Air Fryer Taco Boats  

COST PER SERVE: $6.15

 

Serves: 4 (makes 8 boats)

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 45 minutes

 

Ingredients:

  • 8 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 bunch broccolini, trimmed and cut into 4cm lengths
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 200g button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cups (240g) grated cheese
  • 8 Stand 'n Stuff soft tortilla boats

 

Method:

  1. Whisk eggs, milk and garlic powder together in a large bowl.
  2. Steam, microwave or boil broccolini until just tender. Cool under cold water to prevent overcooking. Drain and set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook mushrooms until golden and softened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle half the cheese into the base of 8 tortilla boats. Divide mushrooms and broccolini into boats, pour ½ cup of egg mixture into each. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Place 4 boats into an air fryer basket and cook at 160°C for 20 minutes. Repeat with remaining boats.

 

Tips & Hints:

●        Oven method: bake in oven 180°C (fan-forced) for 25-30 minutes.

●        Store cooked taco boats in the refrigerator for 2 days, or wrap and freeze separately for 1 month. Defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Reheat in the microwave, or in the air fryer on low for 10 minutes.

●        Place unused tortilla boats in a sealed container and refrigerate or freeze.

●        Other flavour combinations include chicken and corn, pesto and salami or feta and spinach.
