Simple Healthy Christmas Recipe & Benefits

 

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze and Pomegranate Seeds

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons balsamic glaze (store-bought or homemade)
  • ¼ cup pomegranate seeds
  • Optional: chopped nuts (such as walnuts or pecans) for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Place the trimmed and halved Brussels sprouts on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, ensuring the sprouts are evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss them gently to coat.
  3. Roast the Brussels sprouts in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy on the edges. Shake the pan occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  4. Once roasted, remove the Brussels sprouts from the oven and transfer them to a serving dish.
  5. Drizzle the roasted Brussels sprouts with balsamic glaze. The glaze adds a lovely tangy sweetness to the dish. Use a spoon or a drizzling bottle for an artistic touch!
  6. Sprinkle the pomegranate seeds over the top for a burst of color, flavor, and a hint of festive cheer. Optionally, add some chopped nuts for extra texture and flavor.
  7. Serve your beautifully garnished Roasted Brussels Sprouts immediately as a flavorful and healthy side dish for your vegan Christmas feast!

This dish not only looks stunning with its vibrant colors but also offers a wonderful mix of sweet and tangy flavors that complement the earthy Brussels sprouts.

Benefits:

  1. Brussels Sprouts: High in fiber, vitamins K and C, Brussels sprouts support bone health, aid in blood clotting, and boost the immune system. They’re also packed with antioxidants, which help reduce inflammation and protect against chronic diseases.
  2. Olive Oil: Rich in healthy monounsaturated fats and antioxidants, olive oil promotes heart health, reduces the risk of chronic diseases, and supports brain function. It also possesses anti-inflammatory properties.
  3. Pomegranate Seeds: Loaded with antioxidants, vitamins C and K, and dietary fiber, pomegranate seeds promote heart health, aid digestion, and may help reduce the risk of certain cancers. They’re also known to have anti-inflammatory effects.
  4. Balsamic Glaze: While in moderation, balsamic glaze can be a flavorful addition. Balsamic vinegar may have antioxidant properties and potentially contribute to better digestion and blood sugar control.
  5. Chopped Nuts (Optional): Nuts like walnuts or pecans add healthy fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals. They support heart health, brain function, and may even aid in weight management.

Enjoy the festive flavors and the warmth they bring to your holiday table!

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
