nutty roasted brussel sprouts

Wondering what you can contribute to Thanksgiving dinner? Well, look no further and give thanks for this super easy and incredibly delicious recipe.

Seriously nutty, this roasted brussel sprout dish not only has pecans but also the cheesy nuttiness of nutritional yeast which is high in Vitamin B and makes this vegan dish complete with protein!

In case you haven’t had it before, nutritional yeast is the bom yum sauce! You can add it to a host of other foods to make them savory and more vitamin packed with amino acids for you. I personally like it on my popcorn with a dash of cayenne and it really makes my veggie stir fry pop with flavor. It’s golden yellow in color, you can find it in the bulk section of most every natural foods store, or it is abundantly available to buy online.

Nutty Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Prep time: 10 minutes
Ready in: 1 hour
Serves 4 as a side dish

1 pound whole brussel sprouts
1 medium red onion (about 1½ cups)
4 ounces raw pecan halves (about ¾ cup)
2 teaspoons sea salt
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Rinse brussel sprouts, trim the ends, slice in half and place in a single layer in a casserole dish.
Slice the onion into wedges and add to the brussel sprouts along with the pecans.

Sprinkle the spices and nutritional yeast evenly over the dish and drizzle with olive oil. Mix the ingredients together using a spoon or spatula, return them to an even layer in the dish, and pop it in the oven.

Roast for 45 minutes, checking and mixing the ingredients every 15 minutes.

When it’s time, remove the dish from oven, let cool for at least 5 minutes then serve.
