Oh gosh, these Air Fryer Crispy Brussels Sprouts are absolutely incredible. Both of my girls hate brussels, but ate these. In my opinion, that is a BIG mom win! The best part about these delicious little green sprouts is they can be whipped up in 15 minutes. Additionally, these are Whole30, Keto, Paleo and Macro Friendly. Delicious and healthy! The best combination

The air fryer, in my opinion, is a MUST HAVE kitchen gadget. It gives food the perfect crisp without actually frying. Further, it heats up leftovers like a boss. I will throw in leftovers for 2-3 minutes and the texture turns out perfect every single time.

These are super simple to make and only take minimal ingredients. 1 pound of sprouts, cut in half, nutritional yeast, olive oil and salt/pepper. Yup, that’s all! I simply spray my air fryer basket and set to 380F for 15-18 minutes.

TIPS for these Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts:

  • Don’t overcrowd the sprouts in the basket: Make sure the basket isn’t too full. If it is too crowded they will not cook properly and get that nice crisp we all long for.
  • Flip halfway: Flipping halfway is a MUST. Set a timer and at the 7 minute mark, remove the basket and give the sprouts a nice toss. This will allow them to cook more evenly and get crispy all over.
  • Spray your sprouts with cooking spray: Before cooking, I always give my sprouts a nice mist of olive oil cooking spray. In addition, I also do it again when I toss at the halfway mark. I find that it allows them not to dry out.
  • 5 Quart Air Fryer: This size will get the job done the first time. If you own or buy smaller, be ready to cook all your recipes in batches. I highly recommend the 5 or 7 Quart.

Description

These Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts are super crispy and perfect to dip in ranch. They require minimal ingredients and only take 15 minutes to make. The perfect side dish or appetizer, even kid friendly. Whole30, Keto, Paleo and Macro Friendly. 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 lb brussels sprouts, ends trimmed and cut in half
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, add the prepared brussels sprouts along with the 2 tbsp of olive oil, nutritional yeast and salt/pepper.
  2. Give the whole bowl a big toss until the olive oil and nutritional yeast completely coats the sprouts. 
  3. Turn the air fryer to 380F and set the timer for 15 minutes. 
  4. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray and add in the prepared sprouts. Make sure not to over crowd the sprouts in the basket. If you overcrowd them they will not get crispy and cook correctly.
  5. At the 7 minute mark, remove the basket and give it a good shake. After you shake, spray the sprouts with some more cooking spray so they don’t dry out too much. 
  6. Place the basket back into the air fryer and cook until the 15-18 minute mark. This will depend on the . I like to take mine out around 15 minutes. 
  7. Once cooked, transfer the crispy brussels sprouts into a serving dish along with some homemade ranch for dipping. 
  8. Enjoy!

Notes

  • SET A TIMER: Make sure to set a timer so you don’t forget to toss the sprouts at the 7 minute mark.
  • Double the Recipe: If you are wanting to double this recipe, you will more than likely need to cook in 2-3 different batches to ensure even cooking. 
  • The Air Fryer I use: 5 Quart GoWise Air Fryer and love it. 
  • Leftovers: If you have left overs, store in an air tight container. To reheat, add to the air fryer on 350F for 4 minutes or so.
