I was never a big fan of health nuts like brussels sprouts and butternut squash. Until one day when I grew up and realized roasted vegetables are gloriously yummy.

Our Littles are clearly smarter than I was. They get the roasted veggie thing; the Littlest Little even begs for brussels sprouts out of the blue. Really.

For awhile I absentmindedly left brussels sprouts off my greens radar. That boy hounded me every day until I started remembering to throw brussels in my cart from now on and forever more.

I make no promises that this Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash will turn chicken-nugget-only bambinos into vegetable lovers.

But I will say this is a shockingly easy way to prepare sprouts ‘n squash in a way that tastes incredible.

And ya never know; even those who profess not to be mini-cabbage gobblers might just do a double take with this one…
