Recipe by Will and Erin Odom
So often we think that the switch to eating real, healthy food has to be hard.
Part of my mission for this blog is to take the overwhelm out of all aspects of homemaking–including cooking!
I don’t cook complicated and time-intensive meals. As the busy mom of three (almost four!) children, I just don’t have the margin in my life for that.
Instead, I stick to easy recipes with wholesome ingredients. I’ve found that these types of recipes can actually yield healthier results anyway.
Instead of baking a fancy vegetable casserole as a side dish, I most often opt for roasted or sautéed veggies.
Although fresh produce is always ideal, I’ll be honest in that I keep our freezer stocked with certain frozen vegetables year-round.
Frozen vegetables are usually picked and preserved at their prime, meaning they reserve much more nutritional value than their canned counterparts.
In addition, frozen veggies can shave some time off of food prep, as they’re usually already pre-washed and pre-cut.
One of our favorite frozen veggies to keep on hand year-round is brussels sprouts.
Would you believe I never even tried those nutrient-dense vegetable until I was an adult? I vaguely remember a Leave It to Beaver re-run where Beaver laments that his mother is making him at brussels sprouts (or maybe that was The Brady Bunch or The Andy Griffith Show?).
I was pleasantly surprised to realize how much I love brussels sprouts when I first tried them a few years ago, and Will was the same way.
Thankfully, our kids are growing up with them as the norm; they think they’re amazing!
Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts
- Brussels Sprouts (We like the Birds Eye brand.)
- Olive Oil
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Spread the brussel sprouts onto a sheet or dish
- Drizzle olive oil over them
- Season to taste (A favorite in our house – Redmond Real Salt Seasoning Salt)
- Bake in the oven for 20 mins
- If you prefer them a little crispier (like my hubby does), you can broil them for 5 minutes or until they reach desired crispiness.
