I just adore brussels sprouts. They are one of my favorite vegetables and a staple during the fall months. They are great in this Brussels Sprout Apple Salad and this Vegan Brussel Sprout Fried Rice is a family favorite dinner recipe.
what you need to make the spaghetti
You only need a few simple ingredients to make this spaghetti with brussels sprouts.
- Brussels Sprouts- Finely shredded brussels sprouts bulk up the spaghetti. My toddler doesn’t even notice the shredded brussels sprouts in the pasta! You can shred the brussels sprout with a food processor or by hand. You can even buy pre-shredded brussels sprouts at the grocery store. Trader Joe’s sells them and makes this pasta recipe even easier!
- Olive Oil- To cook the brussels sprouts, we need some olive oil. The oil will also help to break down the vegetables.
- Garlic– Fresh garlic adds an extra layer of flavor to the pasta. We infuse the olive oil with the garlic before adding in the brussels sprouts.
- Spaghetti- For this brussels sprouts pasta recipe, I love using spaghetti because the long shape is the perfect vehicle for the brussels sprouts.
- Vegan Parmesan- Adding a little bit of vegan parmesan takes this pasta to the next level. The cheese pairs perfectly with the brussels sprouts and spaghetti.
- Pasta Water- Adding a little bit of the pasta cooking water will bring all the ingredients together.
