Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate Vinaigrette

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate Vinaigrette
If you asked me to rank my favorite vegetables a month ago, Brussels sprouts wouldn’t even make the list.  I would even go so far as to say I hated them.  I thought they tasted bitter and disliked every recipe I ever tried them in, so I would avoid them at all costs.  
 
But recently, My Love made these Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate Vinaigrette and, unfortunately, I couldn’t avoid them any longer.  See, one of the many joys of being a parent is that you kind of have to practice what you preach.  I can’t tell my kids to eat their vegetables and try new things if I am not willing to do it myself.  So, I begrudgingly tried one of the Brussels sprouts while discreetly throwing dirty looks at My Love.  
 
Luckily, he didn’t see my surprise when I realized that not only did I not hate these Brussels sprouts, I actually really liked them.  I tried to play it cool and told him they were “alright” as I helped myself to several more servings of them.  But, there was no denying it.  I loved these Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate Vinaigrette!

They are tender with a nice bite to them.  The brown bits give the perfect little crunch.  Plus, they are seasoned really well and the pomegranate vinaigrette adds just the right amount of sweetness and acidity to send them over the top!  Plus, they are the perfect side dish to almost any meal!

You guys!  I have been converted!!  DO. NOT. TELL. MY. LOVE!  I can’t give him the satisfaction of knowing that I have changed my opinion of Brussels sprouts because of his recipe (although his cute smug smile suggest he already knows).

If you love Brussels sprouts, or even if you don’t, give this recipe a try.  You might be surprised at how lovely Brussels sprout can be!
