Crispy Brussels Sprouts – Air Fryer / Oven

Brussels Sprouts Air Fryer Oven Baked 1

Brussels sprouts were never my favorite veggie. In fact we do not have Brussels sprouts in India. They were never grown there. After moving to the US, it took me a while to start eating them. Even then I was not sure how to cook them.

But now after multiple tries, the best way I like them is fried or baked when they become crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. That said, fried is not the healthiest choice and I tend to avoid frying. However since I got my Philips air fryer 4 months back, these have become a staple snack in our house. I have also been trying to reduce carbs and gluten in our diet, so these become an ideal choice.

I was at Trader Joe’s yesterday and see what I found. They were selling a stalk of Brussels sprouts. I instantly bought them as I am sure many people have never seen these. Today we will use these and make Amazing Crispy Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts.

How to make roasted Brussels Sprouts in the Air Fryer?

Here is a quick 1-minute video showing the recipe steps:

Firstly, if you find a stalk of Brussels sprouts, then remove them from the stalk. You don’t need a knife, just push them downwards with your fingers and they should pop out. Most of the time, I just find them in a bag at the grocery store, which is great too. Some people have asked if they can use frozen one’s. However I recommend to use fresh one’s for the best crispy taste.

Rinse them with water to clean and pat dry with a paper towel. I used about 10 sprouts for this recipe (about 7-8 oz). Cut the bottom stem, then cut each brussels sprout in half.

Toss the brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Garlic powder is certainly optional, but I love the taste. If you like a them spicy add chili flakes.

Air fry them at 360°F for 12 minutes or until they are slightly browned on the outside. Shake them half way through.

How to bake Brussels Sprouts in the oven? 

Follow the same process to get the brussels sprouts mixed with olive oil and seasoning. Spread them on a baking tray. Bake in oven at 400°F for 20-25 minutes. Cooking time may vary depending upon your oven and the size of sprouts.

Drizzle some lime juice. Enjoy as is or with a dip of garlic thyme mayonnaise. They are divine!!

Some variations:

  1. Toss them in buffalo sauce or sweet sriracha. I have had these at BJ’s restaurant and they are awesome.
  2. Add Parmesan and breadcrumbs with the olive oil before cooking.
