Hello luvs,

We’ve been trying to play around with some more savory style recipes for you to enjoy. We all know we love desserts or a baked treat but promise we eat more than just those things.

Get ready for a new way to enjoy soft and tasty breadsticks made with veggies.

Plantain brussel sprouts breadsticks that are grain and gluten free.

Definitely not your average breadstick.  And we are okay with that. We think you will be too.

Think a little upscale. A little fancy. A different way to enjoy breadsticks.

We hope you like them as much as we did. Serve with hummus, guacamole or even a cheese sauce. All would be delicious.

Ever since making our broccoli breadsticks we had a feeling one day of trying something new and a little different with that recipe.

We thought taking our beloved grain-free plantain bread and blending  it with a veggie would create a tasty savory bread.

    MMM definitely will have to try this!! You ladies are culinary geniuses! Although I love caramelized, roasted brussels sprouts, I have a soft spot for them simply steamed (and sprawled all over my instagram) until vibrant green, either plain, or topped with coconut oil or tahini-yum! (can you spot the purelytwins influence?? haha)

    I love how you girls are so creative with food and eat what makes YOU and your body feel awesome, instead of what others say to eat. I still struggle with that. You’re my inspiration to be purely me!

  8. Scarlett says:

    Hello! I love Brussels sprouts and I love plantains and to combine them like this, is pure genious! I can’t wait to try this.

    Question: should one use a green unripe plantain or semi ripe yellow/green (but not brown)?

  9. Katie says:

    I have these in the oven right now…hiding the evidence from my fiance so he doesn’t know what I put in them :) Have you tried freezing these or can you speak to whether they reheat well? Thank you!
