From The Author

In the last few years, brussels sprouts have risen to the top of the popularity chart. This is a perfect holiday side dish as the jewel tones of the pomegranate seeds add a vibrant color and the nuttiness of the hazelnuts also add a festive touch to a simple plate of vegetables. Brussels sprouts are high in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, making them a nutritious addition to your diet. A member of the cruciferous vegetable family, Brussels sprouts may reduce the risk of cancer, decrease inflammation and improve blood sugar control. They are full of fiber, and when roasted and have a nutty sweetness to them. Try roasting a double recipe’s worth and adding some to a batch of scrambled eggs for an extra boost of nutrients for breakfast.

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Trim the stems and cut the brussels sprouts in half lengthwise.
  3. On a foil-lined baking sheet, toss together the brussels sprouts, olive oil and sea salt.
  4. Place the baking sheet into the oven. Bake for 25 minutes. The Brussels sprouts will be browned and slightly crispy.
  5. Transfer the Brussels sprouts onto a serving platter and scatter the hazelnuts and pomegranate seeds onto the top of the Brussels sprouts.
