  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts, cut in half or quarters
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice, divided
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 4 slices bacon, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup sliced red onion
  • 1/2 large avocado, diced
  • fresh basil
  • salt + pepper to taste


  1. In a small bowl whisk together oil, balsamic, 2 tbsp lemon juice, garlic powder and salt. Use 3 tbsp of the mixture to coat the brussels and toss until evenly combined.

  2. Place the brussels in the basket of the air fryer. Set the temperature to 370 and the timer to 20 minutes.

  3. After 10 minutes, gently toss the brussels sprouts. Now top with onion and bacon. Cook for another 10 minutes (may need to check after 8 minutes), and remove to a bowl.

  4. Add avocado and fresh basil to the brussels sprouts, then toss with the remaining balsamic mixture. Sprinkle additional tbsp of lemon juice on top. Serve hot!
