Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Asparagus

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Asparagus
  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts cut in half and quick blanch
  • 2 cups asparagus cut into 3 inch pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 zucchini large julienne cut
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350. Toss Brussels sprouts, asparagus, bell pepper, and zucchini with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast on top shelf of oven for 25 minutes or until golden in colour. Make sure to blanch Brussels sprouts, this will make sure they cook evenly with the other vegetables. Try adding parsnips, carrots, pearl onions or shallots to kick it up a notch. Let me know how they come out.

I'm always looking for new ways to cook up my veggies. Mabey I can get my son to eat his green vegetables this way.

Thanks,

Wow! You sure make veggies look tasty. I have a hard time finding Brussel sprouts where I live. Do you think it would be good with just asparagus?

brussel sprouts ~ definitly sounds great when roasted w. olive oil & salt as you described....parsnips great too!

Just got over my childhood fear of brussel sprouts that were cooked to death.

I am just not into brussel sprouts. They look fab in your photo, but I am still not convinced! Maybe you need to cook me some ;)

I think I'm one of the few people who actually likes Brussels sprouts Erik. I'm never had them with asparagus before but this sounds like a great combination. Somebody told me that Zucchini is actually what we call an aubergine over here in England.
