Sesame Peanut Sprouts

Asian ingredients like sesame oil and fish sauce bring funky flavor to ordinary Brussels sprouts, while roasted peanuts add a pleasant, salty crunch.
Brussels sprouts are hands down my favorite vegetable and this is one of my everyday methods for cooking those pygmy cabbages.

ACTIVE TIME: 20 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 40 minutes
Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh Brussels sprouts
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flake
  • 2 ounces roasted peanuts, chopped


  • Heat oven to 425°F.
  • Trim the dry ends from the sprout and remove any yellow outer leaves, then halve the sprouts longitudinally.
  • Toss the sprouts with the olive oil and salt in a large bowl and spread in an even layer on a half-sheet pan, cut-sides down. Roast until the sprouts are lightly browned and tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • While the sprouts are still hot, toss in a large bowl with the sesame oil, fish sauce, red pepper flake, and roasted peanuts. Serve warm.
