Chances are if I go to a restaurant and I see brussels sprouts on the menu, they’ll end up on my plate.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts tossed in a fresh thyme butter and Cotija cheese

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Brummel and Brown Organic Buttery Spread with Yogurt. All thoughts and opinions are my own. It’s kinda weird because as a kid I’d do everything I could to avoid them. Mushy, dull green and smelly is how I’d have described them 20 years ago. But definitely not now. I’d change the description to crispy, tasty, deliciously green and not in the slightest smelly, except for an amazing smell of fresh thyme on these! Usually I’ll always roast my sprouts just because it’s so easy and the high temperature keeps the sprouts soft but still with a bite, and turns all those tiny loose leaves charred and crispy. So what do you say to these healthy veggies tossed in a creamy, buttery spread when they come straight out of the oven? Yup, I combined Brummell and Brown’s new organic buttery spread which is made using plant based oils and organic yogurt with my roasted sprouts.

Try roasting your brussels sprouts and then tossing them in butter!

I swear it looks buttery, tastes buttery, and spreads smoothly, but it’s made with yogurt! Seriously guys, as soon as I tasted it, I knew it would be perfect for my brussels sprouts. For extra flavor, I threw in a lot of chopped fresh thyme with some sea salt and black pepper and called it a day. It really doesn’t need much more than that. As soon as the sprouts were done, I transferred them to a bowl and added a few small dollops of the thyme infused buttery spread. A couple of quick air tosses and the spread had melted, coating the sprouts and making it almost like a thyme flavored buttery sauce! So easy, so tasty, and the perfect side dish for any main course.
