Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite comfort foods. Laugh all you want, but when you try this recipe you’ll understand. Roasted Brussels sprouts paired with creamy tahini dressing is seriously out of this world! It’s one of my go to recipes when I’m feeling like a nourishing, savory treat, and it’s very simple to make.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts:
- 2 cups Brussels sprouts
- Olive oil – enough to lightly coat the sprouts
- Pinch of sea salt
- Pinch of black pepper
Preheat oven to 375. Wash and cut the ends off of the brussels sprouts, removing the outer layer of leaves. Roast for about 40 minutes or until sprouts are golden brown.
- ¼ cup tahini
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp wheat-free tamari
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 garlic clove
- Juice of 1 lemon
- About ¼ cup water (depending on how thick you want your dressing)
- 1 pinch cayenne or red pepper flakes (optional)
Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Add more water for a thinner dressing.
When Brussels sprouts are done cooking, drizzle them generously with tahini and enjoy!
