I’m a sucker for a good roasted veggie, especially brussel sprouts. My mother in law always prepares a pan of roasted brussel sprouts for Thanksgiving and I’m always the first in line to grab a bunch. Inspired by her recipe, I decided to make my brussel sprouts in the air fryer and add my own little Korean inspired sauce to them.
I love making Asian foods in my Air Fryer, like this Healthier General Tso’s Chicken in the Air fryer and this Crispy Korean Air Fried Chicken Wings. It was just natural that I would follow the same path when it came to these brussels.
How to buy and prepare brussel sprouts?
I like to use fresh brussel sprouts for roasting, not frozen. If I can find brussel sprouts on the vine, I buy those. But usually I can’t, so I just pick up the fresh brussels sprouts in my supermarket.
You’ll also want to make sure you thoroughly wash and dry your sprouts before air frying. Here’s a great guide on how to pick and prepare brussel sprouts.
How do you cook brussel sprouts in the Air Fryer?
When cooking brussel sprouts in the Air fryer, you want to cook it a lower temperature of 360 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes. I find that this is the best temperature to allow your brussel sprouts to get tender on the inside and develop a nice crisp on the outside. If you want your brussel sprouts even crispier, bump the heat up to 390 degrees Fahrenheit at the end for an additional 5 minutes.
This recipe for brussel sprouts can be modified if you choose to have brussel sprouts without the korean gochujang sauce. I would advice still using oil. I use a little bit of oil on all of my air fried vegetables to give them that nice crisp. I’ve got this info and more in my 10 Air Fryer tips every owner should know post.
I hope you enjoy this Air Brussel Sprouts recipe as much as we do. Until next time…
