I love roasted vegetables! Especially in the winter months. They are the perfect side dish this time of the year – warm and filling.
Enter brussels sprouts and garlic. This side dish is full of flavor and nutrition. Add bacon to the mix and you have a match made in heaven. Brussels sprouts are tiny packages full of nutrition, high in anti-oxidants, potassium, calcium, iron, vitamin C, folate and they are an excellent source of dietary fiber.
You can easily vary the recipe by sprinkling the brussels sprouts with lemon juice, balsamic vinegar or apple cider vinegar. They also taste delicious with pine nuts, which you can sprinkle on top when serving.
- 1½ lbs brussel sprouts
- 4 medium cloves garlic, minced
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
