Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Broccoli is probably one of the more popular cruciferous vegetables being touted for its health benefits… but there are numerous other ones. Brussels sprouts is a favorite around here…. and our most favorite way of preparing it is to roast it. My mother used to harvest brussels sprouts from our garden after the first frost and prepare them by boiling and serving with butter. I always liked this, but roasting takes it to a new level.

    • Thanks for the note… sounds like the pine nuts and raisins will be a good combination. My daughter is trying a recipe with shredded brussels sprouts and apples… that should be good too!
