Tamarind Brussel Sprouts & Chickpea Tray Bake

I absolutely love Brussel sprouts, they are definitely not just for Christmas and I particularly love them in this one tray wonder recipe. They taste so delicious when they are roasted and the tamarind dressing adds a delicious zesty flavour. Make sure to not skip on the chopped peanuts as they really make this dish extra delicious adding a delicious crunch!

400gr of Bruseel Sprouts – trimmed and cut in halves 

5 shallots – peeled and cut into quarters 

1 can of chickpeas (400gr) – drained and rinsed 

1 tsp of ground coriander 

1 tsp of ground cumin 

1 tsp of cayenne pepper 

2 tbsp of olive oil for roasting + 1 tbsp of oil for dressing 

1 tbsp of tamarind paste 

1 tsp of of maple syrup 

Salt & pepper to taste 

Serve it with:

A handful of chopped coriander 

A handful of chopped salted peanuts 

A dollop of coconut yogurt (optional)
