These delicious Roasted Brussel Sprouts have a crispy outer layer and a tender, juicy center. Season them with a chimichurri sauce to enhance their flavor and you won’t be able to stop eating them!
Coming in hot with another vegetable recipe for you. I don’t know about you, but roasted vegetables top my list of all-time favorite foods. These Air Fryer Brussel Sprouts are my new favorite!
I roasted them in an air fryer but it can easily be done in the oven and even on a skillet. Roasting them brings out their natural sweetness and nuttiness, while adding a slight charred flavor.
I used my go-to Cilantro Chimichurri sauce for this one, a classic recipe that I posted years ago and was recently re-published. Since you can make it with mostly pantry ingredients, it’s a great recipe to have on hand when you’re craving something besides rice or potatoes.

How To Make Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Roasting brussel sprouts is easier than you think and they’re ready in no time.
To roast Brussel sprouts, preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Rinse and trim 1 lb (450 g) of Brussel sprouts and cut them in half.
This is a visual overview of the steps to make this recipe. See the detailed list of ingredients & instructions in the recipe card below.
- Toss the sprouts in a medium bowl with 2 tablespoons of oil, salt, and pepper to taste.
2. Spread the sprouts evenly on the tray or rack of the air fryer or a baking sheet if roasting them in the oven.
- Roast for 15-20 minutes, flipping them once, until they’re golden brown and crispy.
No air fryer? No problem! You can roast them on a skillet over medium-low heat, covered, stirring often. Once they start to get soft, turn up the heat a little bit to brown the outside.
Serve as an appetizer, side dish and top with Cilantro Chimichurri. They also go great with my Chipotle Crema or Cilantro Lime Ranch Mexican Crema.
Tips and Notes
- Buying guide: Look for sprouts that are firm, bright green, and have tight leaves. Avoid sprouts that are yellow, mushy, or have brown spots. Buy smaller sprouts which are sweeter and more tender.
- After cooking, let the Brussels sprouts cool to room temperature. Transfer to an airtight container, such as a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid or a resealable plastic bag.
- Store: Refrigerate for up to five days.
