For the pasta:
  • 16 ounces fresh Brussels sprouts , ends trimmed and halved
  • Gluten-free coconut oil/olive oil spray
  • Kosher or fine sea salt , to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper , to taste
  • 12 ounces gluten-free fettuccine noodles (or pad Thai noodles)
  • ½ - 1 cup capers , to taste
  • 1 cup shelled pistachios
  • Parmesan cheese (or vegan Parmesan), for garnish
For the tahini sauce:
  • ½ cup vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Place Brussels sprouts on a baking sheet, spray with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, tossing occasionally.
  3. Cook pasta according to package directions. (Note: I like to add olive oil and salt to the water to keep the noodles from sticking together.)
  4. Blend all sauce ingredients together in a food processor/blender.
  5. Drain pasta, add it back to the pot and toss it with the sauce.
  6. Add the Brussels sprouts and capers to the pot and stir. Serve the pasta in bowls and top with pistachios and Parmesan cheese.
