Discover a whole new level of deliciousness when it comes to roasting Brussels sprouts in the air fryer! In just 15 minutes, you can whip up a batch of crispy Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts with Gochujang that will leave your tastebuds tingling.

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 3-4 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts (trimmed and halved)
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Gochujang paste
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey



  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400F degrees.
  2. Place the halved Brussels sprouts into a large mixing bowl. Toss the sprouts with the oil, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  3. Add the Brussels sprouts to the basket of an air fryer in a single layer. Place in the preheated air fryer and cook for 7 minutes (tossing halfway through).
  4. While the Brussels sprouts are cooking, whisk together the Gochujang paste, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and honey in a small bowl until well-combined. (Set aside about 1/4 of the sauce for later.)
  5. Remove the Brussels sprouts from the air fryer and toss them into the bowl with the Gochujang sauce, coating thoroughly.
  6. Transfer the Brussels sprouts back into the air fryer basket and cook another 7 to 8 minutes, until they're caramelized and browned on the outside, and tender on the inside. (Cook another 2 minutes if necessary.)
  7. Transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle with the reserved Gochujang sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds and cilantro. Serve while warm.


  • Every air fryer is different, so pay attention to your cooking time. You'll know the Brussels sprouts are done when they are browned and crispy (but not burnt!). Remember, specific air fryer models may have different guidelines, so always consult your appliance's user manual for precise instructions and recommendations.
  • Want it spicier? Add another tablespoon of Gochujang paste, or to your taste preference.
  • Shaking the air fryer basket periodically ensures that the Brussels sprouts will brown evenly for a uniform texture and crispiness on all sides. Keep an eye out while it's cooking!
