These Asian Roasted Brussels Sprouts will change your life…
…or at least become one of your new favorite side dishes! My husband’s recipe is now famous among family and friends, and once you try it you’ll see why.
Crispy and sticky-sweet, yet without the added sugar you might find in some other recipes. You only need four simple ingredients to prepare these healthy Asian Roasted Brussels Sprouts.
Perhaps the biggest plus — they’re kid-approved! (My husband has a trick for making all veggies taste incredible, which I’ll share below).
These are my oldest daughter’s number one choice for vegetables. When a kid requests your Brussels sprouts, you know you’ve got a winner!
My husband (the chef in the family) spent months studying offerings at some of our favorite restaurants and testing out variations at home until he came up with this simple, yet delicious recipe.
How to Make Mateo’s Famous Asian Roasted Brussels Sprouts
You only need four simple ingredients to prepare this healthy Asian Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe!
- 1 lb Brussels Sprouts
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 TB Rice Vinegar
- 2 TB Mirin (Sweet Japanese cooking wine, my husband’s “secret” ingredient for making vegetables taste amazing)
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 20 minutes
STEP ONE: Rinse Brussels Sprouts under running water and shake (if in bag like shown above) or pat dry. Cut off the stems and score the bottom of sprouts (basically cutting an X in the bottom to allow the flavors to be better absorbed), shown below:
**TIP: As you are cutting, some of the leaves will fall off — KEEP THESE and add to mixing bowl with the sprouts. These leaves will crisp up in the oven and are actually the best part! You can even tear off a few extra leaves to have more of these “chips.”
STEP TWO: Once the sprouts are trimmed, scored, and in a mixing bowl, add 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1TB rice vinegar, and 2TB mirin. (Notice our little “helper” in the background!)
Optional Add 1/4tsp brown sugar for a little extra sweetness.
STEP THREE: Toss Brussels Sprouts in sauce to coat completely. You can cook right away, or let them soak for a few minutes to absorb more flavor.
STEP FOUR: Spread sprouts and leaves on a baking sheet covered in non-stick foil (or lightly coated with cooking spray).
Update 7/5/15: We stopped using foil after we found these reusable, non-stick silicon baking mats. They are awesome for any baking project!!
STEP FIVE: Bake at 350° for 20 minutes until crisp. You will smell the roasted Brussels sprouts when they are done! Enjoy!
