I hope you are having a great Sunday, today I want to share with you this delicious savory dish. Mixing the fresh sweet pomegranate with the savory mustard and soya sauce you just get the most delicious sauce on top of these roasted Brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes, is just perfection on a plate.
I do prefer roasted Brussel sprouts instead of boiled, they are really delicious, it is incredible how yummy they are, because of its strong flavor they pair amazingly well with the pomegranates!

2 sweet potatoes
the arils of a pomegranate

1/4 olive oil
total time: 45 minutes

1.Pre-heat the oven to 250ºC, start by slicing off the hard end, peeling and washing the Brussel sprouts, I like to halve them if they are too big, otherwise I leave them as they are.
2.Peel and cut in a cm squares the sweet potatoes.
3.Pour the Brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes in a oven tray, then add the olive oil, chilli flakes, herbs de provence, salt and pepper. Mix it all well!
4.Bake for 30 minutes at 250ºC until the sweet potatoes are golden and the Brussel sprouts soft enough.
5.Meanwhile let´s make the sauce, in a bowl just add the tahini, mustard, soya sauce and olive oil. Give it a good mix!
