Recipe: Crispy Fried Brussels Sprouts with Honey and Sriracha

Cooking / Eating In

Brussels_Sprouts-1

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I prepare Brussels sprouts on a fairly regular basis.  I can’t believe that just a mere 2 years ago I was supremely skeptical of these mini cabbage-like veggies, but now they are one of my faves!  They are a fall/winter staple at my local farmer’s market, and I always enjoy digging through the crates to find the most pristine ones.

I usually roast them in the oven with some olive oil, salt and pepper.  Sometimes I add a honey and soy sauce glaze.  But recently, I found this recipe from Food52 for fried sprouts with honey and sriracha – yum!  The sweetness of the honey and the spicy kick of the sriracha is simply amazing.  I modify the recipe a bit – for example, I don’t deep fry the sprouts so as to make this dish a little healthier.  And let’s face it, deep frying is messy.  The recipe calls for a pound of sprouts, and I really have no idea how many I use.  I don’t exactly measure out the honey and sriracha.  I also leave out the lime juice because I didn’t have any. Oops. ANYHOO, these were deeeelicious!  Try them for yourself and let me know what you think!
