Roasted brussels with balsamic glaze & toasted pine nuts
"SMALL CHEER AND GREAT WELCOME MAKE A MERRY FEAST"
There is nothing like roasted veggies and nuts at this time of year. To me they make up the perfect side dish to any festive holiday meal.
Once you get the hang of veggie roasting, you too will see that with just a few ingredients and a little time, you can create delicious, warming, and nutrient dense additions to any meal.
- Brussels sprouts are part of the brassica family, closely related to cabbage, kale and mustard greens, known for their highly medicinal properties.
- Brussels are very high in fiber, vegetable protein, and alpha-lipoid acid – an antioxidant that has been show to support insulin and blood sugar stabilization.
- Brussels are also very high in vitamin K, making them great for bone health an calcium absorption.
- Brussels sprouts are one of the best veggie sources for omega-3 fatty acids.
Warm and crispy roasted brussels are one of my favorite parts of any Thanksgiving feast.
