Post 2 of 2

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of the Brussel Sprout in almost any form; but this one is too exceptional NOT to share!  Although, not a deal breaker, I highly recommend that you make your own mayo for this aioli…see previous post!

 

What you will need:

  • Brussel sprouts
  • Bacon Grease or Coconut oil
  • Salt
  • 2/3 c Homemade Mayonnaise (see previous post for recipe)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp Raw Honey
  • 1/2 lemon/lime juiced
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • pinch of salt & pepper

How it’s Done:

Brussel Sprouts

  1. Preheat at 400
  2. Trim the brussels, and half them (depending on size and personal preference)
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (I had JUST baked some bacon and simply reused the same pan)  Ensure that the brussels are well coated with the grease/oil and then salt them.
  4. Bake for 5 min
  5. Then turn on the broiler, move pan to top rack and broil the brussels for 5-10 min (depending on your broiler, mine is weird)  you want them slightly charred, and crispy…be careful not to OVER-cook them.

Smoky Honey Aioli:

  1. Mix mayo, garlic, honey, lemon juice, paprika, salt & pepper together well.
  2. Drizzle on top of Brussel Sprouts and devour!!

Optional: top with Bacon 🙂

Peaches & Cream

Although we are definitely at the end of Peach Season, this is still a good one

  • Freshly made whipped cream (sweetened with coconut sugar)
  • Diced Peaches (season is almost over…but you can obviously substitute anything you want)
