How To Make Brussels Sprouts With Mustard Sauce
This recipe is very simple, made with a handful of low-carb, simple ingredients.
- Brussels Sprouts – Brussels Sprouts are one of the low-carb vegetables.
- French Dijon mustard. I use the authentic French Maille mustard. I highly recommend this one as it is strong and spicy. The American Dijon mustard is sweet and won’t create the same delicious flavors.
- Apple cider vinegar. It is a great way to remove the bitterness of Brussels Sprouts while adding a balance of flavors to the dish. My mum adds a LOT. French love their Brussels Sprouts a bit more acid. She could add up to 3 tablespoons. I am only using one of the kids who won’t eat.
- Olive oil. Any vegetable oil works well, but olive oil is a very healthy oil.
- Shallots. The secret of a delicious mustard sauce is shallots! Really, that makes the whole difference.
- Sugar-free maple syrup. This is optional, but it had a lovely sweet touch to the dish.
- Cream – cream is generally keto-friendly. You can also use coconut cream if vegan.
- Xanthan gum
- Vegetable stock. I used reduced salt vegetable stock in this recipe. Any stock works well. Feel free to use your favorite.
Roasting The Brussels Sprouts
Start by slicing the Brussels sprouts in halves and removing the outer leaves. You can use them to make Brussels Sprouts chips.
Halving the sprouts allows the mustard sauce to go inside them and enhances their flavor. Learn how to cut Brussels Sprouts the right way.
Place all the sliced Brussels sprouts on a large baking tray and season them.
You can also season the Brussels sprouts in a bowl, split the batch into two trays, and roast them on two different levels in the oven.
Bake them for 25 minutes at 400°F (200°C).

To make this creamy dijon Mustard sauce, start by frying minced shallots with olive oil in a large saucepan.

Bring the sauce to a light boil while whisking.
Reduce to low heat when it starts to boil and let it simmer for 5 to 6 minutes while stirring regularly.

Place the tray back in the oven for another 10 to 12 minutes for the sauce to thicken.
Serve the Brussels Sprouts with Mustard Sauce immediately as a side dish to your favorite mains.
This is also the perfect side dish to any grilled meat, a perfectly cooked steak, or Thanksgiving turkey. If you love your Brussels sprouts, cheesy, I recommend adding 1 cup of grated cheese into the sauce!
Another idea is to add fried bacon bites into the roasted sprouts for extra flavor.
