I remember these little green things as horrible, despicable, and downright nasty. Who doesn’t? It turns out that Brussels sprouts as absolutely delicious when roasted. When made in the air fryer, they’re also quick, so there is absolutely no reason not to eat and enjoy them.
Cut into halves, removing any gross outer leaves:
1 lb. Brussels sprouts
Toss with all of the following:
2 t. oil
2 T. balsamic vinegar
4 cloves garlic
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
Set aside the dressing that doesn’t stick to the sprouts. Air fry the sprouts for 10 minutes on 400 degrees (no preheat needed). Drizzle the reserved dressing over the hot sprouts and enjoy.
If you like cabbage, you’ll love these! There is only a slight bitter aftertaste, and the outsides get nice and crispy. Delish. I can’t wait to eat them again!

The only thing stopping me from eating these more often is the cost. Why are they 3 dollars a pound? Is this a supply and demand thing? They were expensive before inflation. I used to get them from Bountiful Baskets, but they are no longer available in my area. I’m still upset about that, and it’s been years.
