roasted brussels sprouts with sweet chili sauce recipe-9571

Servings: 4      Prep Time: 5 minutes      Cook Time: 25 minutes

Thai Sweet Chili Sauce can be found in most supermarkets (look in the Asian section). It's a sweet sauce perfect for dipping dumplings, egg rolls and adding to stir-fries. The sauce is more sweet than spicy (probably a spicy level of 3 out of 10) - even kids will love it. My favorite brand is Mae Ploy.

If you don't have fish sauce, use low sodium soy sauce.

Ingredients:

1 pound brussels sprouts, stem trimmed and halved
2 tablespoons cooking oil
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 teaspoons fish sauce or soy sauce
2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce

Directions:

Heat the oven to 400F. On a baking sheet, toss the brussels sprouts in cooking oil to coat evenly. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, tossing them halfway so they cook evenly. Remove brussels sprouts from the oven and turn on oven broiler to high, with the oven rack positioned in the top third of the oven.

In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over the brussels sprouts, tossing to coat evenly. Broil the brussels sprouts for 5 minutes or until the sugar in the chili sauce is bubbling and caramelizing. Watch them carefully so they don't burn! Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
