Have you read The Honest Life by Jessica Alba yet? If not, you should! It’s a great book full of information on the hazards of chemicals and toxins out there that companies are putting in the items we use every day and she gives great ideas on ways to limit your and your children’s exposure. The book is broken up into different areas of your life, such as food, style, home, babies, etc. While reading the food section, I came across her suggestion to roast brussel sprouts with bacon and candied walnuts. Now, I DO NOT like brussel sprouts, at all!!! But my husband does and so I am constantly trying different recipes in hopes that I will find one that I like. And let me tell you, I loved these!!
One pound of brussel sprouts
¼ c. candied walnuts
4 slices of bacon
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat your oven to 400*
Clean and chop your brussel sprouts and put them on a baking sheet.
Then chop your candied walnuts and sprinkle those over the brussel sprouts.
Next dice up you bacon and add that to the baking sheet.
Drizzle olive oil on baking sheet and toss to coat all ingredients evenly.
Bake for 20-40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until crispy.
Enjoy your delicious brussel sprouts!!!
(Wow! I never thought I would say that!)
