In honor of St Patricks Day, we’re loving all things green today and that includes veggies! Fruit and vegetables always go hand-in-hand and today’s recipe is a perfect example. Sumac roasted grapes and Brussels sprouts might sound a little unusual, but we promise you’ll love this Middle Eastern twist on a traditional European festive dish.
Need some more convincing? Here are some of the many health benefits of incorporating Brussels sprouts in your diet:
- Brussels sprouts are one of the foods richest in vitamin K, which helps with blood clotting and bone health.
- They’re also high in vitamin C, a boost for your immune system
- Their high fiber content helps your digestive system to run smoothly
- In addition, Brussels sprouts contain small amounts of many other nutrients such as vitamin B6, potassium, iron, thiamine, magnesium and phosphorus.
Sumac Roasted Grapes & Brussels Sprouts (makes one roasting tray)
- 2 cups of brussels sprouts
- 2 cups red grapes from the Fruitful Day Box
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp sumac
- 1 tbsp melted grass fed butter
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
2. Wash brussels sprouts and remove any external bruised leaves.
3. Chop any excess stems off the brussels sprouts and cut both these and the grapes in half.
4. Put brussels sprouts and grapes in a roasting tray or two – they brown more easily if they aren’t piled up on top of each other.
5. Melt butter and pour over.
6. Sprinkle sumac over the tray and combine with your hands until evenly coated.
7. Roast for 30 minutes or until browned.
