Looking for a vegetable appetizer to bring to your next party, then we have you covered with these grilled brussel sprouts.
These grilled brussel sprouts are one of our favorite grilled veggies for Summer.
I have a confession my friends… This Summer, I kind of upped and walked away from my mom kitchen duties and kept the cooking to an absolute minimum. I mean really, we may have even had popsicles for dinner once or twice. Ooops.
In any case, I did everything in my power to not spend more than 5 minutes in the kitchen prepping and then it was onto the grill. That of course also applies to parties and get togethers!
Yep, we still were able to spend lots of great time with friends, but I was doing cannon balls rather than prepping and congregating around the kitchen. One of my all time favorite appetizers that are both easy and absolutely delicious are my grilled brussel sprouts. They are so easy to make and are so tasty, you’re going to wonder why you have not been making these all the time.
Grilling Vegetables are one our absolute favorite thing EVER and we look forward to firing up the grill every Summer.
What you Need for Grilled Brussel Sprouts
- 6-8 Brussel Sprouts
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- garlic powder
How to Grill Brussel Sprouts
Depending on the size of your sprouts, cut them in half or even quarter them.
In a bowl, mix in the soy sauce, pinch of pepper and garlic powder. Toss the brussel sprouts in the mixture and leave to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
The soy sauce provides more than enough sodium, but in the case you do not have soy sauce, then another simple marinade is balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Preheat grill to medium high heat till you have a hot grill
Grill the Brussel Sprouts for approximately 15 minutes on each side.
Here is the key, although you are going to get these great grill marks, and think they are done, they are not. Brussel sprouts are hard and need to be softened, so the longer you can keep them on the grill the better.
Close the lid on the grill when cooking the sprouts. It will steam the vegetables and soften them. Trust me, you want them to have a roasted crisp outside.
We are fan of cooking brussel sprouts on the grill. If skewers are more your thing, you will want to use metal skewers because brussel sprouts are hard and metal skewers are easier to get through.
Once you’ve pulled them off the grill, add toothpicks to the brussel sprout. You can even add a pinch of sea salt. They are all kinds of delicious!
