Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries and Pine Nuts

I am among the people who really love Roasted Brussels Sprouts. Last time I bought 4 pounds and cooked them all in about a week :). They can be cooked in so many ways, using different vegetables, and can make different side dishes each time. I rarely make the same recipe twice when I cook Brussels sprouts. I usually use whatever vegetables I have in the house, garlic, onion, celery, carrots, chestnuts, peas, and now cranberries and nuts.

When I saw this recipe on Rachel’s blog, Simply Fresh Cooking I said to myself I had to try it and it didn’t take too long until I did. I like the simplicity of this recipe and though I didn’t have pecans at that time I used pine nuts.  I loved the combination, actually, I love it so much that I already made this about three times now. You can replace the garlic with onion if that pleases you more, either way, it is delicious.

The sweet cranberries and crunchy toasted nuts go perfectly with Brussels Sprouts. When roasted in the oven, the Brussels Sprouts’ leaves that loose become brown and crunchy. What other better side dish than this roasted Brussels sprouts with cranberries and pine nuts for this time of the year?

Most people cook them more often during the holidays, I would say that they are delicious for any other time too.
