Crispy Curried Brussel Sprouts

Who doesn’t love brussel sprouts when covered in delicious spices and sauces? I love these easy crispy curried brussel sprouts, perfect for meal prep or whenever you feel like it! These use curry powder, garlic, and red chili powder for the perfect savory, spicy flavors. I love plating the Brussels on top of a thick, cold layer of greek yogurt to cool it down a bit. This is, of course, optional. Omit the yogurt if you’re doing a Whole30. These are perfectly crispy yet tender, and my go-to for a busy week. Let me know how you like it by leaving a comment below. Enjoy!
