Sticky & Sweet Brussels Sprouts

Brussel sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. I pretty much want to cook them with every meal so this is a fun & flavorful way to change them up. I cooked these for one of my girlfriends the other night and she couldn’t get enough. This is definitely a side dish that will tempt you to go back for seconds, maybe even thirds!

Meal Idea: For a meatless meal, add brussel sprouts on a bed of brown rice or quinoa. Then, drizzle some of the extra sauce from your pan on top. yum.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb fresh brussel sprouts, ends trimmed and sliced in half
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons organic tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  • 1/4 Cup honey
  • red pepper flakes, to taste
  • toasted sesame seeds, to taste
  • 1/8 cup low sodium free range chicken broth

DIRECTIONS: 

1) In a large saute pan, over medium to medium/high heat, add the sesame and olive oil with grated ginger and a pinch (or two, if you like spicy) of red pepper flakes. Once the oils are heated and ginger starts to bubble add brussel sprouts.  IMG_3521

2.) Add soy sauce to brussel sprouts and shake pan so everything is coated evenly. Cook for about 10 minutes.  IMG_3529

3.) Once brussel sprouts have turned golden brown you can add the broth, you only need a splash. I also added more red pepper flakes. Only do this if you like a little kick.IMG_3532

4.) Cook another 2-3 minutes, shaking pan occasionally.

5.) Add honey and a pinch of sesame seeds. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.IMG_3535

Feel free to add more soy, honey, or red pepper flakes when serving. Garnish with a few extra sesame seeds! ENJOY!   IMG_3545
