Besides the ever popular kale, brussels sprouts seem to be popping up on restaurant menus everywhere. I’ve had them shredded raw in a salad, shaved on top of pizza, and stir-fried with soy sauce and chili oil. But, whenever I see roasted sprouts on a menu…my heart leaps with joy!
Roasted until browned and tender, the crispy leaves and soft interior are perfect for popping in your mouth as a snack or appetizer.
My absolute favourite brussels sprouts experience occured at a neighbourhood restaurant from my Brooklyn-ite days. These brussels were like none other…flash fried and tossed with some sort of sriracha based sauce, they were a crave-worthy dish that I went back for again, and again, and again (I think you get the picture). So obviously, I had to fill that void in my life and set out to re-create my perfect roasted brussels sprouts dish.
The perfect substitute for popcorn at your next movie, these babies are addictive!
