Thyme Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Mushrooms
I love brussels sprouts! And luckily they are plentiful this time of the year! My favorite way to eat them is roasted in a little olive oil, because it brings out the flavor, the inside gets tender and the outside leaves get crispy. Add a little sea salt, and they are like savory candy! They are so simple to make, and so good! The recipe I am sharing with you today combines them with mushrooms for a little bit of an earthy flavor, and shallots, for a little bit of sweet onion flavor, all combined with thyme, an aromatic herb that is awesome in anything this time of the year! Eating healthy is easy when it tastes good like this! This is a great side dish for your Fall and Winter dinners, and so easy and fast to make!
