These Sweet and Spicy Brussels Sprouts are totally addicting and easy to make at home!Have you noticed Brussels sprouts are on menus everywhere these days? I love that this nutritional powerhouse has become a menu darling and more mainstream.
I’ve been a big fan of Brussels sprouts for years. Don’t miss of my favorites—> Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries, Pecans, and Blue Cheese, Warm Brussels Sprouts Salad, Brussels sprouts Chips, Grilled Brussels sprouts, and Roasted Brussels sprouts with Apples.
I recently went to Nashville with some of my ZYIA Active team for a team retreat and at one of our lunches the table split a Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower appetizer. I loved the sweet and spicy flavor and knew I had to recreate it at home. What’s one more recipe featuring Brussels sprouts, am I right?
The Brussels sprouts and cauliflower are pan fried in avocado oil to get them nice and crispy and then finished in a quick and simple sauce. The sweet comes from maple syrup and the spicy from sriracha sauce and it’s the perfect combination.
This can work as an appetizer or small plate like we had it in Nashville (The restaurant was at the Thompson Hotel, by the way) or as side dish at dinner. Or you might just eat an entire bowl at lunch time like I may have done when I was testing this recipe. No judgement here.Print
