Vegan Buffalo Brussels Sprouts

Buffalo Brussel Sprouts (paleo, vegan)

I always accidentally type brussel sprouts instead of brussels sprouts, anyone else? I definitely always say brussel sprouts, I think that double s back to back is tricky to say! Anyways, these vegan buffalo brussels sprouts are perfectly spicy and pair with a lot of different meals. I like to pair with chicken or salmon! I keep the flavor of the protein simple so that way it doesn’t mess with the flavor of these brussels sprouts.

The hot honey is a little spicy but not too spicy. You can use regular honey if you aren’t into the spice though! It’s a fun way to elevate your cheese board or appetizer game.
