Smashed brussels sprouts in air fryer – Gordon Ramsay’s version

Smashed brussels sprouts in air fryer

These smashed sprouts they are my creative and tasty reinterpretation of traditional Brussels sprouts, designed for those looking for a new and quick way to enjoy this winter vegetable. A crunchy and spicy finger food to serve as an aperitif or as a delicious side dish.

A simple recipe, which combines the natural sweetness of sprouts with an irresistible crunchiness obtained thanks to cooking in an air fryer.

Brussels sprouts, native to Northern Europe, are a winter vegetable rich in vitamins C and K, fiber and antioxidants, celebrated for their beneficial properties in strengthening the immune system and promoting digestive health.

Just like smashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts should be boiled or steamed and then “mashed”. To do this I recommend using a meat tenderizer or the bottom of a glass. A brush of extra virgin olive oil will help the breading stick.

In fact, I wanted to flavor my smashed sprouts with a mix of spices* such as paprika, cumin and coriander, to give even more warmth and depth to their slightly sulphurous flavour. The finishing touch? The combination with Tahini, the sesame cream widely used in Middle Eastern cuisine which goes perfectly with the intense flavor of the brassicas.
