Dijon Pomegranate Roasted Brussel Sprouts (Paleo + Keto Thanksgiving Menu)
Because I needed something on the table without bacon. Whoops! Just kidding, these Dijon Pomegranate Brussel Sprouts are all that!
Toasty, sweet, crunchy and just begging to be devoured. I know this because shorty after photographing it, I ate it all. No regrets.
The addition of pomegranate is a great pop of color! When you think about it, thanksgiving spreads can be rather …. well… brown. Except for the cranberry sauce, which I don’t do… because it’s gross, end of story.
This pomegranate studded vegetable dish the stunning, sticky, sweet and savory goodness, bonus it’s easy to make and roasts up in no time, for free you oven for other things, like you know, the turkey. It’s also nut free, coconut free, dairy free (option) and egg free!
Did You Know?
That drawer under your oven is not actually storing for your baking pans, it’s a warming oven. So pop your casseroles and side dishes in there while your turkey bakes so everything is hot and ready to go at the same time.
I know, my mind was blown too.
