‘Cheesy’ Roasted Tahini Brussels Sprouts

BY : PUBLISHED : January 19th, 2021 UPDATED: August 18th, 2021

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’.

For the Love of Tahini

Have you tried tahini before? If you are not familiar with it we invite you to open up your culinary minds and give this sesame paste a try. We cannot sing our praises for this creamy paste enough. It is not only delicious (it has a yummy nutty taste to it), but it has amazing nutritional qualities to add to the fun. Did you know that two tablespoons of tahini have 128 mg of calcium? This makes tahini an amazing addition to a plant-based diet.

You can add it to dressings, use it as a spread, or coat yummy veggies like these Cheesy Roasted Tahini Brussels Sprouts. Let us know your favorite ways to use tahini!
