Hand up in the air if you feel like Brussels sprouts are having a moment? Or, should be having a moment? One of the biggest culinary regrets of my childhood was not giving them a proper chance to serve as the flavorful side dish I've come to love as an adult. Of course, we love roasting them in the oven with a little olive oil, salt, and vinegar, but this version is incredibly tasty and healthy. Picture a smoky flavor, hints of crispy edges that add a pop of flavor, and a kick of heat from spices you most likely already have on hand!
What makes these different? Instead of a soy sauce base for the flavor, I chose liquid aminos to:
- Infuse these Brussels sprouts with amino acids
- Offer a gluten-free option for those on a strict diet
- Create a mild soy sauce flavor
These smoky sprouts are perfect for a side dish, but you can certainly make them a fun appetizer, too! If you have a creamy dip, try pairing with these sprouts for something tasty and guilt-free.
