OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My last Brussel Sprouts recipe got 80 likes –thank you all!!!  So, I decided to share another recipe.  This is another variation on the roasted brussel sprouts.  Mushrooms pair up with the sprouts to give it a woodier, heartier taste!  I used frozen and canned ingredients but if possible please use the fresh ingredients (when in season) and it will taste really good.

Ingredients:

16oz bag of frozen, thawed, dried and sliced in half.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Cranberries and Almonds

Welcome Fall !!!!! On the first day of the best season of the year this is my recipe to you all.  Whether you use fresh or frozen, for a weeknight side dish or a holiday dish, roasted brussel sprouts with sweet/tart berries and nutty rich almonds will become a standard go to.  Try it this season and the best part is that it is super easy !

Ingredients:

1 tbsp of Olive oil

1 lb of brussel sprouts

salt and pepper to taste

chopped almonds and cranberries.  Walnuts and golden raisins would work too.  Please add much as your family likes.

Method:

Preheat oven to 375F

Toss the sprouts in oil and salt and pepper.

Roasted till the brussel sprouts are golden brown, and some of the outer leaves are crispy, about 40 mins. ( temp will change according to your oven’s power)

While the brussel sprouts roast chop up your nuts and berries.

Once the brussel sprouts are done, remove them from the oven and immediately toss in the nuts and dried fruit.  Residual heat will toast the nuts and soften the fruit.

Serve warm !
