This Cajun Sweet Potato Brussels Sprout Salad is amazingly delicious plus super easy to make. Naturally vegan and gluten free.



For the Cajun Sweet Potatoes:
  • 2 big sweet potatoes
  • 4 tsp  Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt, pepper to taste
For the Brussels sprouts:
  • 2 heaping cups Brussels sprouts
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 3 Tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp maple syrup, optional
  • 1 cup onions, chopped
  • salt, pepper to taste
Optional add ons:
  • cooked quinoa
  • Tahini sauce (1/3 cup tahini, 2 tsp garlic powder, water to thin, salt, pepper to taste)


  1. Start with the sweet potatoes. Wash and peel them, cut into cubes. In a bowl, mix with the olive oil, Cajun seasoning, and season with salt and pepper. Place on sheet pan.
  2. Next prepare the other veggies: clean the used bowl for the sweet potatoes and add clean and shaved Brussels sprouts, onions, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and optional maple syrup.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Distribute all on the same sheet pan like you did with the sweet potatoes. Bake everything for around 25 minutes at 410°F.
