Oil-Free Air Fryer Onion Rings

When I first became vegetarian I used to order a large burger from a famous fast food restaurant, but I’d ask for no meat and an order of onion rings, which I would place on the burger in place of the meat. I still make a similar sandwich, but now with healthier ingredients.

Quinoa-Stuffed Roasted Tomatoes

This is one of those end-of-summer dishes that you can serve to awe your guests, but it’s just as great when you’re eating alone. Sometimes I make the filling by itself and eat it in tortillas.
