Agave-Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Vegan Cashew Glaze

Just the scent of these Brussels sprouts is enough to make you wanna have them a few times a week.


I kid you not.

No pun on the ‘kid’ as we all hated Brussels sprouts growing up, didn’t we?

Why was that?

Why do they have such a bad reputation amongst all the other veggies?

The past year I’ve become slightly addicted to Brussels sprouts- as in- I just can’t get enough of ’em.

I’ve got so many sprout recipes comin’ your way- so you better start loading up on these babies now.

But this Brussels sprout recipe is a bit different- it’s unique, to say the least…

I picked up some real beauties this week- they’re huge and so flavorful.

I was big into steaming the spouts a few months ago- but o man, let me tell you- when you roast ’em up- you’ll never go back to the steam machine.

And the flavor in these agave roasted sprouts is out-of-this-world. Well, I think it is. You’ll have to let me know your thoughts- but I have a feeling you’ll like ’em, too.

You start by brewing some green tea and pouring it over the Brussels spouts in a roasting pan along with agave nectar.  Pop ’em into the oven for a nice roasting session and then get busy on your cashew glaze.

It sounds a lot harder than it really is.

I’m a firm believer in the power of an electric mixer- just add the remaining ingredients and whip ’em up until you get a creamy glaze to drizzle atop your roasted sprouts.

Pretty easy, isn’t it?

And the aroma- O my goodness. The sizzling agave and green tea fills your kitchen after a mere five minutes and you’ll be eying the timer to reach in and bite a sprout from minute six to thirty.

These just aren’t any old Brussels sprouts.

They’re special and hey, who knows…

Maybe your kids will eat ’em up, too.
