If I took a poll in my house, the general consensus would be that Brussels sprouts are the favorite vegetable. Yes, even my younger children love them. How many moms can tell their children, “Brussels sprouts with dinner tonight.” and get cheers and excited reactions over the tender, sweet and slightly nutty sprouts? I love that when I fix foods from the Cruciferae, or cabbage, family that it makes my children happy. Cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, even kale. They love them. And they love this roasted Brussels sprouts with Dijon sauce recipe.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Dijon Sauce
Adapted from Ina Garten’s Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe
- 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 1/2 teaspoons butter *use Earth Balance to veganize
- 2 small shallots, thinly sliced
- 3/4 cup dry white wine
- 3/4 cup vegetable broth
- 1/4 cup heavy cream *use non-dairy creamer to veganize
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Clean up the Brussels sprouts by cutting off the brown ends and pulling off any yellow outer leaves. Place the Brussels sprouts in a mixing bowl, add the olive oil, salt and pepper and toss until they are well coated.
- Place them on a baking sheet, cut-side down. Roast for 30-35 minutes, until they are beginning to get crisp on the outside and they are tender on the inside.
- Meanwhile, melt the butter in skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots, and cook for 1 minute or until tender. Add in the wine, and cook for 30 seconds. Add the vegetable broth and cream, whisking continually, until it has thickened slightly, about 1 minute. Whisk in the Dijon mustard, salt and pepper to taste.
- When the Brussels sprouts are done, remove them from the oven and add them to a large mixing bowl. Pour the Dijon sauce over the sprouts and toss until they are well coated. Serve immediately.
