One of my favorite vegetables has to roasted brussels sprouts. They’re so easy to prepare and the flavor combinations are endless. I usually prepare them with a honey mustard sauce but today I’m mixing it up and preparing orange roasted brussels sprouts. Add some fresh orange juice to the sprouts while they're cooking, allowing them to soak in all the flavors. Finish the dish with toasted pistachios and dried cranberries for some crunch and a touch of sweetness. Need an incredible side dish either for the holidays or just for a weeknight dinner? Look no further! This recipe will surely win you over.

    Great combination of ingredients! Sounds delicious. Love that you don't have to par boil the sprouts. Can't wait to try it.

    an even easier and quicker recipe is to not only slice the sprouts in half but then also slice the halfs in smaller parts. throw with onion and bacon parts in a pan and stirfry it for about 5-10 min. Pepper and salt on top and they are ready.
