Roasted Italian Brussels with Arugula Pistachio Pesto
Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
Since the moment I experienced brussel sprouts, I’ve been hooked! There is something about the flavor and texture that like countless other people, we’re just instantly drawn to.
While you can easily just roast and enjoy, my favorite thing to do with brussels, is to pair them with flavor!
I’m going to revamp these older recipes, but they still remain to be some of faves today! I’ve done Korean Bbq, Bbq Brussels, and Honey Mustard Bbq Brussels!! Sounds weird? I promise.. SO GOOD.
What’s fab about this recipe, is everything. It’s a quick and easy veggie packed sauce, features staple ingredients, texture, healthy fats, a gorgeous color, the dish can easily be made in bulk, is perf for any season and I could honestly eat a bucket of these with no complaints!!
