Years ago I had a few Kalette plants that outlasted every other vegetable in my garden and grew like trees. It’s been difficult to find that particular variety these days, but I am lucky enough to have a great organic farm nearby and when I stopped in, they had kalettes. Kalettes are also known as kale sprouts and they are delicious when seasoned and roasted. If you can’t find kalettes, you can substitute for Brussels sprouts which are plentiful year round. I love this recipe because of the complex textures of crunchy from the garlic, kalettes, and walnuts. I especially enjoy the middle eastern flavors my Healthy On You® While My Za’atar Gently Weeps spice blend imparts to this dish. The sumac lends a lemony tang that is just the right balance with the pomegranate seeds. This is a delicious side for any protein and is festive for the holidays.

Roasted Baby Brussels Sprouts with Maple Pomegranate Dressing

moroccan round the clock

Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite fall vegetables. There’s a large organic farm near my home and they always have baby Brussels on hand this time of year. The smaller size allows them to cook and brown faster in the oven. They are also easier to trim and clean before baking.
