Spotlight on Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are amazing! If you aren’t big into vegetables, try brussels sprouts roasted in oil. You’ll be in love.

Brussels sprouts are packed with vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins K, C, E and A, manganese, iron and omega 3’s, as well as plant phytonutrients which can help combat several kinds of cancer, all while being delicious! Here’s a simple recipe…

Super Easy Roasted Sprouts

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. To roast them, use as many or as little brussels sprouts as you want (I usually use a cup or so). Spread them in one layer on a pan. Drizzle a generous amount of olive oil, then sprinkle some salt, pepper and dried rosemary (optional). Put em in the oven and cook for about 35 minutes. I’d recommend checking on them after 30 minutes, they can get pretty easily burned. When you take them out, they should look similar to this…

Mmmmmmmmm.

They’re a nutrient-dense, filling vegan treat to either eat on the side or have as a meal!
