Literally anything with peanut sauce is magical right!? At least that’s what I think 😉 But when I had Brussels sprouts similar to these Thai Peanut ones out at a restaurant, I knew I needed to remake. And let me tell ya, these are GOOOD.
They would be perfect to serve alongside dinner as a delicious side or honestly by themselves. If you love peanut butter as much as I do, you’ll love these! Plus, they are the perfect amount of savory with still a tang.
The key to making these is first cooking them in the skillet! I like to use a Lodge Cast Iron Skillet for them. It gets the brussels sprouts super crispy and then finishing them off in the oven makes it even better.
What you need for the creamy peanut butter sauce:
- Creamy peanut butter **creamy is key
- Coconut aminos
- Rice vinegar
- Garlic powder, sea salt
What to pair these Thai Peanut Brussels sprouts with:
- Toss in a buddha bowl with roasted veggies!
- Eat right out of the bowl
- Alongside some chicken or steak
