Ingredients & Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Asian Brussels sprouts. Scroll down to the recipe card for full ingredients list and instructions.
Use fresh Brussels sprouts for best results. Wash them, trim them and dry them. I like to keep some of them whole and some of them cut in half.
Coconut aminos is the soy free and gluten free version of soy sauce. It adds a great teriyaki inspired flavor. Big Tree Farms carries great Whole30 approved coconut aminos. Feel free to use soy sauce if not gluten free.
Sriracha sauce adds the heat! I use and love Yellowbird sriracha, which is Whole30 friendly and Paleo. For a more mild flavor, use less sriracha or omit entirely.
A little olive oil helps the Brussels become extra crispy while roasting. Avocado oil may be substituted.
Minced garlic complements the coconut aminos well. It really helps bring out the Asian inspired flavor.
Ground pepper adds a subtle flavor.
Please note, there is no salt added in this recipe. Coconut aminos naturally has a salty flavor, so there is no need to add more salt.
