How to Make Sesame Ginger Brussels Sprouts

Step 1

The first step is washing, trimming, and chopping your Brussels Sprouts. Always trim off the bottom of the sprout and peel off any leaves that may be too dirty to be cleaned. You can cut your Brussels sprouts into halves or quarters, depending on small or large they are. You just want to make sure they are all the same size, so they cook evenly.

Step 2

Next, add Brussels sprouts, minced garlic, ginger, extra virgin olive oil, and coconut aminos to a large skillet.

Step 3

Put over medium/high heat and cook until the Brussels sprouts are lightly browned and cooked to your liking.

Sep 4

Add sesame seeds on top, salt and pepper to taste, and serve immediately.

FAQ's

What if I don’t have coconut aminos?

Coconut aminos is amazing seasoning sauce and I highly recommend you try it! If you don’t have coconut aminos, you can use a little sesame oil and soy sauce instead.

Can I use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic?

Yes, you can use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic if you prefer. I would start with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon.

Can I use sesame oil?

Yes, you can use sesame oil in place of extra virgin olive oil if you want more sesame flavor or you can also use half and half!

What can I serve these Sesame Ginger Brussels Sprouts with?

These would be an amazing appetizer for homemade sushi or my Mae Ploy Chicken Soft Tacos. You can also serve them as a side dish to my Sweet Chili Baby Back Ribs or my Pork & Peppers Lettuce Cups!

Why go organic?

You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you're making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don't need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.

Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it's already a healthy recipe, or you're already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn't mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
