Soy Ginger Brussel Sprouts

These are absolutely mouthwatering.  I am a huge brussel sprout fan and these, "blew my mind."  The perfect amount of sweet and spice with a hint of citrus!  My husband is out of town on business so, my dinners this week have been random and AWESOME.  Tonight consisted of these bad boys, carrots and hummus with a spinach smoothie...  These are a perfect side dish for any dinner and come together pretty fast. 

  • 1 lb brussel sprouts, trimmed and cut in 1/2
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons Agave Nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, freshly ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • juice and zest from 1 small lemon
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Mix together oils, ginger and red pepper flakes in a small bowl.  Transfer mixture into a large skillet and heat on medium/high heat.

Add brussel sprouts to skillet when oil is hot and let cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

Stir soy sauce and let simmer for another 5 minutes.

Add lemon juice/zest, Agave and salt and pepper.   Let brussel sprouts caramelize and serve.
