Brussels Sprouts Eggplant Curry

Whole30 compliant Brussels Sprouts Eggplant Curry recipe. A combination of eggplants, brussels sprouts, apple and spices make this vegetable curry special. It comes together in no time, and is rich, creamy and mildly spicy (you can make it as spicy or mild as you want). Great served with rice (use cauliflower rice for Whole30).

I love the basics and ratios of this recipe. I make it all the time using the brussel sprouts and apple, but substituting other veggies like green beans, squash, and sweet potato, when I don't have eggplant on hand. Delish. People always compliment me when I bring it to a table. Thx.

Brussels sprouts are so healthy, but unfortunately I'm the only one in the family who likes the taste. But we all love curries, so this might be a great way to get Brussels sprouts to the dinner table. Jus pinned it!

I'm doing my 1st round of Whole30. Made this curry for dinner yesterday. Like how creamy and nourishing it turned out. Great recipe for curry lovers!

Love the colors on this dish. This would make a unique side dish for the upcoming holidays - something different than the standard roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon. - Julie

good flavor sauce

The flavor from the sauce was excellent. I don't love eggplant, so I think next time I might try replacing it with tofu, squash or maybe chicken, but definitely a good recipe.

It sounds like you have a new favorite sauce! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I think all the replacements you listed should work ;) - Alena
