Air Fryer Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts

Yield 2-4 Servings


 Brussels Sprouts:

Combine the following in a large bowl:

4 cups brussels sprouts, outer layer peeled and quartered

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil like Lucini Italia Premium Select

1 tsp garlic powder

pinch of salt and pepper

1/4 cup roasted salted peanuts

Kung Pao Sauce:

In a small bowl combine the following:

3 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp Sriracha

1/2 tsp ginger, grated

1/2 tsp garlic, grated

1/2 tsp rice wine vinegar

1/2 tsp crushed red chili flakes


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees.
  2. Mix everything listed under brussels sprouts together except for the peanuts and put in the air fryer for 8 minutes, stopping when there are two minutes left- add in the peanuts and continue to cook for the remaining two minutes. If you like your brussels sprouts crispier, cook for an additional few minutes being careful to not burn them.
  3. Once the brussels sprouts are done cooking, remove from the air fryer into the same bowl you mixed them in-toss them with the Kung Pao sauce and enjoy immediately!
