Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Sweet Potatoes with Dijon Vinaigrette 

This dish is perfect for fall…roasted brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, dried cranberries, all tossed in an easy dijon mustard vinaigrette! My favorite part is the way the brussels sprouts get all crispy and caramelized!  It’s such an easy recipe making it is the perfect addition to your weeknight dinner or your holiday table.

Ingredients:

1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch chunks)
1 lb Brussels Sprouts, stems trimmed and sliced lengthwise in half
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup dried cranberries

Dijon Vinaigrette:
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
two pinches of salt
freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the sweet potato cubes and halved Brussels sprouts on a large baking sheet. Drizzle them with the 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, and toss them with your hands to distribute the oil evenly.

Sprinkle the vegetables evenly with kosher salt and pepper, and toss them again with your hands. Spread the vegetables out evenly onto the baking sheet (tip: flip the Brussels sprouts so they are cut side down, they will caramelize much more evenly this way).

Roast the vegetables at 450 degrees*** for 25 to 30 minutes, tossing them gently 1 to 2 times during the roasting time to ensure that they caramelize evenly on all sides. Scatter the dried cranberries onto baking sheet in the last five minutes of roasting time. Place the baking pan on a rack and allow the vegetables to cool slightly while you prepare the Dijon vinaigrette.

In a small bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard and rice wine vinegar. Slowly pour in the olive oil, whisking continuously with your other hand, until the ingredients are emulsified. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Gently place the roasted vegetables in large bowl. Pour on the Dijon vinaigrette and toss the vegetables gently until they are lightly dressed. Serve warm, lukewarm, or cold.

***If your vegetables start to get too crispy, just turn the oven temperature down to 400 degrees for the remainder of the baking time.

    This looks great! Do you think it would taste good if you did regular potatoes (red, white,etc)? Love all the new recipes you post!

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      I’m not really sure. I would substitute butternut squash for the sweet potatoes. If you try it with traditional potatoes, let me know how it works!
