Roasted Brussel Sprouts

By Hblack79

I am so excited to share this recipe with y’all today.  I decided to buy a bag of brussel sprouts on my last shopping trip.  I had no clue what I was going to do with them, but they looked pretty and I had never had brussel sprouts before.  As a vegetarian, I felt that it was finally time to give into the stereotypical “gross” vegetable and see what I could make of it.  I knew I was going to roast them and I seeked out some recipes on pinterest (of course!) but I didn’t find a recipe that either sounded good or that I had the ingredients for.  What does a blogger do?  Create a random recipe and hope for the best!


Tuesday night, I made yet another trip to Whole Foods.  The amount of charges on my card from Whole Foods is embarrassing, but I can’t help how I feel about this grocery store.  Plus, I find contentment by just walking around a grocery store, even more so a Whole Foods grocery store because of all the beautiful produce and natural options they provide.  Sorry, back to my story – I was in Whole Foods Tuesday night and they had the owners of Delta Blues Rice sampling their long grain rice and rice grits.  I had never had rice grits, but I gave them a try and instantly fell in love!  I picked up a bag right away.  When I was scrambling to decide on dinner last night, I came up with a combination of Rice Grits and Roasted Brussel Sprouts.

  • ½ bag of brussel sprouts
  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  1. Preheat oven to 400*
  2. Wash and cut brussel sprouts
  3. Mix soy sauce, garlic powder, and sesame seeds in a bag
  4. Add brussel sprouts to the bag and shake to coat evenly
  5. On a baking sheet, make an aluminum foil bowl and pour the coated brussel sprouts in the bowl
  6. Roast for 20 minutes, tossing halfway through, adding a small amount of soy sauce if needed
  7. Serve over rice
The timing turned out perfect with this recipe.  I put the rice on the stove to start boiling and preheated my oven.  While waiting on that, I was able to prepare the brussel sprouts, get them wrapped in aluminum foil, and by that time I was ready to start simmering the rice for 20 minutes and putting the brussel sprouts in the oven for 20 minutes.



I’m excited to see what else I can try on these Rice Grits.  They have some good looking recipes on their website that I think can easily be adapted for a vegetarian.  I’m definitely going to try out the risotto.  I love supporting local Mississippi businesses and farmers, I’m so glad that I ran into Whole Foods Tuesday night so I can get introduced to Delta Blues Rice.

If you’re interested in trying out Mississippi farmed rice, you can purchase online at Eat, Y’all! or if you’re a Mississippian, you can view a list of their retailers.

*I was not compensated for writing this blog post and I did not receive free product, I simply found a product I love and a Mississippi company I can support.  I wanted to share that with my readers, especially my local readers.*
