
For the Dry Mix:

Direction

1. Preheat it to 450F if you are using an Oven.

2. Slice the end off of each Onion, and then peel the outer skin off. Carefully cut each Onion into 1/2″ circular portions.

3. Note the “layers” that comprise each Onion portion (like the pattern in a tree trunk). We will be using two Onion “Layers” for each Onion Ring. Using your fingers, carefully press the center portion of each Onion away from two of the Onion Layers, to form a hollow Ring.

4. Repeat with each portion of the Onion until no more circles remain, and then continue with the rest of the Onion portions.

5. Add all of the Wet Mix ingredients to a medium bowl, and stir well.

6. Add all of the Dry Mix ingredients to a separate bowl, and mix well. Then, divide the Dry Mix evenly into two separate bowls. (The Dry Mix gets a little “sticky” with time, and this prevents the mixture from becoming unusable.)

7. Using separate hands for the Wet and Dry mixes, dip each Onion Ring into the Wet Mix, then transfer to the Dry Mix and coat evenly with breadcrumbs.

8. Place onto a greased or lined Baking Tray, or into the basket of your Air Fryer if you are using one. Repeat with the remaining Onion Rings.

Low-Fat Weight Watchers Mozzarella Cheese Sticks Recipes

mozzarella cheese sticks recipe
Total Time: 26 minutes
Servings: 5 (One serving = 2 mozzarella sticks)
Total Calories: 224 kcal

Ingredients And Quantity

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 10 pieces mozzarella string cheese I used Weight Watchers Smoked Flavor
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup marinara sauce

Direction

1. Season the breadcrumbs with salt and pepper.

2. Create a workstation by adding the flour, bread crumbs, and eggs to separate bowls.

3. Dip each string of cheese in flour, then egg, and last the breadcrumbs.

4. Freeze the sticks for one hour so that they harden. This will help the cheese maintain the stick shape while frying.

5. Season your Air Fryer basket before each use so that items do not stick. I like to glaze the basket with coconut oil using a cooking brush.

6. Turn the Air Fryer on 400 degrees. Add the sticks to the fryer.

7. Cook for 8 minutes. Remove the basket. 

8. Flip each stick. You can use tongs, but be careful not to manipulate the shape. I used my hands to flip them. They weren't too hot. 

9. Cook for an additional 8 minutes.

10. Allow the sticks to cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the pan. Some of the sticks may leak cheese on the outside. 

11. Allow the sticks to cool, and then use your hands to correct the shape.
