Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes

Roasted vegetables are a staple in my house, I will almost always have some form of roasted vegetable in my fridge at all times.They are healthy, easy to make and versatile. You can eat them as a side with anything or just as a healthy snack. This recipe is so simple and full of flavour. It will also make a quick and delicious side dish for Thanksgiving. Feel free to top with Parmesan cheese before serving.

Instructions:

  • 3 cups brussel sprouts, trimmed
  • 2 cups sweet potato, chopped into chunks
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • pinch red pepper flakes

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 F

Trim the stems of the brussel sprouts and remove any yellow or tough leaves. Cut the larger sprouts in half

On a lined roasting pan, toss the brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes and whole garlic cloves with the olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.

Bake for 20-25  minutes, until sweet potatoes are cooked through and both vegetables are slightly browned.

Enjoy!
