1 1/2 Teaspoons Organic Crushed Dried Red Pepper
1/2 Head Organic Garlic, minced


Preheat oven to 400,.  On a baking sheet, toss brussel sprouts with olive oil and sea salt.  Roast for 35 minutes, until outer leaves are crispy.  While hot, place sprouts in mixing bowl.  Stir in 1/2 to 1/4 cup sweet chili vinegar. Stir in lemon juice. Toss with agave chili sauce and top with fresh chopped basil.

Directions for Agave Chili Sauce:

Take all ingredients in a saucepan over low heat.  Cook 3-4 minutes.


If you were on the fence about brussel sprouts and haven’t found a way you can enjoy them you have got to try this recipe.  They are super nutritious and provide a wonderful sweet, sour and spicy flair. This is my new favorite way to make brussel srpouts.  We have removed the white sugar, white vinegar and sea salt from the recipe making it a perfectly healthy side or entree for any meal.

    My good friend, Thanks regarding this particular article titled Basil Brussel Sprouts w/ Agave Chili Vinegar « It so happens that recently I just had been discussing with my friends concerning this topic and for the most part We are in agreement as to what you happen to be stating. I have been talking about this specific matter a whole lot of late together with our friends which means that hopefully it will help me make my position.

    I would like to make a request and that is that it would be great if you could enter into a little bit more detail. Or perhaps you can actually point us to some additional web-sites where we are able to get more information.

    One last thing, I am wondering if you have heard anything with regards to MUFAs (Mono Unsaturated Fatty Acids). If you have then would you please put up a write-up about this?
