Air Fryer Brussel Sprouts Recipe
This is the perfect recipe to make crispy brussels sprouts in less than 12 minutes. Quick and easy with epic flavor from the olive oil, garlic powder, and salt and pepper.
A great vegetable side dish that takes minutes to prepare and tastes amazing.
I have to admit something...I didn't realize that brussel sprouts grew on stalks until I was walking into Trader Joes one day and wondered what the green globes on a stalk were. I had to walk over to the display of them outside the store and investigate what they were.
Thank goodness for store signs explaining what they were. Who knew going grocery shopping could be such an educational moment. LOL!
We used to cook Brussel sprouts in the oven but it felt like it took a long time to heat up the oven and wait for them to cook. Now we are hooked on using our air fryer for all the vegetable side dishes along with a few appetizers and french fries if I am being honest.
I find myself reaching for the air fryer almost every day to whip something up during the day. I love not having to heat the house up with the oven and how easy it is to clean. It is my go-to extra kitchen appliance right now.
- Brussel Sprouts- raw, whole
- Olive Oil/Avocado oil
- Salt and Pepper
- Garlic Powder
Optional seasoning - lemon juice, parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar, kosher salt, red pepper flakes
Air Fryer - We suggest getting an air fryer that is bigger than you think you will need. We found once we started using the air fryer, we ended up using it for more meals and larger meals.
Kitchen Tongs - We highly suggest getting a good pair of kitchen tongs to remove items from the air fryer and save your hands from getting burned.
How to make Air Fryer Brussel Sprouts
Step 1- Clean and cut Brussel sprouts in half
Step 2 - Spray with avocado oil and season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper
Step 3- Spread brussel sprouts in the air fryer evenly in a single layer.
Air fry at 400 degrees, Shake the basket halfway through cooking
Step 4 - Serve hot
We do not preheat the air fryer to 400. We start with a cold air fryer.
If you are making multiple batches of food you will want to lower the cook time for each subsequent batch.
If you are using frozen Brussel sprouts make sure they have space in the air fryer. You may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time.
Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
