I never liked brussel sprouts as a kid, but now I can’t get enough.  I have been known to eat them for my meal, as they are a filling food with more protein than most vegetables.  In addition, they are low in calories at 25 calories per serving while being packed full of vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, potassium, and fiber.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Orange and Tarragon

  • 1 bag of brussel sprouts, quartered
  • zest of  one orange
  • one orange, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons orange white balsamic vinegar (although any balsamic will do)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons tarragon
  • 1/2 cup lightly toasted chopped pecans
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine the brussel sprouts and orange cubes in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl,  stir to combine the orange zest, olive oil, vinegar, sea salt, garlic powder, and tarragon.
  4. Pour the oil mixture over the brussel sprouts and toss to coat.
  5. Roast the brussel sprouts in a roasting pan for 45 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle pecans on top and serve.
