Prep Time:10 mins
Total Time:35 minutes
Yield:2 cups brussels sprouts 1x
1/2 cup gluten free panko
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
aquafaba – liquid from 1-15 0z. can of chickpeas
2 cups brussels sprouts, halved
Optional Sweet and Spicy Sauce
2 Tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey
1 Tablespoon sriracha
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
Preheat oven to 425º and line a baking sheet with parchment.
In a small bowl, whisk together panko, salt, paprika, and pepper.
In a separate bowl, pour in the liquid from the chickpeas. Using an immersion blender or hand mixer, beat until it becomes foamy and frothy. You can use a whisk if necessary, but it will take longer and your arm will get SUPER tired. *See below for pictures of this process.*
Dip brussels sprouts in the aquafaba and then toss in the breading mix. Place face down on the baking sheet and bake for 22-25 minutes, removing from the oven to flip halfway.
Remove from oven and enjoy!
For the Sauce
Add all sauce ingredients to a small mason jar and shake to combine. You can also whisk everything together in a bowl.
