Spicy chili peanut roasted brussels sprouts are the perfect mix of sweet & spicy! They’re a delicious side dish to bring to your dinner table, and truly taste like they’re from a restaurant!
They get that perfect caramelization while roasting, and can really take your veggie game up a notch.
Last weekend, we ate at a restaurant that served the most delicious “kung pao” brussels sprouts. They were heavily fried, and topped with a delicious chili pepper peanut sauce. I knew right away that I had to recreate a lighter version!
I made the sauce from a mixture of coconut aminos, peanut butter, pure maple syrup, garlic and some spices. It’s such a delicious glaze for your veggies, but can also be used for other foods like chicken, fish, and tofu- or even as a dipping sauce.
I love serving brussels sprouts as a side dish because they’re really satisfying. They taste delicious simply roasted with salt, pepper and olive oil, but adding a glaze is always fun to switch things up!
You guys already know i’m obsessed with anything sweet and savory, so these roasted brussels sprouts are a true winner in my book.
Serve them with your favorite protein, appetizer or even as a weekday snack.
They’re simple, and SO flavorful.
These chili peanut roasted brussels sprouts are sure to elevate your weeknight veggie game. If you like them less spicy, you can always cut back on the chili flakes!
