Man, if this Cheesy Roasted Tahini Brussels Sprouts recipe was around when mom wouldn’t let you leave the table until you finished your veggies, I would have been the first one done.
These cheesy crusted sprouts were inspired by my love for the whole “buffalo cauliflower” movement, I thought, I put tahini on nearly everything these days – and nutritional yeast for that matter – why not roll with it?’ (literally). And thus, these lovely flakey balls of veg were born.
Whether the addition to your dinner plate or as a snack to carry you through until dinner, these sprouts are sure to leave you cheesin’.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick spray.

In a medium-sized bowl, toss the brussels sprouts with the sauce until pieces are nearly completely covered.
