Crispy Brussels Sprouts Leaves with Sweet and Spicy Hemp Hearts Bring Texture to the Table

Hot, crispy sprout leaves get a little something extra from a dusting of spicy-sweet hemp heart seeds

This simple, pretty recipe roasts just the leaves of Brussels sprouts for a crispy, delicious side. It’s topped with pre-made sweet and spicy hemp hearts for extra flavor and nutrition. Removing leaves takes a bit of time but it’s worth it; if you’re just not up to it you could use small Brussels sprouts, quartered. Otherwise, prep the leaves the night before cooking, then roast immediately before serving — they’re best hot, right out of the oven. As a shortcut, we call for pre-flavored sweet and spicy hemp heart seeds from the Humming Hemp brand but you can also purchase neutral-flavored seeds and add ground Aleppo pepper and a pinch of brown sugar to create a custom flavor blend.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. large Brussels sprouts
  • 2–3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 oz. Humming Hemp Honey Aleppo Hemp Hearts
  • 1 oz. Humming Hemp Spicy Hemp Hearts

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut stem from one Brussels sprout, and remove loose leaves. Transfer to large bowl. Continue cutting stem and peeling off leaves until you get to small center core. Repeat with remaining Brussels sprouts. (Reserve center cores for roasting or shredding for salads.)
  2. Drizzle leaves with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Mix with your hands, and spread leaves evenly onto two large rimmed baking sheets. Roast until leaves are crispy and golden, 10–12 minutes, stirring several times during cooking to prevent leaves at edges of pan from burning.
  3. Remove from oven. Transfer to serving platter, and sprinkle with hemp hearts. Toss gently to mix, season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
