Charred Brussels Sprouts with Za’atar & Date Syrup

Charred Brussels Sprouts with Za'atar & Date Syrup recipe served.

CHARRED BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH ZA’ATAR AND DATE SYRUP

This is my new favorite way to make Brussels sprouts! They are cooked in a cast iron skillet – way faster than roasting them in an oven and charred to perfection. Thanks to my dad @yummyyatrasdad for suggesting za’atar!

The date syrup works beautifully here, balancing the sweet and savory. The pomegranate arils add a wonderful texture and flavor pop. The best part – it is ready in under 45 minutes!
