Brussel sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. They have a delicious earthy flavor and they are so beautiful on the plate. This recipe combines tender, pan seared brussel sprouts with a sweet mustard sauce you can’t get enough of. You never knew brussel sprouts could taste this amazing!
Brussel sprouts seem to get a bad rap. I believe this is due to overcooking. When you cook brussel sprouts too long their sulfur flavor comes out more. This makes them pretty unappealing. Pay attention when cooking and turn off the heat as soon as they are tender.
This recipe is the perfect vegan side for any winter meal. It comes together quickly in just 15 minutes. Best of all, it is packed full of healthy plant-based ingredients. Brussel sprouts are a great source of vitamins A, B6, C and K. They are also rich in antioxidants. Their high fiber content will also promote good digestion. Mustard is also a good source for many essential nutrients such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and potassium. It has also been known to help lower cholesterol and prevent certain cancers. This side dish will leave you feeling satisfied and renewed. Now let’s get to it!
Pan seared brussel sprouts smothered in an addictive sweet mustard sauce.
- 1 lb brussel sprouts, halved
- 1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
- 1 tbsp vegan worcestershire sauce
- 3 tbsp stone ground mustard
- 2 tbsp agave nectar
- 2 tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp vegan worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp salt
In a heavy bottomed pan over medium heat, add soy sauce, 1 tbsp vegan worcestershire sauce, and the brussel sprouts. Cover and turn the heat down to low. Allow to steam, covered, for 5 minutes.
Remove the cover and turn brussel sprouts so the cut side is facing down, with as many touching the pan as possible. There still should be some liquid left at this point, if not add more using equal parts of soy sauce and vegan worcestershire sauce. Turn the heat back to medium and allow to cook for 5 more minutes until the bottom sides are dark and starting to caramelize.
While you cook the brussel sprouts make the mustard sauce by mixing stone ground mustard, agave nectar, dijon mustard, 1 tsp vegan worcestershire sauce, and salt together in a small bowl.
Drizzle mustard sauce over warm brussel sprouts. Cover and wait 2 minutes for sauce to warm up. Serve right away. Enjoy!
