Roasted Asian Brussels Sprouts

Written by , Posted in Health

Today I wanted to share this great little side dish that I have discovered recently thanks to my friend and trainer Chelsea. I love Brussels sprouts and order them as a side almost every time I go out to eat. Until now, I have never been able to make them quite as delicious. However, I love this healthy and tasty way to make them at home. Did I mention it’s super quick and easy and only takes a handful of ingredients? Try them for yourself and be sure to let me know what you think.


  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts, washed and halved
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (non-GMO soy sauce flavored seasoning containing 16 essential and nonessential amino acids) *You can use soy sauce if you prefer
  • 1 tbsp white sesame seeds
  • pinch of pepper
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss halved Brussels sprouts with sesame oil, liquid aminos/soy sauce, sesame seeds, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  3. Spread the Brussels sprouts onto an aluminum foil lined baking sheet
  4. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until desired tenderness. (Personally, I like my sprouts a little crispy on the bottoms, so I broil them for about 5 minutes at the end.) If you choose to broil them at the end like I do, just be sure to keep a close eye on them as they will burn quickly if left to broil for too long.

Makes 4 servings.
