How to make oven roasted honey sriracha brussels sprouts

Preheat the oven to 210°C / 200°C fan oven / 410°F. Clean the brussels sprouts properly, and add to a bowl. Add honey and sriracha, and stir to coat the brussels sprouts thoroughly. Transfer to a baking sheet, and roast the brussels sprouts in the oven until they are slightly charred and have softened, around 30 minutes. They should be soft enough to push a fork through with little resistance.

Ideas to make brussels sprouts taste good

I love brussels sprouts, and I believe the main reason why so many people hate them is that very few people know how to cook them properly. Overcooked, soggy, mushy brussels sprouts do not belong on anyone’s dinner table. Instead, try roasting them like in this recipe, steaming them, sauteing them in a pan, or shredding them for a salad. And don’t forget the seasoning! If you want to try other flavor combinations, try roasting brussels sprouts with maple syrup, or adding them to a flavorful casserole.

Best tips for a great result

  • These taste best when served immediately. If you want to prepare the brussels sprouts ahead, you can clean them and add the marinade, then leave in the fridge overnight or until you’re ready to roast them.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. They will lose their crunch when refrigerated, but will still be good!
  • Choose a nice, runny honey, as they are way easier to work with.
  • Make the recipe vegan by replacing the honey with agave syrup.

 

What is sriracha?

Sriracha is a chili sauce with Asian origin. It’s commonly used as a condiment, dipping sauce, or added to dishes to spice them up. You typically find it in the supermarket with other condiments, or in the Asian cooking aisle. It is quite spicy, and if you’re not a big fan of spice, you might want to use a smaller amount for this recipe.
