Guys, there are only 16 days until Christmas. SIXTEEN. One-six. Can someone please explain to me how this has happened? Good grief. Anyway, I’m here with a new Christmassy recipe, hoorah!
If you’re not a fan of sprouts (hey, they’re not for everyone), I’m about to change that. Are you ready? Good. These Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate are amazing. The sweetness of the pomegranate and the tang of the lime really take them up a notch, and they don’t taste as ‘sprouty’ (for want of a better word). I’m going to test them on my brother when I go home for Christmas. He doesn’t eat anything green, so it’ll be an interesting test..!
The recipe is really easy, it requires only 6 ingredients, and the best part is it looks fancy schmancy, but it’s really not. If you’re thinking of making sprouts as a side for your Christmas dinner (and to be frank, why ever would you not?!), give these babies a go, they’ll be great.
So, on with the roasted brussels sprouts…[lt_recipe name=”Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate” prep_time=”5M” cook_time=”20M” total_time=”25M” summary=”This recipe is vegan-friendly and gluten free!” print=”yes” image=”http://healthylivingabby.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Beautiful-Sprouts-1.jpg” ingredients=”1 250g bag of brussels sprouts;1 80g punnet of pomegranate seeds;1 tsp apple cider vinegar;1 tbsp olive oil;Juice of 1 lime;Cracked black pepper to taste” ];Preheat your oven to 200C;Prep your brussel sprouts: cut the stem as you normally would, slice the sprouts in half, then wash them;Add the sprouts to a bowl, along with the apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and cracked black pepper.;Toss until the sprouts are evenly covered, then transfer to a baking tray and place in centre of the oven for approximately 20 minutes.;Once they’re done, remove them from the oven and add the pomegranate seeds and lime juice.;Mix together, then decant into your bowl of choice.;Serve immediately and enjoy![/lt_recipe]
