Gochugaru Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

You will need:

ingredients for Gochugaru Roasted Brussels Sprouts
  • 450 g trimmed Brussels sprouts, parboiled and halved

  • 1 tsp gochugaru (Korean chilli pepper flakes)

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper

  • 5 tsp vegetable oil

  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce

  • 5 cloves of garlic

  • 2 heaped tablespoons of honey (set or runny)

How to:

  2. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas6

  3. Put the Brussels sprouts in a saucepan containing boiling water and a pinch of salt and boil them for about 2 minutes

  4. Drain them, put them in a mixing bowl, add all other ingredients and mix well

  5. Spread the seasoned Brussel Sprouts on a large roasting tray on a single layer

  6. Roast for 20-25 minutes (standard oven) or 15-20 for fan-assisted ovens

  7. 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.
