Roasted Brussels Sprouts in sweet chili sauce

IMG_0781

Brussels sprouts are not exactly the most popular vegetable around!  I have been looking for recipes which can make these healthy mini cabbages more palatable.  Jyoti sent me this recipe and I tried it.  Not only was it easy to make, but it was delicious and flavorful.  Definitely a keeper!  This fantastic vegetable from the cruciferous family is anti inflammatory and anti cancerous.  It is full of antioxidants and is a good source of dietary fiber.

What you need:

! pound Brussels sprouts quartered

2 tbsp cooking oil

2 garlic cloves

2 tsp soy sauce(I use the low sodium one)

2 tbsp sweet chili sauce(I like the thai sweet chili sauce which is more sweet and less chili)

Pinch of sea salt

How to make:

1.  Heat the oven to 400 F.

2.  In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, soy sauce and the sweet chili sauce.

3.  On a baking sheet, toss the Brussels sprouts in cooking oil and sea salt to coat evenly.  Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, tossing them after about 10 mins, so that they cook evenly.  

3.  Remove Brussels sprouts from the oven and turn on the broiler to high. Now pour the soy sauce/garlic/sweet chili sauce mixture over the Brussels sprouts and mix well so as to coat evenly and put back in the oven to broil.

4.  Broil the Brussels sprouts for 5 minutes or until the sugar in the chili sauce is bubbling .  Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
