Man, if this 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’.
