Hello lovely people! Im back again with yet another air fryer recipe that you will surely love! Air Fryer Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts!! These brussels sprouts are cooked in the air fryer until crispy and then tossed with a delicious sauce made with honey & sriracha. I use the air fryer a ton and love being able to make veggies in under 10 minutes instead of reaching in the pantry for junk! If you love crispy brussels sprouts, you’ll love this recipe!
What is “Kung- Pao”?
Kung Pao dishes are Chinese in origin and robust in flavors of red chili, and peanuts! I used to be obsessed with kung pao chicken and Kung Pao noodles growing up so I thought i’d give it a shot with this recipe! I opted out of using any whole red chili in this recipe and instead relied on the heat of sriracha sauce! If you like Indo- Chinese recipes or East Asian cooking, you will love these flavors!
How Do You Make Brussels Sprouts in the Air Fryer?
I like to buy bagged brussels sprouts in the ready to steam bags because they are usually already trimmed. I don’t steam them in the bag- it just cuts down on the process! My recipe calls for chopped up, seasoned brussels sprouts in the air fryer for about 10 minutes that then get tossed in a ridiculously delicious and spicy sauce! These brussels sprouts are crispy, crunchy and can be made so many different ways! The peanuts add an additional level of crunch, too!
Why Use an Air Fryer?
I find the “set it and forget it” method with the air fryer to be very convenient but moreover, you’re able to achieve a wonderful “crisp” that is sometimes just not possible in the oven.
What other recipes can I try in the air fryer?
Which Air Fryer Is the Best?
I get this question often and there are so many great models on the market. I was gifted my Philips Air Fryer a few years back , long before air fryers were super popular! Now there are a ton of different ones on the market, many of them offering dual functions like this Cuisinart Toaster Oven & Air Fryer Combo. If you have a personal favorite of your own, please feel free to leave it in the comments section of this blog?
