Eating healthy during the holidays can be tough. That's why we've asked Registered/Certified Dietitian Nutritionist Erin Burch of Erin Burch Nutrition, to share some recipes with us that are healthy and delicious. This Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe is sure to be a winner.
I have no idea why Brussels sprouts are such a hated vegetable. Just three sprouts provide you with 120% daily value of vitamin C, 3 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein. The rich, caramelized flavor of these roasted Brussels sprouts, will likely earn them, favorite holiday side dish.
The addition of cranberry and orange gives this dish a festive flare, but it's really a recipe you can use anytime.
This is one of the best roasted Brussels sprouts recipes I've tried. It just might be the one that wins over the skeptics.
