Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Cranberries and Pecans

Spring is here and so are fresh veggies! Brussel Sprouts, for us here in zone 8, appear through May!  This winter veggie sometimes gets a bad wrap. Categorized by many as a stinky vegetable, the Brussel is packed with vitamins. And it sure  doesn’t have  to be the stinky veggie! We show you how to quickly make it a family fave!


Roasting them opens a whole new bag of tricks. They become the plump, wonderful morsels of sweet and savory flavor!  We took this perfect veggie and added some bling to sweeten them up! Adding pecans and dried cranberries really amps them up.


So, I will go ahead and say, you’re welcome ;)
