Smashed BRUSSELS Sprouts with a HOt Spicy Chili Sauce

Smashed Brussels sprouts with a spicy chili garlic oil, doesn’t that sound amazing! Hashtag the new  #foodtrend#smashedbrusselsprouts.

Who doesn’t love a good food trend? I love this one, because it gets my grandkids to eat more vegetables. Let me add that you can add whatever sauce or topping you would like, my family love spicy food, me so much, but I adjusted the heat on these. Hey, mama has to eat too. You could add parmesan cheese, garlic butter sauce or just a bit cracked black pepper and sea salt. Make it your own and have fun with the TikTok food trend. I wonder what will be the next vegetable we see smashed? Onions, perhaps, whatever it is, remember to always Set the Table with Love.
