When in doubt on an appetizer to prepare that is super easy and sure to be enjoyed by everyone, keep things really simple.
I mean, really simple.
Like, just put a toothpick in it.
These roasted brussels sprouts with fresh ginger are no more complicated (and honestly, not complicated at all!) than roasting a tray of fresh veggies, because that is all they are!
But…since they have a toothpick in them, they are party food. And everyone likes a party…or at least, food with toothpicks in them.
GINGER BRUSSELS SPROUTS BITES
Serves many people as an appetizer (leave the toothpicks out to serve 4-6 as a side dish)
1 lb. of brussels sprouts, rinsed and tough ends removed
2 Tbs. of avocado oil
1 tsp. of sea salt
Dash of white pepper (optional)
1 tsp. of garlic powder
2 tsp. of fresh ginger, minced
2 Tbs. of coconut aminos (sub apple cider vinegar if preferred)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Line a baking tray with parchmont paper and set aside.
Rinse brussels sprouts and remove tough ends, then cut in half.
Arrange on a baking tray and pour avocado oil over them and gently toss with a spatula.
Sprinkle sea salt, (white pepper, if using) garlic powder and coconut aminos over sprouts and toss one more time.
Roast in your oven for 10 minutes, toss, and finish roasting for 10 more minutes.
Remove from your oven and gently toss with fresh ginger.
Stick toothpicks in each sprout and serve on a platter as a quick party bite and watch these little green snacks get gobbled up by all of your guests!
