Vegan Roasted Dijon Brussels
Hello & Happy Wednesday!!
If there is a veggie I love thru and thru, it’s brussels sprouts! Surprisingly, I didn’t get to know and love this fab veggie until about 2009. All those years gone to waste without this fab veggie. (tears) What’s fab about this veggie is that it’s a true blank canvas. You can enjoy simply roasted or you can amp up that flavor factor and pair them with the perf sauce.
One of my personal favorite sauces, is all things dijon. It works seamlessly in salad dressings, countless marinades, and makes the best cashew cream sauce to enjoy brussels with!!
What’s fab about this sauce, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, features minimal ingredients, protein packed, cheesy, can be easily made in bulk, can be used for other dishes, perf for any season, can easily be made in bulk, you can cook the onions/garlic in white wine for even more of a flavor boost, and you just can’t go wrong with this dish!
If you love more ways to love brussles, you’re going to love these new vegan Roasted Dijon Brussles!!
