If you think you aren’t a fan of Brussels Sprouts I bet I can change your mind with this recipe. These are “Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Hazelnuts”! Caramelized Brussels sprouts, sweet shallots, warm tangy apples and toasted hazelnuts are a heavenly combination!
Brussels Sprouts belong to the cabbage family. They are high in Vitamin C and fiber and contain a nutrient called sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is a chemical known to have cancer preventing properties, something we can all use!
Believe it or not, when roasted, Brussels Sprouts take on an almost French fry taste and texture. Always drizzle veggies with just enough olive oil that all the vegetables are glistening but the pan isn’t swimming in oil. Toss in sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
When the sprouts and onions are browned just right I remove them from the oven and sauté apples in butter, add Hazelnuts (also called Filberts) and then toss it all together in a cast iron pan!
