If you are looking for a festive and delicious yet super healthy side dish this Christmas, look no further! These Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Water Chestnuts and Pomegranate Seeds are sure to be a hit!
While this is totally not a classic Christmas recipe that you should ultimately reserve for your Holiday menu — as in: it would be equally delicious any time of year, really, providing that you can get your hands on the pomegranate — you have to admit that with its gorgeous jewel-like colors that fit the theme perfectly well, this Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts dish would look absolutely spectacular on your table this Christmas!
And in case you are wondering, I can totally attest to the fact that it tastes just as fantastic as it looks. It has just as much flavors and textures to offer as it has colors! And they all complement each other perfectly well. You’re looking at a total multi-sensory party happening right here! What’s even more to love about it is that it is crazy easy to make and can even be made in advance, if you don’t mind eating it on the colder side. Simply take it out of the fridge a few hours before serving so it has a chance to get back up in temperature a little…
Just one word of advice, though, before you run to the store – or kitchen – to make it. Yes, there is pure vanilla extract in that dressing. By all means, do not leave it out: it makes a WORLD of difference in the overall flavor profile of the dish!
Seriously, this would be a Brussels sprouts dish that even the kids will go for! I say you should totally give it a try!
