Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sweet potatoes peeled and diced into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts stem removed and quartered
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Add diced potatoes and quartered brussels sprouts to large mixing bowl
  • Toss with avocado oil and seasonings
  • Add to air fryer basket and set to 380 degrees
  • Cook, tossing occasionally, until cooked to desired tenderness (about 10-15 minutes)
  • Veggies are done when they are lightly browned and can be pierced easily with a fork

Notes

  • This recipes uses a bit more oil than most air fryer recipes in order to get the veggies tender. ¬†Excess oil will drip into bottom of pan.
  • Toss with seasoning before adding to air fryer
  • Adjust chipotle chili powder to suit your preference for spice. ¬†These are slightly spicy as made
  • Any extra moisture will fall to the bottom of the air fryer basket, so be sure to check and toss often to ensure they don't burn.
  • While many recipes call for preheating the air fryer, I rarely do and didn't for this recipe.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an air tight container in fridge for up to 4 days. These are perfect for meal prep.
