Get ready to fall in love with Brussel sprouts: The ultimate air fryer recipe


Hey there, foodies! Are you looking to level up your veggie game? If so, you need to get on the Brussel sprouts train. Wait, don't leave! I know they got a bad rap in the past, but trust me, Brussel sprouts can be unbelievably delicious. And today, I'll be sharing with you the ultimate Brussel sprouts recipe using the air fryer.



What are Brussel Sprouts?

First things first, let's talk about what Brussel sprouts actually are. They are part of the cabbage family and are packed with vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. These little green gems are low in calories and carbs but high in flavor and versatility. Roasting them can bring out their natural sweetness and crispiness, making them a perfect side dish for any meal.


To make these heavenly sprouts in the air fryer, you'll need the following ingredients:


  • One pound of Brussel sprouts (fresh or frozen)

  • Two tablespoons of olive oil

  • One teaspoon of salt

  • One teaspoon of black pepper

  • Optional seasoning: garlic powder, chili flakes, parmesan cheese


Once you have your ingredients ready, follow these simple steps:


  1. Wash and trim the Brussel sprouts. Cut off the bottom stem and any yellow outer leaves. If your sprouts are on the larger side, you can cut them in half for more even cooking.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, salt, and black pepper. Add in your optional seasonings if desired.

  3. Toss the Brussel sprouts in the seasoning mixture, making sure each sprout is coated evenly.

  4. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F. Place the seasoned sprouts in the basket in a single layer, making sure they aren't touching each other too much.

  5. Cook for about 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket every 5 minutes, until the sprouts are crispy and golden on the outside and tender on the inside.

  6. Serve hot and enjoy!


Pro tips and variations:

  • If you want your sprouts to be extra crispy, you can coat them in a thin layer of cornstarch before seasoning them.

  • You can also add in other veggies like carrots, potatoes, or onions for a tasty one-pan meal.

  • For a vegan option, skip the parmesan cheese and add some nutritional yeast instead. It will give the sprouts a cheesy, nutty flavor.


There you have it, folks! The ultimate Brussel sprouts recipe using the air fryer. I hope I've convinced you to give these tasty veggies a chance. Trust me, they're worth it. Plus, with this recipe, you won't have to deal with the hassle of roasting them in the oven. The air fryer makes it so easy and quick. So go ahead, try it out, and let me know how it goes. Happy cooking!
