Notes:

Are you a Brussels sprouts lover or hater?!

For us, Christmas just wouldn’t feel the same without them! So if you’re looking to give them another try or are just in need of a different (and easy!) recipe this year, than look no further! Get your knives and forks ready for some roasted Brussels sprouts with a twist!

We took a lovely bunch of festive flavours and ingredients to produce a seriously tasty and wholesome mix of roasted veggies! Yes, delicious British sprouts, which, let’s be honest, always taste sensational when slow roasted with a little oil and seasoning anyways, become part of an infusion of great flavours in this vegetable medley; apples, chestnuts, shallots and stem ginger- the foundations of this delicious dish! 

The result is beautifully roasted veggies with flavours that work in perfect harmony; a caramelised and creamy vegetable medley that could easily convert anyone into a sprout lover!

We loved it; a great combination of flavours, textures and overall satisfaction! The only modifications we’ll make during the festive season is to add a little more ginger- not because we didn’t include enough the first time around, but simply because we cannot get enough of it! 

So if you need a tasty side dish, than we’d suggest you give our Brussels sprouts a try! Impress your family and non-vegan friends; let face it, who really needs a ‘festive bird’ on the table when even your side dishes are this tasty?!  #veganchristmasrecipes

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 200ºF/400ºF. Get out a large baking tray (or roasting tin).

2. Soak and wash the sprouts. If preferred, remove any soiled outer leaves.

3. Wash, remove the core and then chop the apples into wedges.

4. Peel and roughly chop the shallots into ‘chunky’ pieces.

5. Peel and finely dice the garlic.

6. Wash the clementine, grate some zest and then juice it.

7. Remove some ginger from its syrup and finely chop it. NB: We used two small pieces.

8. Place the sprouts, apple, shallot and garlic onto the baking tray. Drizzle over the oil. Toss to coat.

9. Pour over the juice and 2 tsp ginger syrup (from the bottle of ginger). Sprinkle over a little zest (if preferred). Season it with a little salt and a few grind of black pepper to taste. Place it into the oven and roast for 30 mins, tossing the mixture at least once. Remove.

10. In the meantime, toast some walnuts in a dry frying pan (until lightly golden) and then roughly chop them (if applicable). Roughly chop the roasted (and peeled) chestnuts. Wash the parsley, remove its leaves from the stems and roughly chop them (if using).

11. Before serving, garnish with the walnuts, parsley, zest (if using) and the chestnuts. Tip: If you have any spare ‘orange zest’, or dried cranberries, sprinkle them over (just before serving) to provide an extra pop of colour and festive finish! 

 

 

 

 

Enjoy!

 

Refrigerate any leftovers in an air-tight and resealable container; reheat (if preferred) and consume within 3 days.

    1. Thanks Reeanna! Yes, so easy, especially if you delegate someone else as the official sprout cleaner- J/K! 😀 The walnuts give a nice crunchy finish, but you could use toasted pecans instead! Yay! Is this a pre-Christmas party? We hope that you do; just make sure to make extras and let us know how it turns out if you do decide to make it! 🙂

    1. Hey Chloe, thanks for the comment! Yes! It can be as healthy or as decadent as you prefer, but the joy of eating it is certainly comforting indeed! It’s a great seasonal recipe and we’re definitely making a larger portion over xmas; the sprouts were just too tasty not too. 🙂
