Mango Brussels Sprouts

September 23, 2020

Mango and brussels sprouts make an amazing sweet and salty side dish!  Brussels sprouts just scream fall and this Mango Brussels Sprouts dish makes the flavors sing in a perfect harmony together!

Our friend Cass Polzin was so kind to share this recipe with us. Follow her on Instagram at @cassipolzin for more and check out her Medium article about the necessity of diversity in startups.  

The brussels sprouts are cooked with a little olive oil, red wine vinegar, onion, garlic and chili powders, salt and pepper. This alone would be the perfect side dish for fall, but Cass took a step further and added in some chopped Jali Fruit Co. dried mangoes, toasted almonds and cotija cheese.

This recipe comes together super fast so you can add it to your weekly roundup right away! Go ahead and try it for yourself and let us know what you thought at @jalifruitco. 🙂
