Ingredients
Chili Lime Brussel Sprouts
  • 2 C. Brussel sprouts, halved or quartered depending on size
  • 3 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Agave nectar
  • 1/4 tsp. Chili powder
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • Oil for frying
  • Chili lime salt to sprinkle on top(optional)
Sweet and Spicy Lime Aioli
  • 1 C. Vegan mayo
  • 1 Tbsp. Agave nectar
  • 1 Tbsp. Sriracha
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Make the aioli by adding all the ingredients to a small mixing bowl. Whisk together, taste and adjust seasoning. Set aside or place in fridge until ready to use. 

  2. Now, start heating about 1 inch of oil in a cast iron skillet or large skillet. Heat to about 350 degrees. 

  3. While the oil is heating, add the brussel sprouts to a mixing bowl. Pour the remaining ingredients over the brussel sprouts and toss to coat completely. 

  4. Once the oil is hot, drop the sprouts in small batches into the hot oil. Reduce heat as needed. Fry for a few minutes in each side until they start to get brown and crispy. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel. 

  5. Repeat until all the sprouts have been fried. Sprinkle with chili lime salt if desired. Serve immediately with aioli. 

Recipe Notes

If you don't want to fry the brussel sprouts, you can roast them on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for about 15-25 minutes or so, (depending on the size) until they get brown and a bit crispy. Just check them after about 15 minutes. They won't be as crispy, but are still super delicious.
