Stuffed Brussels Sprouts with Creamy Peanut Miso Dip: The best you can do with Brussels sprouts. Fantastic finger food recipe for any occasion.
I made these stuffed Brussels sprouts with creamy peanut miso dip to prove my husband who hates Brussels sprouts that they can be delicious. I totally won. He loved them! It’s so incredible that we keep saying that we don’t like things just because we don’t know how to make the best out of them! For many years I thought that I don’t like cauliflower but it came out I just don’t like cauliflower boiled in water, which is not surprising as there is not much taste left of it after boiling. There is so much more than just boring boiled cauliflower! I’ve recently made a fantastic vegan cauliflower stew and it’s one of my favorites at the moment.
So, Brussels sprouts haters, you have a chance to change the way you think about Brussels sprouts right now. You will be addicted to these savory halves filled with cheesy stuffing and topped with parmesan. Dip them in peanut miso dip and you’ll get the most out of them! Serve them for parties as finger food and enjoy receiving compliments from your guests. They will love them, I promise.
These little boats have everything an ideal dish has: a creamy stuffing with cheese and chives, a little crunch from parmesan, chewy Brussel sprouts’ shells, a nice salty umami taste of miso which is enhanced by parmesan, a vibrant sourness of lime, a pleasant sweet touch of peanuts, a bit of bitterness and astringency from Brussels sprouts and a pungent hint of chili oil… A perfect balance of textures, tastes and temperatures. It’s no wonder we ate them all in minutes and I made a second batch on the next day. This recipe will make you love Brussels sprouts even if you think you hate them.
It’s truly wonderful how cooking methods can make you love or hate certain food. It’s all about experimenting, being creative and combining things. Please, don’t boil your Brussels sprouts in water ever again. And cauliflower. Let them be stars and give them a chance to become one of your favorite vegetables by treating them right! Here is a recipe for my Stuffed Brussels Sprouts with Creamy Peanut Miso Dip. It takes a while to make, but I assure you, it’s worth every minute!
