Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes with Balsamic Glaze

Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes in Balzamic Glaze

When it comes to veggies, Brussels sprouts have never been on my A-list. Maybe because of the overall rather unique taste or just the association with hearty German meals, that most kids just aren’t really into. Either way, as Brussels sprouts in all kinds of variations seem to be a staple in most restaurants in the US, I just recently discovered my secret passion for them. Especially in combination with my favorite starchy carb source – sweet potatoes – with this Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes with Balsamic Glaze you recipe get a hearty, yet healthy dish that works both perfect as a side for your dinner roast or as a fall flavored salad tossed over a bed of greens. I usually make a batch and store it in the fridge so that I can easily use it to prep my lunches for the following days. So, enjoy!
