  • Chilli flakes (to your liking)
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Trim Brussel sprouts by cutting off the little brown end and cut in half. Steam brussels sprouts in microwave for 1 min 30 secs and transfer to a lined baking dish.
  3. Wash and chop sweet potato. Add to the baking dish with brussels. 
  4. Drizzle brussels and sweet potato with garlic oil (IBS option). If you prefer you could chop some fresh garlic, add it to some olive oil and drizzle over the veggies.

  6. Add a drizzle of olive oil and stoss the veggies to coat in the spices.
  7. Roast in preheated oven for about 30-40 minutes. The veggies are done when they are browned and crispy.
  8. Whilst veggies are in the oven, toast pine nuts on low heat until browned.
  9. When veggies are cooked, remove from baking tray and serve hot in a bowl topped with toasted pine nuts.
