Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Apples & Mint

Here is a simple & tasty way to enjoy winter’s hearty vegetable with a new and unique twist optimizing our love of herbs and seasonal ingredients, brightening us up in the dead of dark winter.

Serves 4


2 pounds Brussel sprouts, cleaned, trimmed and halved lengthwise
2 tart apples, cored and chopped into bite size chunks (peel on)
1 medium red onion, chopped medium
½ cup fresh mint leaves, torn into small pieces
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon almond oil (optional)


Pre-heat oven to 400°F and place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Next, place in a heavy bottom ceramic or glass baking dish. Bake for about 20 minutes, making sure to shuffle and toss brussel sprouts, apples and onion around the pan while baking to allow for even brownness.
