Brussel Sprouts in the Air Fryer

I always look for ways to get vegetables into my family. That’s why I tried making these air fryer Brussel sprouts. Since we’re Italian we use garlic a lot, especially on vegetables. It adds a lot of flavors.

Using my air fryer I have many 5-star vegetable recipes like my delicious Asparagus, Zucchini Fries, and garlic and parmesan green bean fries.
