Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Pecans

Has anyone noticed that I have an obsession with Brussels sprouts? I’ve always been a big veggie lover, but there’s just something about the strong, nutty taste of Brussels sprouts that makes them one of my all-time favorite vegetables to eat. And almost better than their amazing taste is the fact that they’re beyond easy to cook with and only take a few seasonings—salt and pepper, namely—to create a surprisingly flavorful dish.

Though I love them in Brussels sprouts pasta and I’m dying to try them on a tasty pizza, one of my favorite ways to fix them is to simply toss them in a little olive oil, combine them with pecans and roast them on a baking sheet. It makes the perfect side dish for practically any meal or occasion, whether it’s with grilled pork chops for a small dinner at home (like Harrison and I made last night) or as a side for a big holiday meal.
