Crispy Air Fried Veggies

Air Frying vegetables is my new favorite way to get a delicious, crispy skin that everyone goes crazy for. While you can get similar results in the oven, it typically takes double the time. The air fryer speeds the process up and gives you an amazing finished product, especially for these Brussels Sprouts! I love the extra dark loose leaves and edges and think you will too. Broccoli, Cauliflower, Potatoes and potatoes all are delicious roasted and toasted in the air fryer! Be sure to check out my archive of Vegetable Side Dishes here.

A Note About Air Fryers

Here’s the scoop on everyone’s favorite appliance the air fryer. In my opinion, NO they are not all considered equal. I’ve tried three separate machines from the cheapest possible air fryer on Amazon to my favorite, pricier Cuisinart Air Fryer (which is basically a toaster oven with air frying capabilities.) I LOVE IT and think it is worth every penny. Here’s why: It works extremely well, it is really even in its air frying capabilities and it’s large enough to make enough food for my family of six. If you are on the fence, I would highly recommend this one.

Prepping Brussels Sprouts

Whether you are using pre-washed and trimmed Brussels Sprouts or buying them in bulk, I like to wash them myself and remove the outer leaves and any parts that look brown. Then I will trim the stalk at the bottom and slice in half. Toss in a little oil, add some salt & pepper and you are good to go.
