Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Black Garlic Aioli

Now that, we are working from home, full-time, I am constantly thinking about quick and easy nibbles for during the day.  I don’t want to spend more than an hour, preparing and eating lunch, when I am busy at my desk.  This recipe is perfect as we can even nibble at our desks while working.

We have been in Brussels Sprouts heaven the past couple weeks as OceanMist recently surprised us with a package box full of fresh Brussels Sprouts to work on some new recipes.  Lucky for you this is only one of the new recipes that I will be sharing over the course of the next couple weeks.  I love how quick and easy this recipe comes together to make a light lunch/snack or even a great side dish;  we also enjoyed it with a roasted chicken.

When we were both kids, on separate coasts, we were not fans of the Brussels Sprouts.  We are pretty sure it was because they were boiled or steamed until pasty green.  As adults, we love them!  Not only are sprouts little bites of fun, they are also very good for us.  Brussels Sprouts are a member of the cruciferous family, and they contain large amounts of antioxidants, vitamin C and beta-carotene;  they have even been found to help reduce the risk of certain cancers.  The nice thing, they can be found year-round, so eat up!!





A few other recipes that we have been enjoying the last couple weeks are some old favorites:

    I can’t wait to try this! I just got back from Paris two weeks ago and had some amazing garlic aioli like yours with a terrine des poissons and crusty brown french bread. Now I don’t have to search for the recipe!

  3. What a perfect idea for a snack/lunch, these are delightful! And I simply adore black garlic…this aioli is a must try!

  6. This recipe looks so delicious! I will definitely have to try it. I have been eating healthier for the last 8 months and it feels great. I definitely appreciate food more and i am always looking for new healthy recipes. I believe that slimming down and getting healthy is a lifestyle change and takes some planning and diet tools to help you get there.

    Some black garlic found its way into my pantry, and this aioli sounds perfect to serve with my roasted Brussels sprouts this Christmas.
