Pub-Style BARBACOA Brussel Sprouts (Vegan Option) 

You won’t believe it’s not bacon!  In this twist on everyone’s favorite pub side dish, roasted brussel sprouts, the naturally craboo wood-fired habanero peppers of the Smoked Belizean Barbacoa perform amazing taste bud trickery in this 20 minute recipe.  Slithers of tangy sundried tomatoes not only give these little babies a punch but provide a sneaky optical illusion.  These little morsels are just as tasty with no parmesan for our vegan friends. 
PREP TIME:  10 Minutes
TOTAL COOK TIME:  10 Minutes


Tip of the Recipe!  To make perfect onion strips, cut onion in half lengthwise and place flat portion on cutting board, then slice away to create repeatedly, perfect half-moon strips.

  • Trim, Wash & Halve Brussel Sprouts (lengthwise)
  • Heat 2 TBSP EVOO over medium high flame for about 1 minute in skillet or sauce pan (preferable at least 12” surface area so each of those little sprouts have room for some toasty sides)
  • Add Brussel Sprouts & sear 5 minutes, tossing as needed to prevent sticking


  • Halve Onion (lengthwise) & slice into roughly 1/4” strips
  • Slice Sundried Tomatoes into 1/4” strips
  • Mix Mustard with 2 TBSP Maya Mike Belizean Barbacoa (Original “White” Label) 2 & TSP Maya Mike Belizean Barbacoa (Smoked “Red” Label)


  • Add Onions to pan of Brussels & caramelize about 2 minutes
  • Pour Mustard/Barbacoa mixture over Brussel Sprouts & Onions then stir
  • Remove from heat
  • Cover & let rest for 1-2 minutes


  • Plate & Sprinkle with Shaved Parmigiano Reggiano, Salt & Pepper (as desired)

Hearty and delicious – this recipe is garden fresh yet has a rich depth bound by proteiny quinoa and complex smoky Barbacoa.  Can be whipped up in way under an hour, but tastes as if it’s been simmering all day long.  The rotating texture of vegetables from cooked to blanched to raw, hits the spot all year long!
