I really like Brussels, you guys. I mean they are so tasty and crunchy! They are the perfect, easy side dish that you pop in the oven while you’re getting everything else together. Buuut I tend to just do the same thing over and over with my Brussels which leaves me wanting an alternative every now and then. Uhh, I mayyy have created my new go to recipe. BABES!

Ima tell you. Mouthwatering tangy sweet sauce is cominattyouuuu. Plus, I went out to eat with some friends the other night and there was some roasted pomegranate in my salad (genius) so I had to include some for good measure. 

OH! AND this is super duper easy too.

Roast in the oven for 20 minutes. After the 20 minutes, sprinkle the pomegranate seeds and roast for another 10 minutes. While in the home stretch of roasting, throw some pepitas (pumpkin seeds) in a pan over medium-high heat. Toast them for about 5 minutes, shaking the pan frequently to brown them evenly.

Set aside until the Brussels are done cooking. Plate the Brussels and pomegranate and sprinkle with pepitas.
