Best Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe!

So I didn’t always love brussels sprouts.  In fact, as a kid, I hated them.  My mom would boil them until they were squishy and she seasoned them with butter, which didn’t exactly mask the awful smell of them boiling.  As I got older, and more adventurous with my food, I began trying several different recipes.  I found that roasting in the oven or grill was the best way to enjoy them.  Until yesterday, I always coated them in olive oil, salt and pepper, and threw them in the oven for 30 minutes.  While still delish, this new recipe is to die for.  I found the recipe on Pinterest and tweaked it a bit, see below for details:

Prep Time:  5 minutes

Cook Time:  30-40 minutes

Total Time:  35-45 minutes

Yield:  5 servings of melt in your mouth brussels sprouts

Ingredients:

2 lb. Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved

3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

3 tbsp. sweet red chili sauce

1.5 tbsp. chili garlic sauce

3 cloves of garlic, minced

Juice of 1 lime

Salt

Pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425º
  2. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, sweet chili sauce, chili garlic sauce, garlic, and lime juice.
  3. Add brussels sprouts and mix until sprouts are fully covered in sauce.
  4. Roast until slighlty charred and tender. (Sprouts were good at 30 minutes, but I like them more charred so I left them in for 40 minutes)
  5. Serve 🙂

That’s it!  So easy and delicious!  If you have any picky eaters in your house (self included), try this recipe.  They will be sure to love brussels sprouts after just one bite.
