Perfect for a weeknight dinner or a small holiday celebration, this vegetable duo offers the best tastes of fall. Using an air fryer to cook the sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts renders both perfectly done at the same time: The potatoes are creamy with a little bit of exterior crust, and the sprouts are tender with browned, crispy edges. To ensure even cooking, make sure to pause the cooking about halfway through and shake the basket to toss the food around.
