Smoked Paprika and Shallot Brussels Sprouts

{Guest Post from Katie's Cucina} Smoked Paprika and Shallot Brussels Sprouts #recipe #vegetarian #sidedish

Last year, I shared this recipe over on Rachel Cooks. I figured why not share it this year with my readers in case you missed this awesome recipe last year.  People either love or hate Brussels sprouts. I am a lover, but I’ll be the first to admit it wasn’t until my late teens / early twenties when I first began to fall in love with Brussels sprouts. I am always looking for new ways to cook them up. I also love to keep my vegetable side dishes relatively healthy and not drown them in butter and fattening sauces. That is why I turned to my good friend, I mean spice, smoked paprika. This spice packs a punch and can bring tons of new layers of flavors to any dish. I just so happened to have a shallot in my pantry so I decided to make them fancy and add an extra-large shallot to the pan.

The night I made the Smoked Paprika and Shallot Brussels Sprouts I served them with the most delicious (and once again easy-to-make) Crunchy-Baked Chicken Strips and Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes and Cauliflower. This is a perfect healthy meal to cook on a busy weeknight when time is limited. Instead of reaching for your phone to call take-out give my complete meal a try!

    Your Brussels look scrumptious, Katie! I love them smashed, too, and even enjoy them with eggs and bacon for breakfast. Thanks for sharing, girl. Warmest wishes to you and yours for a happy and healthy New Year! xo
