Ingredients

  • olive oil
  • Brussels sprouts
  • salt and pepper
  • sour cream
  • Dijon mustard
  • apple cider vinegar
  • sweetener

How to cook Brussels sprouts 

Brussels sprouts were my childhood torture food. My mom would boil them until they were brown and mushy and then over season them with salt. It was truly awful. Please do us both a favor and DON’T BOIL YOUR SPROUTS!

So how should you cook them? Roast them in the oven on a sheet pan, pan-fry them, or toss them in the air-fryer. These are my three favorite ways to cook them. All three of those methods will leave you with a perfectly crisp-tender center and a nice char on the outside.

Substitutions and Variations

  • In place of the olive oil, you could also use avocado oil, coconut oil, ghee or butter
  • Not a fan of sprouts? This recipe would also be amazing with broccoli
  • For a dairy free version, you could substitute mayo in place of the sour cream and add a little more vinegar
  • If you don’t have dijon mustard, stone ground or spicy brown are great options
  • While apple cider vinegar really is the best vinegar for this recipe, you could substitute apple cider or even hard cider
  • If you aren’t a fan of monkfrui, you can use your low carb sweetener of choice.

Brussels Sprouts with Creamy Dijon Cider Dressing

 

These aren’t the mushy, overcooked sprouts of your childhood. At least that’s how Brussels sprouts were served in my home when I was growing up. Pan-frying or oven-roasting Brussels sprouts takes away a lot of that bitter flavor profile they are known for, and mushiness is no longer an issue. Pairing the sprouts with this creamy Dijon cider dressing is a match made in heaven. Think honey mustard without the added carbs from honey. Yum!

Tip: This dressing is also great with shaved raw Brussels sprouts as a cold salad.
