These clean eating air fryer roasted brussels sprouts were a total experiment that actually worked out quite well.
In my experience, I have found that there are two types of people in this world. People who love brussels sprouts, and people who hate them. I have never met a single person who is somewhere in the middle.
More often then not, the people that don’t like them dislike them because they have never had them cooked properly. Now I’m not saying there aren’t exceptions to that rule, but in most cases, that seems to be the issue.
Enter the air fryer….
I’ve been having a blast experimenting with this new air fryer of mine. You can read my air fryer review here where I talk about reasons to get one as well as reasons to NOT get one. But if an air fryer is a good fit for you, then you simply must try brussels sprouts at least one time. The air fryer cooks these little, mini cabbages to perfection, each and every time. They end up roasted to delicious crispiness on the outside, and are cooked al dente on the inside. They maintain their beautiful color as well as the majority of their nutrients. It’s a delicious win-win and you won’t have to deal with that awful smell you get when you steam them. Ick.
