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!
