400-500gbrussel sproutsI used green and purple ones
2orangespeeled and chopped
4garlic clovesskins removed
Handful of pomegranate seeds
Handful walnutsslightly crushed
Drizzle of maple syrupoptional
Handful of fresh rosemary and thymefinely chopped
Salt & pepper
Place your oven on 180C to heat up, drizzle 2-3 tbsp olive oil into your oven dish and place in the oven
Meanwhile wash and prep the sprouts, I like to chop roughly half and leave the others whole. Then peel and chop the oranges and take the skin off the garlic cloves and give them a smack with the side of your knife to help release the flavour
Once the oven is up to temperature remove the oven dish and place in the sprouts, oranges and garlic, they should start to sizzle from the dishes heat. Season with olive oil, salt and pepper then place in the oven for 15-18 minutes
Remove from the oven adding the freshly finely chopped herbs, walnuts, pomegranate seeds along with a drizzle of maple syrup (optional) and mix before placing back in the oven for 5-10 mins depending on your preference
Finally I like to top mine with fresh thyme and its ready to serve!
Tip: If you are tight for time on Christmas Day or your oven just isn’t big enough to cook everything, then simply prepare these the day before and store in your fridge inside a large container with a lid. Simply place them back in the oven for 5-10 minutes before serving to warm up!Tip: Ovens can differ quite a lot from each other, always keep and eye on them if your oven runs very hot as the time maybe faster for you!
