Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Red Onions

M & I wanted to eat something simple tonight, and I remembered one of Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's recipes that incorporated sprouts with apples. I don't remember her recipe exactly but here's what I came up with. The apples help keep the other vegetables from getting too dry and caramelize the onions beautifully.

12-15 brussels sprouts (halved, washed, and trimmed)
5 cloves of garlic (crushed, quartered, and trimmed)
1 medium-sized red onion (chopped)
2 crisp apples (chopped)
4  Tbs. olive oil
4 Tbs. fresh rosemary (rubbed)
coarse salt
loads of fresh ground pepper

Pre-heat your oven to 425. Toss all of the ingredients on a baking pan and coat with olive oil, salt, pepper, and rosemary. Place the pan in the oven and wait for about 30 minutes or until everything is starting to brown. I usually move things around on the pan every 10 minutes or so to prevent sticking. 
Nothing says fall like the smell of roasted apples! Enjoy as a side dish or on its own. Brussels Sprouts are gorgeous and so good for you, so eat up!



  1. this looks incredible. i'm officially going to the market to buy brussels sprouts + apples tomorrow. yum!

  2. hi veganette,

    made this treat for my family recently. at first everyone turned up their nose really exaggerated like. "apples AND brussel sprout?" total drama.

    but then they tried it and the tide turned--it ended up being the biggest hit of the evening!!

    thanks for all you do to keep us baffled and fed.

  3. I'm cooking this right now! Can't wait to try it with some rice...
