Recipe Tips & Substitutions

  • You can double this recipe to make more servings. But, you will need to cook the vegetables on two baking sheets.
  • This recipe is very versatile. Don’t like walnuts? Leave them off or use your favorite nut or seed instead. Pecans, pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, chopped almonds, and sunflower seeds would also be delicious.
  • You can also get creative with the seasonings. Feel free to use fresh sage, oregano, onion powder, and top the veggies with balsamic vinegar or even a drizzle of maple syrup to enhance the natural sweetness of the potatoes.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Recipe FAQs

Can I use pre-chopped veggies?

Yes, but often the diced sweet potatoes are fairly small. You may need to start the Brussels a few minutes before adding the potatoes if they are smaller than the ones in my photos.

Can I double this recipe?

Absolutely! Depending on the size of your pans, you may need to use two to prevent overcrowding. You can easily feed a crowd this way or have leftovers to reheat.
