Here's our recipe of the week! Hate brussel sprouts? Yeah, me too, but the grapes help with that :) LOL!
I figure any way of getting in some awesome greens like Brussel Sprouts will be well worth it (veggies are always the hardest to get in, at least for me).
Total Time: 35 min.
Prep Time: 5 min.
Cooking Time: 30 min
Yield: 2 servings
2 cups Brussels sprouts, cut in half (about 6 oz.)
1 cup red grapes
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Sea salt and ground black pepper (to taste; optional)
1 Tbsp. sliced raw almonds (for garnish; optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375°
2. Combine Brussles sprouts, grapes and oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper if desired; mix well.
3. Arrange Brussels sprouts mixture with Brussels sprouts cut side down, on metal baking sheet.
4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until Brussels sprouts are golden brown on the cut side. Stir; continue baking for 10 to 15 additional minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork.
5. Top with sliced almonds (if desired).
