Growing up, I absolutely hated Brussels sprouts.  Luckily, they only showed up on my plate a couple of times a year at family gatherings like Thanksgiving and Christmas.  As an adult, I now look forward to sprouts season and can’t get enough of them.

If you’re not on the sprouts train yet, I would highly suggest this recipe as a way to introduce them into your diet. Roasting the sprouts brings out a bit of a sweetness to compliment the slightly bitter flavour, and the sauce is creamy lemon garlic perfection – in fact you will want to eat it on everything which is a good thing, because you will have tahini sauce leftover after drizzling the sprouts with it.

Fun Fact: Did you know that Brussels Sprouts were grown on a stalk?!?!?

I honestly didn’t until just last year, but once I knew I was dying to get myself some Brussels sprouts fresh on the stalk.  As usual, our friends at Springh Farms did not disappoint –

I picked up this beautiful stalk of sprouts at our local farmers market and set straight into roasting up these beauties.

Although they look really cool on the stalk, the only benefit of buying them this way that I could think of would be that the sprouts are fresher when you purchase them.  Taking them off the stalk was quick enough – I just used a paring knife to pop them off one at a time.

HOW TO MAKE BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH LEMON TAHINI SAUCE

This dish honestly couldn’t get any easier.  Besides making the food taste great, roasting is one of my favourite methods of preparation because it is pretty hands off – just pop a tray in and take it back out when the cooking time is complete.

All you have to do is pre-heat your oven to 400℉, toss your sliced Brussels sprouts with some cooking oil, season, toss in the oven, and whisk together the sauce ingredients while your oven does all the work for you.
