Spicy Breadcrumb Brussels Sprouts

These Spicy Breadcrumb Brussels Sprouts are the most delicious vegan side dish! Tossed in homemade breadcrumbs with a little kick to them.

2 slices bread



Brussels sprouts:

  • 2 lbs brussels sprouts, washed and halved
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper

Spicy breadcrumbs:

  • 2 slices of bread (I love using sourdough bread)
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/21/4 tablespoon chili oil (depending on spice tolerance)
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and add the bread to a baking sheet and toast in oven for about 10 minutes on each side or until it’s firmer/toasted through
  2. While the breadcrumbs cook, toss the brussels sprouts in oil and sea salt and pepper and add to a large baking sheet and cook in oven for about 40 minutes, flipping over the sprouts half way through
  3. Remove bread from oven once toasted and add to food processor and pulse a few times until broken up more
  4. Add in the spices and pulse again
  5. Warm a skillet with the oils and add the breadcrumbs on top and toast over medium/high heat for about 5-8 minutes, mixing around the skillet often to toast on all sides
  6. Remove breadcrumbs from heat and toss in with cooked brussels sprouts
  7. Enjoy while warm with desired main dish/any other sides!


*Store in fridge for 5 days and and reheat in oven or skillet before serving. You can also make these ahead of time for holiday/dinner parties.
