Brussel Truffle Tacos

By: Erica Payne

Serves: 2

Prep Time: 20 minutes

(Description of Recipe): This is the homemade version of my absolute favorite taco in the world from a local joint in Elon, North Carolina. To make it on the healthier side, I baked my brussels instead of frying them like the restaurant does and found it equally delicious! I found easy recipes for pickled red onions and truffle aioli that I will share in the ingredient list, which in my opinion, are arguably the best parts of this dish. I love making recipes with brussel sprouts because they’re the super veggie, packed with vitamin C that helps maintain vision and protects skin cells against sun damage and pollution (Ware, 2019).



  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Quarter all the large brussel sprouts and half the smaller sprouts. Toss them in olive oil, S & P, and minced garlic. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes or until crispy.
  3. In the meantime, make the truffle aioli following the recipe I attached above. Keep in the fridge until the brussel sprouts are ready.
  4. Sprinkle about a tablespoon of parmesan on the tortillas and microwave for about 30 seconds.
  5. When the brussels are crispy, take them out of the oven and put about 6 on each taco. Top with pickled red onions, a tablespoon of truffle aioli and red pepper flakes.
