I love roasting vegetables, and Brussels sprouts are delicious prepared this way.

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts

How to prepare:

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Toast nuts in a frying pan (no oil) till golden; set aside.
  3. Cut Brussels sprouts in half; place in a large bowl.
  4. To the bowl add oil, salt, pepper and toss well.
  5. Place sprouts into a baking dish.
  6. Roast for 15 minutes.
  7. Stir to even out browning, then continue roasting 30 minutes more.
  8. Stir once more, then drizzle maple syrup on top and roast 15 minutes more or till tender.
  9. Toss with nuts.

6 servings.  Weight Watcher Points Plus value:  6  (4 without nuts)

Sorry, I can’t remember which cookbook this recipe came out of.

Here’s some comfort food directly from Quick Fix Vegetarian by Robin Robertson.  (Click on any of the books inside my recommendations shop, then on the book’s page, click on the book to peek inside and get free recipes.  Most of these books have free recipes, some may not).  This is a family favorite that takes minutes to prepare and one hour to bake.  Now you can go buy a big stalk  of brussels sprouts!

Here you go:

  1. Prepare a large baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Spread 1 cup of chopped onions in the dish.
  3. Top with 1 lb baby carrots, 2 cups of halved brussels sprouts, and about 2 cups of halved fingerling potatoes.
  4. Drizzle 1 Tbsp canola oil over vegetables and sprinkle with 1 tsp thyme, salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Cover tightly and bake at 400 for 45 minutes.
  6. Uncover, stir the vegetables, and then add 4 servings of seitan cut up into chunks and 1 1/2 cups of prepared vegan gravy mix (like Hain).
  7. Cover and return to the oven for 15 more minutes.

4 hearty servings.  Weight Watchers Plus Points value: 6
