Ingredients

Brussel Sprouts:

  • 2 lbs Brussel sprouts cut in half
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil

Chickapea Pasta:

  • 1 box of Chickapea Pasta
  • 2 Tablespoons of salt

Yogurt Sauce:

  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 3 cloves of minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of finely minced oregano and parsley
  • 1/4 cup of cranberries
  • 2 cups of yogurt mixed with 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt more or less to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

Assembling:

  • Chickapea Pasta cooked
  • Roasted Brussel Sprouts above
  • Yogurt Sauce above
  • 1/4 cup of cranberries for sprinkling
  • 1/3 cup of toasted pine nuts for sprinkling
  • 2 Tablespoons of minced chives and parsley
  • 1 tablespoon of chilli flakes

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 420 degrees F.
  2. Season the Brussel sprouts with salt, nutmeg and olive oil. Toss well and roast for 18-25 minutes.
  3. In a pot of boiling salted water, cook the chickapea pasta for about 8 minutes until al dente. In the meantime prepare the sauce.
  4. Heat the olive oil over medium heat, add in the garlic and herbs. Sautee the mixture for a minute and add in the cranberries. Sautee for an extra minute and add in the yogurt mixed with cornstarch. Lower the heat to medium low and stir until the yogurt sauce starts to bubble. Don't let it boil vigorously, rather keep the heat on medium low or just low and have the sauce gently simmer until you're ready to serve.
  5. Assemble the pasta plate by tossing the roast Brussel sprouts with the chickapea pasta on a serving plate. Spoon the yogurt sauce over the pasta without tossing them together. Sprinkle extra cranberries, pine nuts, chives and herbs and finish off with chilli flakes. Serve and enjoy :)
