A beautiful holiday side dish, bright red pomegranate seeds make delicious crispy caramelized Brussels sprouts pop with festive flair.
Is anyone else still at square one for holiday menu planning or is it just me? I mean, helloooooo, did we not just finish planning our Thanksgiving menus? I’m here to help make your holiday menu planning a wee bit easier. With a side dish that’s so beautiful, your guests will be
saying caroling “Martha, who?”
Do you like Brussels sprouts? If the answer is no, have you tried roasting them? Many of my nutrition clients come to me saying they hate vegetables, especially Brussels sprouts. I always recommend to my clients to roast their veggies in the oven (hint: you can even roast fruits!) to bring out a delicious nutty, caramelized flavor. Brussels sprouts are transformed when you roast them. And when they’re all browned and crispy, some (or maybe just me) might even go so far to call these sprouts sexy.
During winter (and especially during the holidays), I love using pomegranate seeds. Not only are they deliciously juicy and packed with antioxidants, they’re so bright and festive, adding flair to any holiday dinner table.
