A warm and cozy autumn side dish with roasted pumpkins and Brussels sprouts tossed with a spicy honey balsamic vinaigrette. The pomegranate seeds add their brilliant harvest colours to this rustic side dish.

  • 400 g Pumpkin, peeled and cut into inch pieces
  • 300 g Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut into half
  • 2 Shallots, diced
  • 1 clove Garlic, chopped
  • 1 Red chilli pepper, cut into rings
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp All spice
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pomegranate seeds
  1. Cut the pumpkin in half, scrape out the seeds and membrane , then cut into inch pieces. Slice off the rough part of the stem of Brussels sprouts. Remove the unappetizing outer leaves, cut out the core and slice vertically in half.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Remove papery outer skin from shallots and dice. Peel and chop the garlic. Cut the chilli pepper into rings. Combine olive oil, honey, balsamic vinegar, allspice and the prepared shallots, garlic, and chilli pepper. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place pumpkin and Brussels sprouts in a baking pan. Pour in the sauce and toss well. Place in the middle of hot oven and roast for about 25 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with some pomegranate seeds if desired. | © 2011 |

I like the idea of adding balsamic to roasted vegetables. Have never roasted brussel sprouts before and I'll be sure to look out for some to try roasting them.

Parsley Sage 5/10/12 08:52

Beautiful! This is something that should be in one of the fancy schmancy Martha Stewart Halloween specials. I've mentioned before that pumpkin is year round here, so this is one to be bookmared :)

@suhaina aji
If you don't have allspice, then use a mix of (1/2 tsp)cinnamon, (1/4 tsp) cloves and (1/4 tsp)nutmeg.

mjskit 6/10/12 22:16

This is really pretty. I bet the sweet squash goes really well with the sprouts.

Katerina 8/10/12 12:31

It's pumpkin season alright! I love pumpkin and pomegranate! This dish is right up my alley! Perfect for Autumn!

Helene Dsouza 8/10/12 16:28

I love all the ingredients here Angie, what a great autumn like recipe for the senses. I haven't had brussel sprouts since I was 11 so I am not sure if I d recognize the taste, as a kid I didn't like them but when u grow up lots of things change, right? =)

Devaki 8/10/12 23:47

Cass @foodmyfriend 9/10/12 01:14

I am loving your love of pumpkin this week! I know people are stereotypically not meant to like brussells, but I am a huge fan. Garlic.. butter... YUM!~

tigerfish 9/10/12 03:02

Perfect dish for autumn!

Roxana | Roxana's Home Baking 10/10/12 23:11

Spicie Foodie 10/10/12 23:12

Last week I cooked a recipe with Brussels sprouts and butternut squash. The combination was amazing to say the least! Your recipe sounds mouthwatering and I have to try it this weekend. Thanks for sharing Angie!

I haven't done anything with brussels sprouts yet this season... I've got to get on it - I can't think of a more inspiring post to get me there :).

Terra 12/10/12 04:18

See you did it again, this is why I love catching up on blogs! Love this recipe, the flavor combination is wonderful:-) Hugs, Terra

Lorraine Joy Alegria-Vizcarra 12/10/12 20:36

Your brussels spourts look great. Everytime I try to make some, it never tastes good. I can't wait to try your recipe.

Englisch Übersetzung 14/10/12 16:11

Great pumpkin idea : ) The ideal harvest food!

Couscous & Consciousness 15/10/12 02:33

Fabulous. Two of my favourite vegetables right there, and I love the inclusion of the pomegranate seeds. Pomegranates are generally hard to get here, and hideously expensive when you can. I splash out occasionally though, and the rest of the time I use pomegranate molasses in dressings for dishes like this.

Geni 15/10/12 19:57

Would love a plate of this right now! What nice rich flavors and so healthy!

Anonymous 16/10/12 05:55

What a brilliant idea! Pumpkin and brussel sprouts are definitely lovely partners. I'm always looking for new vegetable side dish recipes and this looks like a keeper.

The Duo Dishes 16/10/12 15:59

Nice touch with the pomegranate seeds. This would be nice with cranberries too. That sweet pop of flavor is nice.

Biren @ Roti n Rice 16/10/12 23:39

Very creative combination! Roasted pumpkin and Brussel sprouts sounds delicious.

Chaya 17/10/12 18:28

The problem coming here, is you have too many good recipes, I want to make. I always, come away with enough to keep me cooking for a minimum of a week and usually a month. I love your combinations, such as this one, which I plan to make. Thanks Angie.
