Thai-Inspired Brussels Sprouts Stir-Fry recipe

I’ve always loved Brussels sprouts. They are such a wonderful vegetable whether it’s baked, steamed, or sliced finely and eaten raw.

A major distinction separates Thai and Chinese cuisines is the usage of fish sauce.  If you aren’t a fan of fish sauce, skip it.  Replace it with a few dash of Coconut Aminos, a few sprinkle of sea salt, and definitely garlic slices to bring out the flavor of this wonderful dish.

I made a whole bunch of these during my meal prep and store them in an airtight glass container. They taste even better in cold !

If you love Brussels sprouts, I encourage you to give this simple dish a try.

You are going to love it !

Ingredients

  • 4 cups brussels sprouts, bottoms trimmed, halved in half (or in quarter if large size)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, or cooking fat of your choice
  • 2-3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small red chilie*, (optional) thinly sliced. Seeds removed.

Stir-fry sauce:

Instructions

  • Bring a large soup pot to boil. Add 1 tsp sea salt to the water. Add brussels sprouts and quickly blanch them for about 1 min. Remove from the pot. Drain and shock in ice/cold water. Set aside to drain.
  • Heat a large saute skillet with 1 tbsp coconut oil over high heat. When hot, lower heat to medium, add 1 tbsp garlic & saute until fragrant (about 8-10 seconds).
  • Add brussels sprouts & saute for about 30 seconds. Add stir-fry sauce and saute until the sprouts are tender but still crunchy (about 1 minute).
  • Serve in room temperature or slightly chilled. 

Notes

* I use california red fresno chili for this dish. You can also use serrano chili pepper if Thai chili is not accessible. Skip the chili for a non-spicy version. 
*If you prefer not to use Red Boat fish sauce, skip it and add a bit more coconut aminos with coarse salt. The dish will taste more Chinese-ish. It'll still be yummy !
