The Best Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Updated: Feb 7, 2018


I made this with dinner last night and it was so good I was going to save it for the book, but fuck that; I need to be a good Socialist and redistribute the wealth of my Brussels Sprouts game. I could live on those little cabbages alone. If they’re on the menu, I’m ordering them. I know my sprouts and this Japanese inspired version is like Ringu, or the good version of Japanese horror films…before they get watered down for Americans. 

Make this and thank me. 

Ingredients:

1/12 LB. Brussels Sprouts, stems cut, outer layer removed and halved lengthwise 1 Japanese Sweet Potato, half moon chopped (Yams work too) ¼ C sesame oil ¼ C rice vinegar ¼ C Tamari (or soy sauce) 1 T Maple syrup 2 C red seedless grapes, halved ½ C roasted peanuts

Instructions:

1- Preheat oven to 400F

2- Place Brussels Sprouts in a large bowl

3- Whisk the tamari, sesame oil, maple syrup and rice vinegar together then pour over the sprouts. Make sure to coat the sprouts evenly.

4- Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Place the sprouts cut side down on the tray. Pour any remaining dressing over the sprouts. 

5- Roast for 35-ish minutes (the sesame roasting smell will make your house smell like you know what you’re doing in the kitchen). You want the sprouts to be charred and crispy.

6- Place the grapes and nuts in a bowl. Add the still hot Brussels Sprouts. Mix that up, and you’re done.
