Sesame Brussel Sprouts

Sweet sesame soy roasted brussel sprouts.

Quick and easy side of roasted tahini and sweet soy glazed brussel sprouts.

This recipe is probably one of the easiest I’ve posted. The hardest part would be trimming the root tip and cutting the sprouts in half. Not really hard, but it does take a few minutes.

Once cut, the sprouts get tossed with oil and positioned cut side down on a sheet pan. Again, this takes a little time. Then, they are popped into the oven until golden.

The sauce can be made while the brussels are roasting, with minutes to spare. Toss the sauce with the golden sprouts and roast for five more minutes. Pile them into a bowl, garnish with a little sesame seed, and they are ready to devour!
