Spicy Brussels Srpouts April 1, 2014

Every since my husband and I have changed our opinions on Brussels Sprouts I keep looking for exciting ways to make them.  My mom recently passed along a recipe she found and with a little tweaking we really like it!  I have tried the glaze on other vegetables like asparagus but it does not taste as good as it does on the sprouts.  Enjoy!!!

1 # of Brussels Sprouts cut in half

3 cloves of garlic minced

Pam Olive Oil Spray

Sea Salt

Ground Pepper

2 tablespoons honey

1/2 – 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce

1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Rinse and pat dry Brussels sprouts.  Cut Brussels sprouts in half.

Spray a baking sheet with Pam Olive Oil.  In a bowl, place sprouts, garlic, a pinch of sea salt and pepper.  Spray sprouts liberally with more Pam Olive Oil and toss to coat (you may have to spray more than one time).

Arrange sprouts on baking sheet in a single layer.  Bake for about 7-9 minutes depending on the size of your sprouts.  Flip and bake for another 7-9 minutes.

Remove the sprouts from the oven.  Spray again with Pam Olive Oil

Whisk together in a bowl  the honey, lime juice and Sriracha sauce.  Add the sprouts to the glaze mixture and gently toss so you are coating them evenly.

Place back on baking sheet.  Place baking sheet under broiler for about 3 minutes (you don’t want to over cook or burn them).

Remove from oven and enjoy!!!
