Spice Options and Variations

This recipe has very simple and basic spices that is found in most home kitchens. That being said, there are so many ways you can customize these vegan air fried brussels sprouts!
Instead of plain sea salt try out a flavored salt like black truffle salt, Applewood smoked salt, kimchi salt- there’s a ton of options out there!

Consider adding a tsp of nutritional yeast flakes for a more savory flavor.
I personally love the spice mix that is in these Air Fried Shredded Mushrooms for Air Fried Brussels Sprouts too!

If you want your Brussels Sprouts to be cheesy, try adding 2 tsp nutritional yeast flakes, 1/2 tsp mustard, and some plant based grated parmesan (about 2 tbs worth). I personally like the violife brand of vegan parmesan the best, but use whatever brand or homemade recipe you prefer. Consider adding a squeeze of lemon juice to add a bit of acidity to really make those cheesy flavors pop!

For a Tex-Mex variation try adding 1 tsp of chipotle powder, 1 tsp cumin, and 1 tsp paprika.

Try an Indian variation by adding 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp cumin, and 1 tsp cinnamon.

To do an easy Chinese variation try adding 2 tsp of 5 Spice Powder and skip the black pepper.
