Glazed Sesame Brussels Sprouts

By Chef Amanda DeLaura

Have we moved past the Brussels sprouts craze? I certainly haven’t! They are still good for me—packed with Vitamin K, high fiber, and antioxidants—so why wouldn’t I keep enjoying them? This particular recipe was adapted from a sesame chicken dish I discovered in The New York Times. It is easy, delicious, and pairs well with varying proteins—particularly roasted chicken, baked salmon, or grilled pork chops. Bon appétit!
