Why This Recipe is a Keeper!

These sweet and spicy Brussels sprouts are definitely NOT your average Brussels sprout!

If you’re a regular reader, then you know Brussels sprouts are my all-time favorite vegetable and I eat them frequently.  Because I do eat them so frequently, I always look for new ways to prepare them. This way is one of my go-to recipes because it’s so simple and delicious!

This spicy and slightly sweet recipe is super easy and basically involves the marriage of two condiments you may already have on hand:  Sriracha hot sauce and sweet chili sauce. Add a little oil, salt and pepper and that’s all you need!

Sriracha Sweet Chili Brussels Sprouts pair perfectly with Asian-inspired dishes like Beef Lettuce Wraps. They also make a great appetizer. Simply roast them whole, place a toothpick or other party pick in them and serve!

Let’s make ’em!

Ingredients for Sriracha Sweet Chili Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Brussels sprouts in white distressed colander and remaining ingredients in glass bowls.

Ingredient Notes and Substitutions:

  • Brussels Sprouts: When buying Brussels sprouts, look for bright green heads with tightly packed leaves. They should be firm and heavy for their size. Avoid any with yellowing leaves or black spots. Small sprouts are usually sweeter than large ones. Use within 3 to 4 days of purchasing because they tend to take on a more “cabbagey” flavor the older they get.
  • Canola Oil: Use any neutral-flavored oil such as grapeseed.
  • Sriracha: Also known as “rooster sauce,” it has become as popular as Tabasco sauce. Sriracha was first produced by a Thai woman in the town of Si Racha, Thailand. It’s made with chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt.
  • Sweet Chili Sauce: Also known as Thai sweet chili sauce, this condiment is popular in Thai, Afghan and Malaysian cuisine. It’s made with red chili peppers (often Fresno chile, Thai or red jalapeños), rice wine vinegar, garlic, sometimes fish sauce and sugar.

Step-By-Step Instructions:

  • Gather and prep all the ingredients.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spread the halved Brussels sprouts out on a nonstick baking sheet or line a baking sheet with nonstick aluminum foil.
  • Drizzle the oil over the Brussels sprouts, toss to coat and season with salt and black pepper.
  • Drizzle Sriracha hot sauce over the Brussels sprouts and toss to coat again.
  • Turn the Brussels sprouts so they’re cut side down.

Chef Tip:

  • Because I’m right-handed, I always wear a disposable glove on my right hand when trimming and halving Brussels sprouts because I tend to nick my thumb with the paring knife. I don’t draw blood, but my thumb does start to get sensitive. You could also wear a fingertip cot or place a bandage over your thumb to protect it.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I make Sriracha Sweet Chili Brussels Sprouts ahead of time?

Although these Brussels sprouts reheat fine, the reheated product is probably not what you want to serve guests. Have the Brussels sprouts all trimmed and halved then proceed with roasting them as directed.

What vegetables could I use in place of Brussels sprouts?

This flavor combination is also delicious with broccoli, broccolini and green beans!

Storage:

  • Refrigerate all leftovers and consume them within 4 to 5 days for the best flavor.
