SO HOW'D IT GO?

These were amazing!! I didn't have tempeh so I chopped up a couple boca burgers. I'm definitely making this again!

This is a wonderful recipe! I minced the garlic into the sauce before baking the sprouts. I didn't add the tempeh, onion, or pecan, just had the sprouts. Amazing! will definately try it again with the complete recipe! Thanks :)

These are bitchin'!

I made these last night while watching X-Men, and I was more interested in tasting them than watching Wolverine (a HUGE accomplishment).

I didn't have tempeh so I chopped up a couple Gardein chik'n breasts and threw them in there, and used a white onion instead of a red one and gobbled them up.  There were barely any left for my boyfriend to taste!  I will surely be making these again!  I might increase the amounts of the sauce ingredients so the sprouts have a bit more coating.

I'm going to try this next time I get brussels!

Interesting, but fresh brussels are so good simply sauteed, perhaps with a squeeze of lemon, that I hesitate to add so many other flavors.  The sprouts might up and disappear!

Yup! Most veggies are good simply sauteed...
But sometimes it's nice to add variety of flavors to a recipe as well :-)
