Caesar Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe, a new twist on an old favorite, tastes simply amazing! This side dish is simple, light, and spectacularly delicious.
CAESAR ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS RECIPE
This recipe is modeled after a classic Caesar Salad. However, instead of Romaine, I used roasted Brussels sprouts.
WHY IS CALL IT CAESAR?
Caesar salad isn’t actually named after Julius Caesar. However, it is named after a man. Apparently, Caesar Cardini developed the salad in Tijuana in 1924. He called it Aviator’s salad. It became so popular they started calling it Caesar Salad.
HOW TO MAKE CAESAR BRUSSELS SPROUTS
Preparing this side dish is very simple. It has three components to make and assemble. You have to roast the Brussels Sprouts, make the dressing, and put it together.
First, I halved the brussels sprouts and roasted them until brown and crispy. They have a delicious caramelized flavor for the base of the salad.
I finished this Brussels Sprouts salad with Parmesan, capers, and breadcrumbs.
INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTIONS
- Miso paste – Miso paste is a thick paste that is deeply savory, with toasty, salty-sweet richness. You can purchase Miso Paste here. If you don’t have miso paste and don’t want to buy any, you can substitute soy sauce. Soy sauce will give you the salty flavor, but not the creamy texture that miso offers.
- Parmesan cheese – I highly recommend using real Parmesan cheese not the powdery kind in the jar.
- Capers – Capers give a burst of flavor to this recipe. You can omit them if you prefer.
- Whole-grain mustard – You can sub stone-ground mustard for whole-grain mustard. (But don’t use the yellow mustard.)
