Brussels Sprouts is one of those vegetables people either love or hate! I know for me when they are boiled, the smell is very strong, and that can put people off from eating them. However, these little vegetables have heaps of vitamins and are very versatile.
This recipe we're sharing today was kindly shared by our Lovefoodies supporter, Cathy Kopp. Cathy is always coming up with new and inventive ways to use ingredients, and Cathy's recipes are always fuss-free, and have heaps of flavor.
This recipe uses little to minimal oil, so that keeps it healthy, and can be ready to serve in 15 minutes.
For those of you familiar with using an air fryer, you'll already know it's much easier to achieve a crispy outer layer, whilst still keeping the inside of your food juicy and flavorful. These sprouts are no different. The outer leaves take on a lovely crispy layer and then the inside is tender and soft.
The photo you see in this recipe is using raw, fresh brussels sprouts. You can use frozen sprouts, however, you will need to be aware you won't get the outer leaves as crispy due to the excess water content.
To try and get them as crispy as possible, just space them apart in the basket and perhaps turn them a few times to help the air circulate as much as possible.
If you don't have an air fryer, of course, you can make these in the oven, by roasting them. You won't get the crispiness that you get with an air fryer because the air is not as dry in the oven, but it's still going to be better than boiling your sprouts!
This is a lovely side dish to serve at any time of the year, and particularly over the holidays, such as Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas time. Nowadays, sprouts are available all year round, so they aren't really as seasonal as they used to be.
You'll notice in the list of ingredients we have garlic powder, salt, and pepper. That's really all the flavoring you need. These are very tasty!
However, if you wanted to jazz it up a bit more, perhaps add a little heat, feel free to experiment, add some smoked paprika, or chili, maybe some chopped tarragon or oregano. The sky's the limit really! Even a dash of balsamic vinegar mixed in with olive oil is a delicious combination.
