Honey & Thyme Roasted Sprouts

I LOVE sprouts, I think they are a little like marmite…you love them or hate them! I could eat them all year they are possibly one of my most favourite vegetables.

Each year I make these with pancetta, parsley and chestnuts (I will share this recipe soon) so this year I wanted to try something new.  I have recently noticed a few photos of sprouts which have been roasted so thought I would give them a go.  I liked the idea of them being slightly caramelised with a golden brown colouring, so I thought a drizzle of honey could be a good idea. Instead of my usual herb of choice; parsley, I opted for Thyme, then I thought it needed a little zing so added a squeeze of lemon…..the result was amazing, very tasty and my new favourite way of cooking them, check it out….
