Roasted Indian Brussels Sprouts


Brussels sprouts is my favorite adult vegetable because it wasn't something I ever had as a kid.  These Roasted Indian Brussels Sprouts are inspired by the Indian spices I already had.  For a simple meatless Monday recipe, I served the Roasted Indian Brussels Spouts over quinoa and brown rice.  I love these packets of organic quinoa and brown rice by Seeds of Change that I got at Costco.  They are great for a quick meal and you can microwave the quinoa and brown rice in its own packet, so they are perfect to keep at work too.
