If you follow me on Instagram you know how much I LOVE brussels. I remember when this love affair started. Back in 2012 I moved back home with my mom to shorten my commute to the hospital for work. Pinterest had just gotten big around that time and became my go-to for recipes. I remember one evening I found a recipe with chicken, brussels sprouts, apples, and sweet potatoes. I had never made a dish like this before. We didn’t grow up eating veggies. My mom didn’t like them so she never really cooked them for us. When I went away to college I started incorporating more veggies into my diet, but brussels sprouts weren’t one of them. The chicken, brussels sprouts, apples, and sweet potato Pinterest recipe sounded delish so I gave it a try! From then on, I became obsessed with brussels sprouts. I found myself eating them multiple times a week…actually multiple times a day. I haven’t really changed up my go- to recipe since then. I like to keep my recipe simple– that way you can add the brussels to different dishes or top them with sriracha, hummus, etc.
I love this brussels sprouts recipe because it’s so easy to make. It requires minimal ingredients and can be thrown together in no time. I usually roast up a big batch of these at the beginning of the week to have for lunch with a salad or omelette or with some chicken for dinner. Sometimes I even eat them cold right out of the fridge! If they get a little soggy from sitting in the fridge for a few days I just throw them in the cast iron skillet on the stove top for a few minutes and they become nice and crispy again!
