Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts what is a better recipe to serve at dinner or at lunch. They also make a great snack.
The air fryer does a great job roasting most vegetables, but one of my favorites is really the Brussels Sprouts. They are really charred and crispy on the outside but soft and tender on the inside. With a few seasonings and a few dashes of olive oil, you have a winner vegetable dish. And if you are on KETO, this is a very KETO friendly vegetable.
How To Roast Brussels Sprouts in the Air Fryer
- First, when you are at the grocery store look for the perfect batch to roast. You are looking for a firm, bright green Brussels Sprouts.
- Choose Brussels Sprouts that are generally the same size, this way they air fry (cook) at the same time.
- Cut the ends of the Brussels sprouts off. They are hard and really tough if you try to eat them. So use a sharp knife, and cut the ends off.
- Cut the sprouts in half, they air fry better, with the flat surface exposed. The sprout’s edges also get charred nicely as they hit the preheated air fryer.
- As with most air fryer dishes do not overcrowd the air fryer, the air fryer works because it circulates heat around the air fryer basket or tray. If you fill the basket too much, it will constrict the airflow.
- Preheat the air fryer, if you do not have a choice of preheating the air fryer, simply run the air fryer at 375 degrees F (air fryer setting) for 5-7 minutes, before adding the food.
