Ingredients

2 lb
small to medium-sized brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
2 large
shallots, peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 c
blood orange olive oil or 2 tablespoon fresh blood orange juice and 2 tablespoons extra virgin oil
1 Tbsp
ground cumin
3 slice
turkey bacon or bacon substitute
1 Tbsp
blood orange zest, finely grated

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large prep bowl, combine the Brussels sprouts, shallots, blood orange olive oil (or blood orange juice and olive oil) and cumin. Toss mixture together well to coat.
4
Arrange the vegetable on a parchment-lined baking sheet in a single layer with the Brussels sprouts facing cut side down.
5
Roast for about 20-25 minutes or until sprouts are tender and easily pierce with a knife but NOT mushy.
6
Season with salt and cracked black pepper, to taste. Garnish the vegetables with the bacon bits and the blood orange zest.
