Sweet Chili Sauce Roasted Brussels Sprouts | Gluten-free, Dairy-Free

Hello, Sweet Chili Sauce Roasted Brussels Sprouts!

I love Brussels sprouts.  We have a bunch of places here in Austin that serve killer Brussels sprouts.  Peached Tortilla, ATX Cocina, Uchiko and East Side King to name a few.

And we have a few go-to super easy recipes on the blog.

I really want to try and replicate the ATX Cocina fried Brussels with green chorizo and green mole one day.  So good.

But one of my favorite super simple sides are the Crispy Parmesan Brussels.  And then there are the bacon Brussels tossed in simple vinaigrette.

So y’all these sweet chili sauce Brussels are so easy to make – literally just a couple ingredients and you have this sticky, delicious, wonderful side dish.  

Now it’s not super healthy because of the sugar in the sweet chili sauce but it is gluten and dairy free and a delicious indulgence.

I love Grama’s Sweet Chilli Sauce.  

It is super tasty and made with a few simple ingredients, plus it is non-GMO, gluten-free and doesn’t contain preservatives.  It goes really well with those Feel Good Food gluten-free egg rolls.  Yum!

And we love the Coconut Aminos Garlic Sauce from Coconut Secret.  Also, gluten-free, soy-free, diary-free, etc.

Combine the two with a pinch of Thai red chili powder (for a little extra heat) and voila!  

Sweet chili sauce roasted brussels sprouts with a little sweet, savory and heat!  My husband is now requesting this side dish on the daily.   

So for the Brussels sprouts, just cut off the bottom, then pull off the outer leaves.  Cut the Brussels in half.  

Place in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil and hit them with some salt and pepper.  

Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees F.   We usually end up with about 1/2 lb (8 oz) Brussels sprouts halves from a 12 oz of whole Brussels sprouts.

So you don’t need to make a lot of sauce for these sweet chili sauce roasted Brussels sprouts.  

We used two tablespoons of the sweet chili sauce and mixed it with one tablespoon of the coconut aminos garlic sauce.  Then I added in a pinch of Thai red chili flakes for a little extra heat.

You could leave out the chili flakes or add your favorite hot sauce, Sriracha, red pepper flakes…

After the Brussels sprouts are roasted nicely, pull them out of the oven.

Pour the sauce over them and bake for another 6-7 minutes.  Then serve sprinkled with a some sesame seeds.  So easy and so yummy!

You get one life - do your best to ENJOY IT! So hi, I'm Deana. This food blog is all about cooking wholesome real food and developing gluten-free recipes for some of our favorite comfort foods. I had to start eating gluten-free in 2010, then cut dairy and casein (except for the occasional Parmesan) in 2014. We learned A2 casein (goat, sheep and buffalo milk) is easier to digest than the predominate A1 form in cow milk. So we brought back goat milk dairy into our recipes in 2016. Thank goodness, right! So I'm kind of a science nerd, too. In the '90s, I earned an undergrad degree in biochemistry from The University of Texas at Austin. Hook 'em! Then followed up with a PhD in biochemistry and a law degree from the University of Houston. I recently earned a certificate in genomics/sequence analysis from Johns Hopkins University, where I also took a very cool food microbiology course. Currently, I'm learning about the microbiome and gut health. And trying to come up with healthy recipes to feed those gut bugs! #feedthegutbugs
