  • 20 ounces of brussel sprouts, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons white sesame seeds
  • ½ to ¾ teaspoon red chili flakes or to taste
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint, cut into strips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Toss sprouts with oil, salt, and pepper.  Bake for a total of 30 minutes or until tender and lightly caramelized.  Toss halfway through and then cover with aluminum foil.  Roast at 400 degrees during last 4 to 5 minutes of baking time uncovered.
  2. Meanwhile toast sesame seeds in dry skillet over medium low heat for a few minutes or until lightly golden.  Stir frequently.  Let sesame seeds cool in a bowl along with the chili flakes (the residual heat from the toasting will help activate the chili’s heat.).
  3. When brussel sprouts are done, toss immediately with mint, sesame, and chili.  Enjoy!
