Garam Masala Brussel Sprouts [Vegan]

Cooking Time




  • 2 cups whole frozen brussels sprouts
  • 2 teaspoon avocado oil (or oil of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon asofoetida (also known as hing)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 - 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 1 - 1 1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat for about a minute to warm it.
  2. Add asofoetida, garlic powder, cumin powder, black pepper, and cayenne powder and mix spices with oil using a spatula or wooden spoon. Cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes, until spices are cooked and fragrant.
  3. Add brussels sprouts to pan toss with spices until everything is evenly coated.
  4. Sauté for about 5-7 minutes over medium heat, until sprouts are cooked through and beginning to brown. Make sure to keep stirring and tossing the sprouts continuously.
  5. Turn the heat down to low and add garam masala powder and sea salt. Toss with sprouts continuously for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Turn stove off and let sprouts sit for an additional 2-3 minutes (for a little extra char!) before serving.
