I love to make Brussel sprouts in the air fryer. I know many people may not be the biggest fans of this vegetable, but wait until you try them fresh out of the air fryer. You’ll never want to cook them another way again!

Do you want to know a little secret? Brussel sprouts are incredibly high in nutritional value. Not only are they rich in antioxidants, but they are also full of Vitamin K and C! This ‘fried’ vegetable is a great healthy option to pair with a lean piece of protein.

The best part about this recipe is how easy and quick it is to make! You only need 4 simple ingredients- salt, pepper, olive oil and of course, Brussel sprouts. That’s it.

Now, you can also dress up these simple Brussel sprouts if you are looking for something a little different and want to try out some different flavor profiles. For example:

  • Garlic Parmesan– Sprinkle on some bread crumbs, garlic powder, and freshly grated parmesan cheese.
  • Honey Balsamic–  Add a little balsamic, honey and dijon mustard.
  • Sweet and Spicy–  Drizzle with honey and toss with some sriracha.

You really can’t go wrong either way!

If you don’t have an air fryer, just use your oven! Prep the Brussels exactly the same way, and then simply add them to a sheet pan with the olive oil and seasonings. Grab the rest of the instructions for making roasted Brussel sprouts in the oven so you can make it next time you need a quick dinner veggie option.

If you have an instant pot, you can try this Instant Pot steamed Brussel sprouts recipe or you can even try to cook this veggie in the microwave for only 4 minutes.

So many options!

How To Air Fry Brussel Sprouts

Before you start to cook, take the time and thoroughly clean each brussel sprout as fresh ones tend to trap dirt. Trim the ends of each brussel sprout and discard the brown end of the brussels sprouts. Soak in a bowl of cold water until they are completely clean.

Pat them dry and cut the brussels sprouts into quarter cuts- lengthwise.

After they have been cut, add the brussels sprouts to a bowl and toss them with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Place prepared brussels sprouts in the air fryer basket. Cook the brussels sprouts for about 15 minutes at 325F, shaking them halfway through.

If brussels sprouts are not tender after 15 minutes, add an extra 5 minutes. You want to make sure they are crispy and slightly browned all around.
