Simple Spicy Roasted Brussels Sprouts-3

Happy Spring friends!

Yesterday was the first day of spring, and it was a gorgeous sunny day.  Cold, but sunny.  However, even with the sun and spring,  I am still suffering from the loss of hours from daylight savings time.  I feel like I  have a slight hangover each day and it is time for me to snap out of it and get on getting on.

I mean Easter is next weekend and it is going to get busy up in here with the upcoming holiday preparations and I need to get my game face on for all the food preparations. One thing I have been working on is coming up with some new veggie side dishes for the Easter menu.

Vegetarian Brussels Sprouts Recipes

We love brussels sprouts and I tend to make them every week.  I am always trying to come up with new ways to serve them up.  This simple spicy roasted brussels sprout recipe is great for a weeknight or a holiday dinner. 

Adding some spice and fresh zest really liven up these nutty little cabbages.  Using walnut oil helps to enhance the nutty flavor and add a great source of healthy fats.

Brussel Sprouts or Brussels Sprouts?

Growing up we called them Brussel sprouts.  It wasn’t until I was an adult that I realized it was Brussels sprouts. Apparently, the correct way to say it and spell it is Brussels sprouts. Who knew?

Whatever you call them or however you spell them, they are delicious.

Can You Eat Brussels Sprouts Raw?

Yes, you can eat them raw. I actually quite like them that way.  Slice them thinly and add to a salad for a great crunch. Another way to enjoy them raw is to juice them. I haven’t tried that yet, but it is on my list of things to do.

How Long Do Brussels Sprouts Last in the Fridge?

Raw brussels sprouts will last in the fridge for 3-5 days.  Cooked brussels sprouts will last in the fridge for 5-7 days.

You’ll want to make sure to store them in an airtight container. I like to use a glass storage container. Being able to see through the container helps me to see when I need to use them up.

Can I Freeze Brussels Sprouts?

Brussels sprouts can also be frozen.  Raw or cooked, they will last in the freezer for 8-12 months.

To freeze raw brussels sprouts, first wash and dry them.  Trim off any yellow leaves and the stem end. Cut them in half or leave them whole.  I like to blanch them for 2 minutes before freezing, but this step is not necessary.

To freeze cooked brussels sprouts, allow them to cool completely then place in a freezer safe container.

When you are ready to use them, thaw in the fridge overnight or cook frozen.

Are Brussels Sprouts Keto?

Yes, brussels sprouts are keto-friendly. Although they are considered a carb like all veggies, it’s the right kind of carb. Adding a source of protein and healthy fat to the dish will help to make it more filling and satisfying.

Now let’s get to the recipe so you can try them for yourself.
