Growing up Brussels sprouts were not on my radar of acceptable vegetables. I definitely wasn’t picky when it came to eating my vegetables but Brussels sprouts were just not something we had on hand. Most of our vegetables came from our garden which means we ate a lot of green beans, snow peas, cabbage, carrots, broccoli, and zucchini. We didn’t grow Brussels sprouts so we didn’t eat Brussels sprouts.

Simple enough, right?

Plus, I always thought they were only served smothered in cheese and the thought of eating vegetables smothered in creamy orange cheese sorta freaks me out.

This version of Brussels sprouts is a bit fancier than I normally serve but I think the twist makes it perfect for your holiday table spread. Slightly crispy roasted Brussels sprouts topped with crunchy pomegranate seeds and crumbled goat cheese – what’s not to love?

I mean, for real. How can you not want to jump into this picture?

I also happen to think feta cheese would make an excellent substitute if you’re not on the goat cheese train. I mean, I think everyone should love goat cheese but I get it if it’s not your thing.

Well, I sorta get it. I could live off goat cheese and be happy but whatever. I won’t judge you.

To your face.

KIDDING!

I also happen to think that roasting Brussels sprouts is the best way to pack in all the flavor of this dish. I have done this before with blanching but really roasting is just easier and you get little-charred bits which is just love and flavor.

Just remember to watch the sprouts while they are roasting. No one wants overcooked cruciferous vegetables.

NO ONE!
