Brussels Sprouts

Orange Sauce


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove ends of Brussels sprouts and halve. Add to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Toss in canola oil and spread throughout the sheet. Roast for 20 minutes or until the Brussels sprouts are browned.
  • While the Brussels roast, make the orange sauce. Zest orange and set the zest aside. Then juice the oranges and add to a blender with all of the ingredients except the cornstarch and water. Blend until combined.
  • Add orange sauce to a saucepan and bring to a low simmer. While the sauce heats, make a slurry by mixing together the cornstarch and water until there are no clumps. Then pour into the sauce and continue to simmer for 3-5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Remove from heat and stir in zest.
  • In a bowl, add the roasted Brussels sprouts and the orange sauce and stir with a silicone spatula or wooden spoon until combined. Serve with white and black sesame seeds.
