Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Crashed Almonds and Cranberries

Expatcucina got a bit fancy! Yes we did! Le Creuset has decided to sponsor my recipes and support my love for food by providing me with some of their extraordinary products.

After meeting their marketing manager and after doing a cooking demonstration for them, they have given me their product catalogue and let me pic whatever I thought I could use…I felt like a little kid at the toy store, but I tied to behave and not be too greedy and JUST ask for the following items, which were kindly delivered to my house on Saturday morning:


* French Oven (saffron)

* Cast Iron Skillet (flame)

* Multi Bowls (fennel)

* Salad plates (flame)

* Soup bowls (Caribbean)

* Oven Casserole (Dijon)

πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I could not wait to use them so I rushed to the kitchen and made this roasted brussels sprouts recipe! It tasted divine and looked amazing in Le Creuset pottery.

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 200 g fresh Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp marsala wine
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp crashed almonds
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries

Start off washing the Brussels sprouts and eliminating the external leaves


In a bowl combine olive oil, salt and Marsala wine, stir


put the Brussels sprouts into a zip lock bag, pour in the dressing and let them fall in love for 15-20 min


Next up, move the Brussels sprouts and their marinate into an oven casserole


Bake at 190 C for about 30 min

In the meantime, in a zip lock bag crush up some almonds


After 30 min, remove the Brussels sprouts from the oven


and add dried cranberries


and crushed almonds


stir well to combine and bake for 5-10 more minute


Remove from the oven and serve as a side dish

I loved the crunchness of the almonds and sweetness of the cranberries and marsala wine
