Vegan Cheesy Garlicky Sautéed Brussels Sprouts a.k.a. Nobody Said Vegans Couldn’t Be Cheesy!

Vegan Cheesy Garlicky Sautéed Brussels Sprouts a.k.a. Nobody Said Vegans Couldn’t Be Cheesy!

Vegan cheesy garlicky sautéed Brussels sprouts, anyone?

Okay, so this is probably one of the simplest recipes I meal prepped this weekend, but they are so good that I HAD to share.

The STAR ingredient in this recipe is NUTRITIONAL YEAST: a great source of plant-based protein & vitamin B12 that adds a cheesy & nutty flavour to recipes (without the dairy!).

  • Nutritional yeast also has antiviral & antibacterial properties.
  • It promotes healthy skin, hair & nails (It contains antioxidants, such as selenium).
  • It’s great for digestion.
  • It also boosts the immune system.
  • It contains highly absorbable amounts of nucleotides (the building blocks of DNA & RNA), which makes it great for promoting cellular repair & regeneration.
  • 15-40% of people are deficient in B-vitamins, which can lead to deep & ongoing fatigue, brain fog, irritability, depression & even insomnia (because B-vitamins play a crucial role in melatonin production). The body largely depends on B6 to make the hormone serotonin, which affects mood & feelings of happiness.  If you improve your vitamin B intake (BY EATING THE YEAST BABY), you will sleep better, balance your hormones & increase your energy levels, focus, clarity & overall mental health & function.
  • Not only does it contain selenium, B-vitamins (folate, thiamine, B12 & B6, but it also contains iron & zinc!

All you need to make these babies is 5 ingredients, a skillet & just under 10 minutes!

BTW: In case you were wondering, brussels sprouts are an amazing source of fibre, protein (believe it or not!), vitamin C + antioxidants! They are an excellent source of vitamin K, as well as folate, manganese, B6, copper, vitamin B1, potassium, phosphorus & omega-3 fatty acids! 

Sautéing these babies gives them the perfect amount of char & leaves them crispy & crunchy! 

My loves, YOU WILL NEED:

  • About 1/2lb. of Brussels sprouts, rinsed, cleaned & halved;
  • 2 to 3 tbsp. of nutritional yeast;
  • 1 tbsp. of dried minced onion;
  • 1 tsp. of garlic powder;
  • Sea salt & black pepper for seasoning;
  • Avocado or coconut oil cooking spray;

HOW-TO?

  • Add your Brussels to a large mixing bowl & season with the rest of the ingredients. Toss to combine & coat them entirely in the spice mix!

  • Once heated, add your seasoned Brussels. Lower the heat to medium & sauté for about 7-9 minutes, until they are browned, charred, cooked through but still crispy & crunchy!
  • DEVOUR!
