See that bag up there? That is a bag of Mann's Family Favorites Brussels Sprouts, and it makes my kitchen life SO EASY! So easy that it's totally worth the all caps yelling.

Brussels can be a little bit of a pain to prepare as you need to go through them one by one, cut off their tough ends, and trim off their outer leaves. EXCEPT if you're using Mann's Family Favorites Brussels Sprouts. Then all you have to do is open the bag and pour out your brussels. So easy!

This time of year always feels hectic. Is it the same for you? It's the time of year when every little convenience becomes more important than ever. If I can save 15 minutes of washing and cutting veggies, I'm in.

That time saved will be well used playing with my daughter, hanging out with my handsome man, pouring myself a glass of wine, or relaxing. Ok, that might be a bit idyllic. Doing laundry, washing dishes, and picking up toys paints a more realistic picture. #truth

But either way, picking up a bag of prewashed and cut Mann's veggies means that I get more time to do the things I need or want to do. It's like winning the lottery.

I've used Mann's pre-cut veggies many times, both in recipes here on the blog and when I'm strapped for time at home. I buy them at my local grocery store. You can find out where to buy them here. They're widely available so chances are, your life will get a whole lot easier very soon!

When you're at the store, eye out which other Mann's vegetables are available. I have several recipes using Mann's Fresh Vegetables and more on the way.

Serve garlic roasted brussels sprouts for the holidays

Whole roasted brussels sprouts with garlic are the PERFECT side dish for your holiday table. Bonus: they can be made ahead of time.

If you're making them for Thanksgiving or Christmas, cook them ahead of time for 30 minutes then take them out of the oven. Let them cool, cover the pan with plastic wrap, then put them in your fridge. When the turkey comes out of the oven, remove the plastic wrap and put them back into the oven to warm and finish cooking.

By the time the turkey rests for 15 minutes, your brussels will be ready to go!

Make roasted garlic brussels for dinner

My favorite way to serve these brussels is with chicken and a big salad. It ticks all the boxes for me: easy to make, healthy, and delicious. You could easily sub a piece of salmon or even some tofu.

I simply season some chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and whatever spice blend I find in my spice rack then put them on the tray with the brussels after 15 minutes.

If I'm extra hungry, I'll throw some mini potatoes (cut in half) on the tray with the brussels when they go into the oven. They'll cook in the same amount of time. Easy!

Make a super simple salad (or pick one of Mann's Nourish Bowls or a Veggie Slaw) and you've just made yourself a crazy easy and crazy delicious dinner. Win!!
