Welcome to my meatless Monday air fryer Thai veggie bites recipe.

Last Monday for my weekly Meatless Monday recipe I shared with you how to make veggie bake cakes that are a great use of your leftovers, but for some people they may find them a bit boring, or like something that a pensioner would make.

Well I love old and I am still super addicted to the prawn cocktail and chicken liver pate. But like most people I like something with a kick too.

Introducing my Air Fryer veggie bites…..They’re a perfect use out of all that leftover vegetable bits and pieces that you have in the bottom of your fridge.

At the same time it is nice and spicy and shows that vegetarian food doesn’t have to be boring.

Though thanks to my love for cheese it is far from vegan, but you could lose the cheese if you are a vegan.

These beautiful little Thai veggie bites could also be placed on cocktail sticks and would make a great party snack for the festive period.

You could also follow this recipe and achieve something similar with any leftover vegetables that you have in the house.

With it being Boxing Day, I am sure like me you have that bursting fridge that looks like it is going to explode.

If it is like ours it will be full of turkey, vegetables, mince pies and probably something sugary that you didn’t quite manage yesterday!

Well this is something different to do with it and because of the ingredients in this recipe you could stretch your spare vegetables a lot further than you would ever have thought.

Also if you have been at the naughty unhealthy food a lot lately, well here is your chance (between glasses of wine) to get your 5 a day into your diet!

  • In a wok cook your onion with the garlic, ginger and olive oil until the onion has a good bit of colour on it.
  • While you are cooking your onion in a steamer cook your vegetables (apart from the courgette and leek) for 20 minutes or until they are nearly cooked.
  • Add the courgette, the leek and the curry paste to your wok and cook on a medium heat for a further 5 minutes.
  • Add the coconut milk and the rest of the seasoning mix well and then add the cauliflower rice.
  • Mix again and allow simmering for 10 minutes.
  • Once it has simmered for 10 minutes and the sauce has reduced by half, add the steamed vegetables. Mix well and you will now have a lovely base for your veggie bites.
  • Place in the fridge for an hour to allow to cool.
  • After an hour make into bite sizes and place in the Air Fryer. Cook for 10 minutes at 180c and then serve with a cooling dip.


For best results cover your hands in flour and as you make the veggie bites they will soak up the flour and will combine better. Also place the bites onto a baking sheet in your Air Fryer for less tidying up later.

  1. The directions are a bit lacking. I assume that all the veggies are to be cut into tiny pieces, or put into processor? Just would like that clarified, Thanks!
    They sound wonderful, & I am making them today!

    • Hi Nette

      Yes you can chop the vegetables into little pieces if you want to because then they will cook quicker in the steamer but we just did them normal size and when they came out they were soft so very easy to mold with the flour into little bites.

      Kind Regards


  2. Made these but bit sloppy after cooking, couldn’t pick up. Maybe didn’t let mixture thicken enough when cooking?
    Recipe says makes 16 bites, I reckon it’s nearer 40!!
    Rolled out some finger to freeze, hope this is ok.
