Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Walnuts


I don’t need to remind you of my love of Brussels Sprouts. My archives are filled with them, including some of my favorites such as Brussels Sprout Ceasar Salad, Brussels Sprout Hash, and Brussels Sprout Sitr Fry.  In addition to my recipe obsession, I make them pretty much 1-2x per week. Usually this involves throwing them in the over and then consuming a while later, but once in a while I try to tweak the usual formula for something a bit more exciting. To go with the fabulous Bacon Wrapped Roast Pork Loin I made this weekend, I decided a healthy Brussels Sprout side dish was a necessary addition to the meal.

I roasted these sprouts on high heat with some coarsely chopped walnuts and tossed them with a healthy coat of garilc and olive oil. I finished them off undet the broiler for maximum crispness and seasoned with salt and pepper. Sometimes the best vegetables are the simplest. No need to dress up these delicous superpowered sprouts. Super easy, super simple and a perfect accompanyment for a tasty Valentine’s roast.

    Yum! I love brussel sprouts but they all aren’t always as crispy as I want! I will have to try the broiler!

    These look like perfection to me. I love the addition of walnuts in this. Bet it just heightens the flavour.

    I’m trying to like brussel sprouts. I eat them when offered and have had a couple of great dishes lately, but I’ve never made them myself. It’s probably time to break down and do that. This looks like a great recipe to start with because the two dishes I did like both had roasted brussels sprouts. Thanks!
