I think I just heard all children everywhere screaming at the mere mention of brussel sprouts, and ok this recipe may not be for your pickiest of eaters, but I say what better way to make those tiny green vegetables tasty than to make them into Brussel Sprout Sweet Potato Fries?
That’s right I popped them in my deep fryer and I’m not apologizing, they were delicious! A local restaurant has an appetizer like this on their menu every once in a while and the Mr. and I love it. I know it sounds a like a lot going on, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, cilantro aioli and balsamic reduction? I promise it all blends together so well. I almost didn’t get these photos taken because the Mr. was shoveling these in his mouth on Sunday faster than I could make them.
Now I know deep frying scares some people and makes you think you need to kiss your new years resolutions goodbye, but not to worry. You can totally adapt this recipe by roasting them in the oven, you could even go super healthy and make the dip with greek yogurt instead of mayo.
Or skip the dip altogether and this is a totally paleo diet friendly recipe. Another tip, you could totally cheat and use a bag of frozen sweet potato fries too. So many ways to switch this one up!
