Ingredient Notes and Health Benefits:
Brussels Sprouts: They are a cruciferous veggie and SO healthy. They contain kaempferol which is an antioxidant linked to preventing cancer. It also helps to decrease inflammation. Brussels sprouts are high in fiber, vitamins and minerals and are also one of the best plant sources of omega 3 fatty acids. ALL AROUND WIN!
Extra Virgin Olive Oil: High in healthy (monounsaturated) fats as well as antioxidants. You may not notice it once it’s mixed into this recipe, but it provides a lot of health benefits.
Hapa Hawaiian Salt: You can use any salt in this recipe. It helps to bring out the flavor of the sprouts.
Fresh Garlic: Has a positive impact on blood pressure, cholesterol and and helps to prevent heart disease.

How to Use the Air Fryer:
Each air fryer is different, so I recommend referring to the manual for your specific model. Mine does not require any preheating, and is very easy to use (they are all easy just vary slightly). I have this Philips Air Fryer and I absolutely love it. After placing the brussels in the bin, I slide the bin into the air fryer. Next, simply select the temperature and time to cook and that’s it! It seriously could not be easier. Make sure you check out this Air Fryer French Fry with Chili Lime Mayo recipe, too.
