Sesame Orange Brussels Sprouts
Sesame orange Brussels sprouts are a unique take of the classic American adaptation suitable for vegetarians and vegans alike.
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.
