Glorious Brussels Sprouts Recipes
Lentils and Brussels Sprouts Skillet
This is what I call an awesome meal.
It’s hearty, super healthy and you’re just going to want to keep eating! Included here is some onion and garlic as well.
The amounts listed in the ingredients makes four servings, which’ll do me just fine thank you very much!
Brussels Sprout Sauerkraut
Well, sauerkraut is made from cabbage and Brussels sprouts are like a cousin, so why not?
The best part about this recipe is that you’re looking at just 20 minutes prep time. After that it’s just a case of waiting for nature to take its course.
Follow the instructions carefully and you’ll have yourself a delicious salad or sandwich filling! Once ready to eat, it will store in the refrigerator for around two months or perhaps even more.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Sweet Curried Fig Sauce
If you want a special side-dish that will surprise all your guests, reach for this recipe!
The sprouts are roasted giving them a wonderful texture and flavor. They would be good enough just like this.
Then you get to make an incredible sauce which is both sweet and savoury.
It’s the perfect accompaniment. Keep the recipe handy as people will be asking you for it!
Citrus Brussels Sprouts Slaw with Rice Paper “Bacon” Bits and Almond “Parm”
Some people love slaw but they don’t care too much for the mayo. This recipe is the best alternative I’ve ever seen.
You have everything here from an incredible dressing made with Dijon mustard, lemon juice and more.
In addition, there is a plant-based Parmesan ‘cheese’ and if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also learn how to make ‘bacon bits’ with rice paper!
Put them all together and you have something very special.
Sweet and Spicy Sriracha Brussels Sprouts
This recipe is great for a couple of reasons, it’s great for anyone that didn’t really care for Brussels sprouts as it adds so much more flavor.
Secondly, it retains the essence of the vegetable while adding a little twist.
Altogether you’re looking at about 20 minutes which is not bad at all. Wait until you taste it!
Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts
A great way to lighten up Brussels sprouts!
Roast our little green friends with sweet potatoes in this easy recipe. As there are two distinctive flavors, it’s great for people who don’t care for Brussels sprouts very much.
On a side note, I think this is delicious as a meal served with either rice or quinoa!
Brussels Sprouts with Cashew Cream Sauce
Wow, who would’ve thought the side dish could be so tasty!
Soak the cashews the night before to make your beautiful cream sauce. The Brussels sprouts have a great texture, some will be a little crispy around the edges and yet retain their softness in the middle.
As well as being plant-based, this is also gluten-free!
Pan Seared Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Almonds and Balsamic
Have you ever tried balsamic vinegar? If you have, you know this recipe is going to be good. If you haven’t, now is the time!
Just four ingredients and a little seasoning is all you need to make this incredible dish.
The sprouts are cooked on the stovetop, preferably using an iron pan.
Follow the simple instructions and within 20 minutes this beauty will be ready!
Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash
Here, you bake butternut squash in this super easy recipe.
Every taste gives you a slight sweetness along with a hint of cinnamon. Serve with chopped pecans for that extra crunch.
Rosemary Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Parsnips, and Carrots
If you’re a lover of rosemary, this is definitely for you!
Brussels sprouts are roasted with this lovely herb along with parsnips and carrots.
You could also add in any other vegetables that are leftovers!
Very easy recipe that’s versatile and useful for any time of year.
Creamy Mustard Brussels Sprouts Salad
This is an incredible recipe! If you don’t get a reaction when you say they’ll be Brussels sprouts on the table, you will when they see and taste this!
The sprouts are sautéed and then mixed with a creamy cashew mustard sauce. Incredibly delicious! I think this is too good to be a side dish!
Sunchoke, Brussels Sprouts and Pear Salad with Crispy Kasha
What a delicious and unexpected dish. I say that because the last thing I would have imagined with Brussels would have been pear.
The flavors go beautifully together and when you add all the other ingredients you have a wide variety of flavors and textures. Perfect as a side dish or certainly a main meal!
Roasted Brussels Sprouts Farro Salad
A salad with a difference. We’re not just talking Brussels sprouts here!
You’ve got Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, pecans and a handful of other ingredients that make this delicious dish.
You just need 10 minutes for prep and the rest is cooking. Enjoy!
Brussels Sprouts Salad
When I first saw the title of this recipe, I thought it would be finely chopped Brussels sprouts with some kind of dressing. I was so wrong!
The walnuts, the wholegrain mustard, the apples and all the other flavors combine to make this something very special indeed.
It would make the perfect lunch or a great side as part of an evening meal.
Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Walnuts
Looking for something familiar yet has a slight twist for the Thanksgiving table?
Not just roasted Brussels sprouts, here we are talking balsamic vinegar and walnuts too!
Different flavors, different textures and yet together they work as one. Perfect!
Pomegranate Glazed Brussels Sprouts
Certainly perfect for Thanksgiving, although I have a feeling this will be made more than once!
There are only a handful of ingredients and I recommend the ‘optional’ ones are compulsory.
The glazing works beautifully along with all the other flavors. Delicious!
Sautéed Dijon Brussels Sprouts
I absolutely love this recipe. One of the reasons is because the Brussels sprouts are sliced, I think they have a wonderful texture when they are like this. The other reason is just how simple the dish comes together.
Dry white wine, garlic, Dijon mustard and just a couple of other ingredients is all you need.
You’re looking at about 10 minutes prepping which essentially is slicing Brussels sprouts. Then just cook for five minutes, season and eat!
Asian Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Crispy Fried Shiitake Mushrooms
Goodness, this is one of the most creative recipes I have seen with Brussels sprouts!
If you’ve never had shiitake mushrooms, make them with this!
Even if you don’t normally care for mushrooms, I think you’re like how they’re prepared.
This would be perfect alongside a Chinese meal. Don’t get take-out, make this!
Garam Masala Brussels Sprouts
Do you like Indian food? If so, give your Brussels sprouts the same influence!
I love how the herbs, flavors and spices are prepared in this dish. Garlic and cumin powder are amongst the handful of ingredients that make this very special side-dish!
Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta with Crispy Brussels Sprouts
A recipe where Brussels sprouts are not the main event, but the perfect accompaniment!
Time to get your spiralizer out and make some butternut squash noodles!
The sauce is something you simply must try because words will not do it justice.
Put everything together and you have a nourishing meal that is both full of flavor and extremely satisfying.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Butternut Squash
This is both a main dish and a side-dish, you choose!
Roasted Brussels sprouts alone are just awesome. Here we add butternut squash, cranberries and pecans.
If that wasn’t enough, the avocado and roasted garlic dressing will be something you’ll be pouring on just about anything!
Sesame Brussels Sprouts Tofu Bowl
Takeout is so overrated, seriously! Okay, I know you can get some great tasting food, but you never really know the ingredients. If that wasn’t enough, it can be really expensive.
This is far too good to be a side-dish. The tofu is prepared to perfection and along with the Brussels sprouts you have mushrooms, scallions and more. A simple dish although it tastes exactly the opposite!
If you know anyone that doesn’t care for Brussels sprouts too much, this is the dish that’s going to convert them!
Here, our little green favorites are simmered in a vegan cream sauce made from cashews. Some really great flavors such as garlic powder and more.
Unbelievably you’re looking at just a 5 minute prep time and the same for cooking! Make a lot, you’ll need it!
Crispy Brussels Sprouts Chips
Brussels sprouts chips? You need to trust me on this one!
The recipe page for this is very well laid out. You have photos along the way that show you which parts of the Brussels sprouts you need, what you can throw-away and also what you keep for later!
And just two other ingredients and bake. These chips have been tested and approved by children!
Maple Sesame Ginger Roasted Brussels Sprouts
This recipe is perfect if you want to retain the essence of Brussels sprouts as a side dish.
A wonderful accompaniment to the Thanksgiving or Christmas table, here we have roasted sprouts along with the very distinctive flavors of ginger and sesame.
Add a touch of maple and you’re good to go!
Baby Purple Brussels Sprouts
If you’ve never cared for Brussels sprouts too much, now is the time to try the purple variety.
Purple sprouts are little sweeter and have less of that familiar flavor that some people like (and some people don’t!).
This dish is a simple and perfect introduction on how to have the purple variety. Super healthy and delicious!
Spaghetti with Brussels Sprouts
Would either of my Italian grandmothers approved of this recipe? We’ll never know for sure, but I suspect they would have said, ‘why not’?
A great spaghetti recipe in its own right. If you’re anything like me, you always have a packet in the cupboard for those rainy days when you just don’t know what to eat.
Add Brussels sprouts and the dish takes on a new dimension, it somehow lightens everything up and you feel less lethargic.
I absolutely loved it!
Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts
This is the sort of recipe that keeps the familiarity and yet adds a sophisticated twist.
The sprouts are roasted giving them a slightly crispy texture.
The balsamic glaze makes them extra special. They will go perfect with just about any meal you create.
Firecracker Brussels Sprouts
Time to give those sprouts a rocket!
Such an easy recipe that has dramatic effects on this favorite holiday vegetable. Now, don’t think this is just for those that like hot sauce.
The heat is literally up to you as it’s just one part of the dish, you get to judge how spicy you want it.
Brussel Sprouts Soup for a Gentle Ayurvedic Detox
Brussels sprouts would have been the last thing on my mind in terms of creating a soup such as this. It just shows how versatile they can be.
This recipe features lots of wholesome ingredients such as onion, carrot, ginger, and more!
The amounts are perfectly balanced, you can tell that Ana put a lot of thought into this dish.
Just five minutes prep time and about 30 minutes to cook. Perfect!
Kale Pesto Cavatelli with Crispy Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Time to get out the Italian flag! In fact, the dish has all the colors, green, white and red.
Obviously, you can use your favorite pasta with this recipe so don’t worry if you can’t source the cavatelli listed in the ingredients.
You can save yourself a little time by using your favorite vegan store-bought pesto, but really, it’s so simple to make I recommend you do.
Just follow the instructions and you’ll be in for a treat. Keep this recipe, you can never have enough recipes for pasta!
As somebody once said, “They’re Brussels sprouts, Jim, just not as we know them.”
I know, I know. Nobody ever said that, but you know what I mean.
