Thai Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Has anyone else had brussels sprouts on their mind this winter?

 

These little guys have made their way into my cooking routine pretty often in the past few months. They are really easy to prepare if you like the simple, roasted vegetable for a quick dinner. However, if you want to get creative, they can really take on many different types of cuisine!

Enjoy my latest creation… Thai Roasted Brussels Sprouts!


Ingredients

1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup Thai Kitchen sweet red chili sauce

1/4 cup soy sauce

Sriracha sauce, to taste {if you like spicy!}

1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped

1 scallion, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Toss brussels sprouts with olive oil and place in hot cast iron pan, cut side down. Cook on medium high heat until browned on the bottoms, ~ 5 minutes. Transfer to oven and cook 10 minutes or until just tender.
  3. To get deep brown color, broil for 2 more minutes.
  4. While the sprouts are cooking, mix together the sweet chili sauce, soy sauce & sriracha in a small bowl.
  5. After the sprouts are done broiling, toss them in the sauce.
  6. Sprinkle fresh herbs on top of roasted brussels sprouts and toss. Serve!
