Baked Vegan Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts with Tarragon

                                          

Hi Loves!
Here is a delicious plant-based dish that I absolutely love and it's so satisfying having this in the cold days of winter.  I'm all for delicious unprocessed carbs so this is a perfect dish to enjoy while getting your greens in. I ate this as an entree but this would make an equally fantastic side dish.
So lets get started with this easy recipe that you'll love so, so much!!

Ingredient list:

Sweet Potatoes - 2 Medium-sized, cut into equal sized chunks
Brussels Sprouts - 2 cups, cut into quarters
Black Pepper - 1/2 teaspoon
Garlic - 2 cloves, minced
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 1 Tablespoon
Fresh Tarragon - 1 Tablespoon, chopped finely
Himalayan Pink Salt to taste




To start, get the sweet potatoes peeled and chopped. It doesn't matter too much how large or small of pieces you get, just try and get them the same sized so they all cook at the same time. Once the sweet potatoes are all chopped up, set them aside and go ahead and turn on the oven at 375 degrees. While the oven is warming up, start addressing the Brussels sprouts. To get the sprouts prepped, chop off the stem piece then cut the sprout into quarters.

Now, get yourself a good oven-safe tray and line it with some parchment paper. Spread the Brussels sprouts and the sweet potatoes out on the tray. If you like, you can use two trays since the sweet potatoes will take longer to cook but I'm lazy and don't like to clean multiple trays if I don't have to. Anyhow, you're going to drizzle the olive oil over the vegetables and sprinkle the pepper, garlic and salt over the top.

Slide the tray into the oven and let the veggies do their cooking. The sprouts will cook in about 15-20 minutes while the potatoes will cook in 25-30 minutes. You know the sprouts are done when they start turning golden brown and crisping up. The potatoes are done when you can stab them with a fork and the fork goes in easily.

Pull the vegetables out and divvy them up however you like and sprinkle the fresh tarragon over the top. And that does it! Whether you enjoy this dish as a side or just a healthy entree, I'm sure you will love it. Please comment and share this with your friends! Thank you!





I mentioned earlier that I had an announcement.  Moving forward, you will not be seeing any more dishes with animal products in them on my blog. I've made the decision to go for a plant-based lifestyle for reasons that I will explain in a separate posting, but I made this choice mostly for my health. I will say, I'm not going to remove my previous posts for now so you can still visit them whenever you like, both plant-based and not. Thank you very much!
