Okay, brussel sprouts always get such a bad reputation. Most people think of them as those little green balls that your grandma boiled and put absolutely no flavor or seasoning on. We all probably dreaded seeing these on our plate as a kid. Myself included. BUT let me tell you, my perception of brussel sprouts as an adult has definitely changed, and there are so many great ways to use them, like this shredded brussel sprout caesar salad.

What are the health benefits of brussel sprouts?

Brussel sprouts do not lack in benefits. These little veggies are low in calories, but high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. In particular, vitamin K which is necessary to prevent blood clotting and to keep your bones healthy. Brussel sprouts are also rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids that are always needed in a diet that doesn’t contain fish or seafood, and last but not least, they can help reduce inflammation. 

See? These glorious greens are so dang amazing!

How do you make brussel sprout caesar salad?

It’s this simple. Follow these steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F and live two baking sheets with parchment paper
  2. To one baking sheet add the potatoes and bread. Dust with the 3 tbsp. of olive oil and salt and pepper. Cook for around 25-30 minutes, turning them occasionally to avoid any burning
  3. To the other baking sheet add the brussel sprouts and dust with the garlic powder and umami powder.  bake for 20 minutes and turn halfway through to promote even cooking.  Watch closely to avoid burning
  4. While that bakes, prepare the dressing by adding all the ingredients to a jar and shake to combine
  5. Let the other ingredients cool, then combine everything in a large mixing bowl, drizzle with your desired amount of dressing, and dust with the parmesan cheese

That. Is. It. You can thank me later by leaving a starred review and comment below 😉

Notes

If you do not have lemon for the dressing you can use white vinegar.

My favourite vegan parm is by VioLife

You can omit the potatoes entirely if you don’t fancy them, just use less dressing when drizzling at the end.

The dressing with last 5 days in a tightly sealed jar in the fridge.
