Roasted root vegetables are an ideal winter side dish, and when they become brown and caramelized, they have a sweetness that can satisfy your sugar cravings. Usually, it’s plenty to toss them with just olive oil, salt, and pepper, but when you want a bit more, this is your dish. The citrus adds brightness, the sage adds softness, and when are whole roasted garlic cloves not a good thing?
Brussels sprouts can be a bit bitter—I think that’s why some people don’t like them. But here, any bitterness is countered with lemon juice, fresh dill, and toasted almonds. The result is a really good, completely health-conscious vegetable dish. Even if you haven’t liked Brussels sprouts before, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.
