    • 2 apples - peeled, cored, and cut into chunks

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or more if needed

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6. Line grease a baking dish or line a baking tray with foil.
    2. Spread sprouts, cauliflower, apples and onion on the prepared baking dish or tray; drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper; stir until evenly coated.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until sprouts and cauliflower are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
    4. Transfer the roasted veg mixture to a serving bowl. Stir in sultanas and walnuts; drizzle with wine. Toss to coat.


    If you prefer the apples to have a bit of crunch, add them halfway through the cooking time. For ease of baking, we add them at the beginning and don't mind them a bit soft. They contrast nicely with the crunch of the walnuts.

    This was a fabulously healthy vegetable dish! I did do a couple of things different though. I bought honeycrisp apples and I cored and diced them, but left the healthy skin on. This added nutrients and color! I also omitted the salt and pepper and added 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar to the olive oil. I let them roast for 30 minutes as I like them browned a little bit. And when I added the raisins and walnuts I also added about 1/2 oz of crumbled feta cheese for just a slight zip. I then divided it into individual serving dishes to pack for my lunches. This will be a staple in my diet for sure!  -  07 Mar 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My wife and I really loved this recipe and will definitely do it again. I used dry cranberries we had on hand rather than raisins. Rather than drizzle oil on, I prefer to add the oil and seasoning in a bowl and mix everything. Everything else was pretty much as instructed. I didn't like brussels sprouts when I was young. The ones my mother served were always frozen ones that were then boiled. Now my wife and I always start with fresh ones and roast them. They are so much better.  -  02 Aug 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    so i did modify it a little because i didn't have any white wine. I used a balsamic vinegar reduction in it's place and it was MARVELOUS. I also added the walnuts with about 15 minutes to go to make them crunchy. Superb! thank you!  -  13 Jul 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
