When I was growing up I don’t think you could have convinced me to eat a brussel sprout, even if you tried to bribe me. As a teenager, I was a carb-heavy vegetarian (aka I only ate vegetables if they were on a pizza or in my spaghetti sauce). In college I started to eat “healthier” and add a side salad to my quesadillas and slices of pizza. Then I discovered health and wellness blogs. My life changed!
I distinctly remember reading a recipe for brussels sprouts on someone’s blog. They talked about them in a way that made me think I had mistaken the name for boiled disgusting mini cabbages I had when I was growing up – BLEH! So I tried them again. Shaved thin, seared up in a skillet and liberally salted. OMG y’all HEAVEN!
This whole30 Sriracha brussels sprouts recipe once again changed my outlook on brussels. I honestly didn’t think they could get much better. But the flavor in this dish, it’s like I’ve rediscovered brussels sprouts again! The creamy tahini paired with salty, slightly sweet coconut aminos all paired with spicy sriracha. You really need to make this recipe like NOW!
I found my new favorite Sriracha at Whole Foods Wilmington the other day when I was looking for some sauerkraut in the refrigerated part of the produce section. You have to pick up this Green Sriracha from Wild Brines! Not only is it spicy but it’s also amazing for improving your gut health! Eating fermented foods is one of the easiest ways you can improve the quality of your gut. A healthier gut = less sickness and less bloating. So go pick up a jar and make this recipe! Oh and this sriracha is Whole30 approved, so go get you some before your next Whole30!
I used a cast iron skillet to make this recipe! I have finally embraced my cast iron skillet after owning it for 3 years and never touching it. It’s honestly so easy to use and clean, I just have to remember to preheat the skillet for a few minutes before using it or the food does not come out seared and full of flavor.
