I’m not gonna lie. I’ve always been afraid of brussels sprouts. I actually tried to make them once by sauteeing them in a pan with some bacon and onion and garlic, but it just didn’t work out. They were still super bitter and gross. After researching a bit more I discovered that roasting is the best method for the sprouts. I decided it needed a little something though, and what better something than sweet and heat? so I give you, my sweet heat roasted brusels sprouts.
1 lb brussels sprouts, ends cut off and halved
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
3 tbsp honey
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Make sure the sprouts are all halved with the hard ends chopped off, and put in a bowl.
Whisk the remaining ingredients together. Make sure you melt the coconut oil!
Pour all over the sprouts and mix well, then spread across a baking tray (I lined mine with foil).
Roast at 350 degrees for thirty minutes. They’ll pop out like this.
It’s a redundant pic, but here they are starring with the pot roast I made..
