Brussels sprouts have had a terrible reputation for too long! These nutrient packed greens can be so delicious – if you prepare them the right way. Enter – Sesame Soy Glazed Brussels Sprouts.
We’ve come a long way from boiling brussels sprouts. Yuck. There are so many ways to make spouts so delicious with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.
Before I met my husband, I never ate brussels sprouts. I guess we never ate them growing up, but either way, I had doubts.
But when he started adding things like panchetta and pine nuts, I warmed up to them.
Now, this recipe is our favorite way to make brussels sprouts. I especially love adding cayenne pepper for a kick.
