I’m a big fan of roasted brussels sprouts. Yet I understand there are people out there who are not yet convinced of the glorious attributes of these little green orbs.

I believe I have found a way to pull them over to the green side, so to speak.

Mixing brussels sprouts with another green veggie, like say french beans for instance, is a great way to introduce brussels sprouts to the menu.

By mixing an old faithful vegetable like green beans, along with the brussels, provides a sense of comfort, as well as a nice textural balance.

Then here comes the best part…

Before they go in the oven, toss the brussels sprouts and french beans with a little olive oil and zippy Old El Paso Taco Seasoning, to add an unexpected zesty note to the veggies! (You can buy it in packets or in a can for easy sprinkling.)
