Here’s what you’ll need for the perfect Keto accompaniment:

Do You Need To Soak Brussel Sprouts Before Cooking?

Do you HAVE to? Absolutely not. They’re just as tasty without trimming or soaking. However, if you want them to cook quickly, trimming the stems and letting them soak for 20-30 minutes before you roast them in your air fryer is great to speed up the process.

If you want the cooking times I’ve listed below to work, I would suggest soaking them before cooking.
