Apples, Almonds & Brussels Sprouts

Apples, Almonds & Brussels | Eat Well at Festival Foods Apples and almonds and Brussels, oh my! Three of my favorite fall foods are all mixed together in this delectable, seasonal side. With sweet, softened apples; crunchy, toasted almonds; and succulent, roasted Brussels sprouts, this side dish is the perfect pairing for baked Dad’s chicken breast, slow-roasted pork tenderloin, or even the Thanksgiving Day turkey!



Apples, Almonds & Brussels Sprouts


½ cup sliced almonds

1 lbs. Brussels sprouts, halved

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. unsalted butter (or more olive oil for dairy free)

2 medium apples, quartered and cut into ½-inch pieces

2 garlic cloves, minced

Salt and pepper, to taste  


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Place almonds in an even layer on a dry, jelly roll pan. Toast for 8 minutes or until fragrant and slightly golden. Carefully transfer from pan to a clean bowl and set aside.
  2. Increase the oven temperature to 400°F. Toss Brussels sprouts in olive oil and spread evenly on a baking sheet. Roast for 35 minutes or until Brussels sprouts are tender and edges have started to crisp. Remove from oven and set aside.
  3. Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and browned; about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in Brussels sprouts and cook until mixture is warm. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Transfer apple and Brussels sprout mixture to a large serving bowl. Top with toasted almonds and serve warm.
