By  |  0 Comments

One of my all time favorite vegetables is roasted brussels sprouts.  I love how they get all golden brown, slightly crispy and nutty.  They definitely put the steamed version to shame!

If you’re looking for a fun and unique way to change up those traditional roasted brussels sprouts, this is the way to go!  Enjoy!
