Servings: 5

• 2.5 lbs. fresh Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed and cut in half or quarters if larger sprouts
• 1 Tbsp avocado oil or olive oil
• 2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
• 2 inches fresh ginger, grated
• 1 tsp chili flakes (optional)
• 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce or Bragg’s liquid aminos
• 1 Tbsp raw honey
• 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
• 1 tsp gluten free flour
• 1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds

• Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, then add garlic, ginger and chili flakes. Sauté for 1 minute, just until fragrant, then stir in the sprouts and stir-fry until tender and browned at the edges (about 5-7 minutes).
• Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, honey, lemon, gluten free flour and sesame seeds.
• Pour the soy mixture over the Brussels sprouts in the hot pan, and cook for 2 more minutes or so, until a thick sauce is formed.
