Potatoes, carrots, parsnips and brussels sprouts are tossed together with dried herbs and roasted to perfection. I can’t believe it has taken me so long to share this recipe, it is seriously fabulous! I made this delicious side dish for Christmas dinner and received rave reviews. The original recipe called for an obscene amount of pepper and a dash of salt. I adjusted the seasonings to suit our taste and it is phenomenal. I usually don’t care for brussel sprouts, but this recipe has changed my mind! 😉 After everyone was finished with their plate, they were coming back for more roasted brussel sprouts. Brussel sprouts!? I served this for a special holiday dinner, but they are so easy and fast that they would be perfect for a week night meal.
