Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Sweet Potatoes & Onions
(78 calories | 2 2 1 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
Chopped Brussels sprouts, carrots, sweet potatoes, carrots, and onions drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper and roasted until tender. This easy roasted veggies dish proves that good food can be simple and delicious.
That’s all there is to it. If you have never roasted vegetables or don’t do it often, I encourage you to make it a habit. Even people who claim that they don’t like vegetables, have been known to change their minds after sampling them roasted.
The Skinny on Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Carrots
Roasted brussels sprouts and carrots are a great example. I’ve turned lots of Brussels sprouts haters into lovers, just by suggesting that they give roasting a chance.
Most any vegetable—from asparagus to zucchini—can be roasted on it’s own with delicious results. But something magical happens when you mix a variety of them together.
This combination of sweet, savory, soft and crunchy is a wonderful example. Last night, I simply tossed together my recent Farmer’s Market finds to accompany our turkey burgers.
The burgers were good, but these luscious roasted brussels sprouts, carrots, sweet potatoes and onions stole the show.
If you want a delicious way to eat more vegetables, you owe it to yourself to try roasting.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Sweet Potatoes, & Onions Recipe
- 2 cups halved brussels sprouts
- 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
- 5 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
- 1 medium onion peeled and roughly chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat your oven to 400F degrees.
- Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
- Place the vegetables in a large bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to combine and coat the vegetables with oil. (Doing this step in a bowl instead of directly on the baking sheet requires much less oil!)
- Tip the vegetables out onto the foil lined baking sheet and spread them out into a single layer.
- Bake until the sweet potatoes and carrots are tender when pierced with a fork and brussels sprouts and onions are golden brown, stirring once or twice, about 30 to 40 minutes.
