Momofuku roasted brussels sprouts

leave a comment »

Made these for dinner, along with roasted butternut squash, carrots, and onions and some grilled chicken breast, seasoned with 21 Seasoning Salute. 

For breakfast, I made Indian hash browns… fried mustard seeds and curry leaves in oil, then cooked hash browns in it along with a couple of eggs. 

For the sprouts, I had to use freeze-dried cilantro instead of fresh, and I topped it with almonds instead of the original recipe’s crispy chili rice.


Momofuku Roasted Brussel Sprouts

For Brussels sprouts

  • 4 cups Brussels sprouts (about 2 pounds), trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

For topping

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Rice Krispies or other puffed rice cereal
  • 1/4 teaspoon togarashi or cayenne pepper
  • Kosher salt

For vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup Asian fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small red chile, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint

Prepare Brussels sprouts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix the Brussels sprouts in a bowl with the olive oil and salt. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly.

Prepare topping

In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil until shimmering. Add the Rice Krispies and togarashi or cayenne pepper and cook over high heat, stirring, until browned, about 30 seconds. Season with salt. Remove from heat and set aside.


Prepare vinaigrette


In a small bowl, combine the fish sauce, water, sugar, rice vinegar, lime juice, garlic and chile and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the cilantro and mint.

Assemble Brussels sprouts


Transfer the roasted Brussels Sprouts into a large bowl and toss with the vinaigrette. Just before serving, sprinkle the “Spice Krispies” on top and serve right away.

Serves 4 to 6.
