Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Butternut Squash combines two favorite vegetables in a delicious easy side dish. This healthy recipe is vegan and gluten-free.
One of the things I really like about this Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash recipe is the colors.
While I love Brussels sprouts, when they are roasted they lose their vibrant green appearance.
However, the bright orange of the butternut squash makes the dinner plate a little more exciting, don’t you think?
And shallots add a subtle flavor that doesn’t overwhelm the other vegetables.
If you’ve never cooked with shallot, it’s similar to onion and garlic, but with a milder flavor.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash is easy to make.
Another great thing about this recipe is your oven does most of the work.
So you can leave it for 20 minutes while you prepare other dishes, give it a quick toss, then leave it again for another 15 or 20 minutes.
And I’ve found that it really doesn’t matter if you cook it longer.
Burnt Brussels sprouts taste delicious!
