This is one of my favorite combinations of vegetables and starch. It is simple and easy to make but yet big on flavor. The pomegranate glaze elevates this humble recipe to the holiday table. Once you have it ready on the sheet pan, simply put it in the oven while you finish the rest of your meal prep.
This is such a festive looking dish.
A wonderful side dish with the Lentil Loaf with Date Glaze, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Curry Ginger Butternut Squash soup – a recipe you get when you subscribe to the blog and for dessert of course Apple Oat Crisp or Fall Pudding.
Use your favorite sweet syrupy balsamic vinegar like Napa Valley Naturals Grand Reserve or any 4% acidity balsamic. I like the Just Syrup Pomegranate Molasses but I will post another brand that is available on my Amazon affiliate store. If you have the California Balsamic Pomegranate Vinegar that will work too. Any stone ground mustard will work. I like the Westbrae Natural no salt added mustard.
My favorite spices come from Local Spicery where they mill all their own spices in small batches so you are always getting the freshest spices possible! Put Nutmeg Notebook in the message box at checkout and get 2 free sample spices with your order.
In addition to the garlic powder I also like to add fresh garlic to the mixture. The layering of flavors makes it taste amazing.
Fresh pomegranate arils add color, crunch and make this dish look festive! You can use dried cranberries or another dried fruit instead if you don’t have pomegranate arils.
I like to stuff some oven roasted Delicata Squash with the roasted Brussels Sprouts & Butternut Squash – scrumptious!
Watch this video to see how quick and easy this recipe is.
Use any thick and syrupy Balsamic Vinegar that is low acidity.
If you don’t have Pomegranate molasses use all Balsamic vinegar.
You can Substitute Date Syrup for the Pomegranate molasses.
A stone ground mustard or Dijon mustard will work.
Any winter squash can be used in place of Butternut Squash.
You can use all Brussels Sprouts and no squash.
You could use dried cranberries or any dried fruit to garnish instead of Pomegranate arils.
If you don’t like garlic leave it out.
