Updated: Sep 24
A simple recipe for delicious sweet and spicy Roasted Brussels Sprouts.
I can't honestly say I'm a massive fan of Brussels Sprouts, but I do try and give them a chance every once in a while. Below, you can find the recipe I use to transform them into a delicious side dish even for those who don't usually like them:
Gochugaru Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe
You will need:
450 g trimmed Brussels sprouts, parboiled and halved
1 tsp gochugaru (Korean chilli pepper flakes)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp rosemary and onion seasoning mix
5 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp soy sauce
5 cloves of garlic
2 heaped tablespoons of honey (set or runny)
First, trim the Brussels sprouts - trim the stems and remove any of the damaged outer layers then slice each sprout in half
Preheat the oven to 200C/gas6
Put the Brussels sprouts in a saucepan containing boiling water and a pinch of salt and boil them for about 2 minutes
Drain them, put them in a mixing bowl, add all other ingredients and mix well
Spread the seasoned Brussel Sprouts on a large roasting tray on a single layer
Roast for 20-25 minutes (standard oven) or 15-20 for fan-assisted ovens
Serve them as you desire and enjoy!
Midway through, shake the pan gently, or stir the sprouts slightly using a wooden spoon.
You can pair the Gochugaru Roasted Brussels Sprouts with a traditional Christmas or Sunday Roast, baked salmon, tofu or sweet potatoes, steak, roast chicken or pan-fried fish.
Ideally, please use Gochugaru, but, if it's not available, you can replace it with chilli flakes.
You can also substitute the honey with agave nectar or even maple syrup.
Instead of vegetable oil, you can use whichever type of oil you desire: sunflower oil, rapeseed oil, or, for an extra bit of kick, chilli-infused olive oil.
If rosemary and onion seasoning isn't available, dried or fresh rosemary will do the job
This delicious side dish will keep for about 3-4 days in the refrigerator.
