Brussels Sprouts?!

I think that we are trained as humans to be disgusted by the thought of brussels sprouts. But fear not fellow brave green eaters! I share with you…..

Brussels Sprout Poppers!

2 lbs brussels sprouts

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp kosher salt

red pepper flakes

1 tbsp lemon juice

Optional dipping sauce: 

3 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce)

2 tbsp raw miso (refrigerated paste)

2 tbsp lime juie

1 tbsp agave nectar or sugar

1 bunch scallions

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse sprouts and cut off root. Slice the sprouts in half. Put halved sprouts into a ziplock bag with olive oil, salt, pepper flakes, and lemon juice. GENTLY shake the bag to coat the sprouts.  Be careful of their leaves–they fall off easily.  Pour sprouts onto a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, or until lightly browned and soft. If using the sauce, mix together all ingredients in a small bowl. Remove sprouts  from oven and serve with dipping sauce. Yum!
