Units Scale
  • 1 lb. small-to-medium Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
  • 2 tsp. cooking oil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper


  1. Preheat air fryer to 400°F.
  2. Put the Brussels sprouts and any nice leaves that have fallen off into a medium bowl with the oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.
  3. Transfer to the air fryer basket. Toss to spread into a single layer.
  4. Put basket into fryer.
  5. Cook for 7 minutes. Have a look. If they’re nice and brown, test one with a fork to make sure it’s soft enough. If you’d like them softer or browner, cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  6. Transfer to a serving plate.
