Expert Tips

  • If you’re dealing with oversized sprouts, cut them in quarters, and check for doneness at the minimum cooking time.
  • Air fryer temperature control settings vary according to brand and model. If your air fryer does not have the exact temperature setting called for in the recipe, consult your manual for suggested temperature settings.
  • Our recipes do not call for preheating your air fryer. Just set the temperature, and start. Never preheat with parchment paper alone.
