  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients and coat Brussels sprouts on all sides.

For the Curry Dipping Sauce:

  1. Mix together all the ingredients for the dipping sauce and place in the fridge.
  2. Chill until Brussels are ready.

For the Whipped Ricotta Dipping Sauce:

  1. Place ricotta and cream cheese in a large bowl and whip with a mixer for 3-5 minutes until light and fluffy.
  2. Add in lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and red pepper flakes.
  3. Whip once more for about 30 seconds to combine. Add the pesto, using a spoon to mix it into the ricotta.
  4. Add ricotta mixture to a serving dish and place in the fridge to cool until Brussels are ready.

Note: Dipping sauces can be stored in an air-tight container and refrigerated for up to 1 week for optimal freshness.

    How many carbs should I bolus for if I ate just the brussel sprouts and not the sauces?

    Sounds like a lot of work and ingredients for Brussels sprouts to me. Is it worth the outlay of time and money?

    • For an easier option, you can roast the Brussels and then drizzle them with balsamic vinegar when they come out of the oven, and pass on the dipping sauces.
