Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Sriracha Aioli

Often the simplest things in life bring us the most joy. Whether it is your favorite food, reading a page turner novel or taking an afternoon nap – these are the things that bring us comfort and joy.

Lately several friends have been diagnosed with cancer and it really opens your to the meaning of life. It reminds us that we must cherish each and every day, each and every person and don’t sweat the small stuff.

The other night, hubby and I had a simple dinner – leftover turkey loaf and roasted whole Brussels sprouts with sriracha aioli. Note to self – make and post the turkey loaf soon – you will love it and it is even better the next day. I could not believe how simple the preparation for the Brussels sprouts was. Again, the simple things in life are often the best.

As Oprah teaches – live your best life!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Sriracha Aioli

1 Lb. Brussels Sprouts, trim ends only and leave whole
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350

In a baking dish add the Brussels sprouts and toss with olive oil until well coated and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes, so the Brussels are still firm. Serve with dipping sauce as a main dish or appetizer.

Sriracha Aioli

4 T. Mayonnaise
1 to 2 T. Sriracha (add more or less depending how hot you like it)

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl and let sit in refrigerator until ready to use.


  1. can't agree more, the simplest in life are always the best. Seems you enjoyed the dinner with your hubby :)

  2. This dish really looks fantastic to me. Sriracha mayo sounds awesome - I don't know why I haven't thought of making it before.

    And I echo your sentiments about the simple things....they're always the things/times that we remember.

  3. We just made roasted brussels sprouts and mushrooms last night! I wish I would have seen this sriracha aioli recipe - it would have been a great addition to our meal!

  4. great idea! totally need to try this!

  5. This sounds simple, yet sophisticated. I've recently grown to love roasted brussel sprouts - the sriracha is just a perfect added kick.

  6. I'm pretty much obsessed with brussels sprouts, but I never thought to make a dip for them! I'm definitely making these very soon. Thank you kindly for sharing.

  7. We used your Sriracha recipe last night with grilled shrimp and it was awesome. I added a little bit of lime juice to the Aioli- gives it a bit of a tang.. We just recently grilled brussel sprouts and I didn't think to add a dipping sauce- that would have made them even better!! Looking forward to the Turkey loaf recipe-- never had it before..

    Thanks for sharing!!

  8. I don't have any sriracha sauce. Would cholula hot sauce work?

    1. I don't see why it would not work! Give it a whirl and let me know how you like it. :)

  9. These are so delicious! The Sriracha aioli and sprouts go together like peanutbutter and jam!! Cyndi T.

  10. Yay, I love sprouts. This will make them so much better.

  11. I roast bs with olive oil snd minced garlic! I will try the sauce!


It simply makes me smile when I receive a new comment and I look forward to hearing from you!
