Fancy roasted Brussels Sprouts

Sweet Potato Brussels Sprouts

This is a recipe I tried a couple years ago, and it was so delicious I have to write about. Once prepared, it tastes so good, like made by a Chef at a fancy restaurant.

It doesn’t only look appealing, it is fragrant and delicious. Sweet potatoes are not common in Europe, so I call this dish an American favorite.

Preheat oven to 400 F

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes

If sweet potatoes are not available use carrots. Pecans can be substituted by walnuts or cashews


  • 4 cups brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1 large sweet potato, chopped into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt, to taste
  • 1/4 cup raw pecans
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup feta or goat cheese


  • Reheat oven to 400F
  • Add the brussels sprouts, sweet potato, olive oil, garlic powder, cumin, allspice, and sea salt to a casserole dish (8-inch by 8″ or 9″ by 13″).
  • Toss everything together and coat the veggies.
  • Place on the center rack of the oven and bake 45 to 60 minutes, stirring once halfway through until veggies are golden-brown.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the balsamic vinegar over medium-high, and bring to a full boil. Cook at a full controlled boil, stirring frequently, until vinegar is reduced by 1/2 of its original volume, about 5 minutes.
  • Taste veggies for flavor and add salt to taste.


Serve roasted veggies with pecans, feta, and balsamic reduction drizzled on top
