In my goal to be a good, ok, better vegan, I am trying vegetables and foods I never thought I would eat. On the list of intimidating foods I don’t typically eat are brussel sprouts.
I made them a couple weeks ago in the oven. They were ok. Nothing to write home (or on a blog) about.
When I was at church this past week, someone mentioned making them in the air fryer. Now why didn’t I think of that? I use the air fryer for almost everything!
As it would happen, I purchased another bag of brussel sprouts a few days ago. Their health benefits outweigh my desire to forego eating them. I decided to give it a go in my air fryer.
I quartered the large pieces and halved the tiny ones. I used a tiny bit of olive oil (maybe two teaspoons – max). A sprinkle of salt, pepper and a dash of paprika. I put them in a single layer in the air fryer. Set the temperature to 400 degrees fahrenheit and cooked them for 8-10 minutes.
They turned out perfectly! Nice and crispy. I did drizzle about a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar on them after they were done cooking.
I highly recommend using the air fryer for these little cabbage-like veggies. You can’t go wrong if you do.
