A super easy Brussels sprout side dish that’s gluten free and vegan. The key to perfect sprouts is not to over cook them or they become stinky and mushy. That being said, in this dish the sprouts come out lightly tender. If you like them more tender, you can drop them into hot water for 2 minutes and drain before you roast them. You can also garnish these with chopped parsley leaves and a sprinkle of vegan or dairy Parmesan.
