Yaaaaaaas. I love fried eggplant cubes but hate actually frying things. The air fryer makes quick work of eggplant, turning it into crisp little nuggets in 10 minutes. Delicious!

Air Fryer Eggplant with Vegan Yogurt Sauce
1 large purple eggplant
Spritz or spray oil
2 Tbsp Skyr-style soy yogurt
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp pomegranate molasses
1 Tbsp tahini
Generous sprinkle salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Cube your eggplant into 1/4-inch pieces. Add to a large bowl and toss with a generous sprinkle salt. Let sit 5-10 minutes.
Preheat your air fryer to 200C/400F for 3 minutes.
Mix the yogurt, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, tahini and garlic powder in a small bowl. Taste for seasoning and add salt as necessary.
Toss your salted eggplant with a generous amount of curry powder, add to the basket of your air fryer, and hit with a spritz or two of oil. Fry, shaking occasionally, 10 minutes or until your desired level of crispness is achieved.
Serve with the yogurt sauce and your protein of choice.
