Tips and Tricks For Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts
Roasting Brussels Sprouts
I sliced my sprouts in half. I find that you speed up the cook time when you are not cooking them whole. Plus, when the sprouts are sliced in half it's easier for all the creamy sauce to soak into them.
Picking Brussels Sprouts
Choose firm and brightly green Brussels sprouts. You want sprouts within 1–2 inches in diameter. If they are larger, you will find they may be a bit sour or tangy.
The cooking time will vary depending on the size of your sprouts. Cook the sprouts until they are golden-colored in spots and tender when poked with a fork.
Variations to Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts
Instead of drizzling the rest of the sauce at the end, you can save the second half of the sauce to use as a dipping sauce.
Make It Vegan
Swap the honey in this recipe with agave, if you would like. The agave will still provide that sweet flavor but make these sprouts vegan-friendly.
Spice It Up
Add more sriracha to the sauce or drizzle extra sriracha on top to ramp up the heat factor of the sprouts.
Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts FAQs
Storing leftover Brussels Sprouts
If you happen to have leftovers, allow the sprouts to cool before placing them in an airtight container. Store leftover sprouts in the fridge for 3–4 days. Then reheat and enjoy!
Can I make these Brussels sprouts in an air fryer?
If you're wondering whether you can make these sprouts in your air fryer, the answer is yes!
Preheat your air fryer to 375°F. Lay parchment paper down, then place your sprouts on the paper and cook accordingly. Add the first half of the sauce as directed, roast sprouts for 1–2 minutes more, then remove and pour the rest of the sauce over the sprouts.
